The northwest of the motherland is a barren land, but the film has moved from here to the world. A classic “Westward Journey” cited how many Chinese and foreign travellers went to Ningxia, looking for “Zixia” in their hearts, and immersed in the local life of the largest Hui Autonomous Region. However, how many people know that in the same latitude and west, there is a Hui Autonomous Prefecture called “Linxia”. The scenery is far better than Ningxia Province, and it has a reputation of “plateau small Jiangnan”, but it is little known.

Tangwang Town, Shangshang Xinghua First Village
Drive from Yongjing County to Linxia City, and take the magnificent Liujiaxia Bridge. After a morning rush, you will arrive at Tangwang Town in Danxia Wonderland. It is a pity that Tang Wangzhen in the late autumn has long been full of apricot flowers and fruitful apricots. Only the rolling yellow river flows quietly, the turbid low peaks of the sky, such as the “Guilin scenery” on the plateau. A few farmhouses across the river bank smouldering smoke, and the scene of the Battle of the Waterway seems to have flashed from the front. I found a farmhouse, sunbathing in the warm sun, drinking tea and making three teas, waiting for a delicious Dongxiang meal.
A little bit was the drizzle of the day before, and the smoky mountains were everywhere. On the bright and light side of the sky, Danxia Wonderland appeared in front of everyone with a light Lingbo microstep, like a group of girls dressed in light outfits. Danxia in Tangwang Town is not able to win the colorful colors, but wins with a palace-like landform. The rolling hills are like tall, high-lying palaces, standing in the mountains, red, yellow and green, like the heavenly palace. The Hongta Mountain, which is located in Chuanxin, is like a dragon. From west to east, this magical land is divided into two rivers. The Hongta Temple is cut on the rock of Baizhang Hongta, and the name of the temple comes. There are three ancient Buddhas in the temple, and there are also ancient cave paintings and ancient Buddha portraits. Hongta Temple has experienced catastrophe and has been repaired several times. It is now a holy place for Dongxiang Buddhist culture.
A red and south-facing Jiangnan garden
Linxia Red Garden is located in the western suburb of Linxia City. It was originally a grass tree beach on the bank of Hongshui River. It was later renovated as a Jiangnan garden with flowers and ancient buildings. The park’s architecture combines the small and elegant Jiangnan garden style with the grand and magnificent Linxia local ethnic architectural features. The pavilions and pavilions are chic, with flying horns and carved beams, which are exquisite. The seasons changed, the peony disappeared, the autumn leaves were yellow, and the old people came to the Red Garden. There are only bustling people, such as the old man of meditation, the old woman of fitness, the girl who was attracted by the red leaves, and the yellow hair living on the side of the park. Children… The whole garden seems to be “empty.” However, this is a quiet, dilapidated, so that the entire paradise has a bit more bleak, a different kind of beauty, to be savoured.

It is called “eight squares and thirteen lanes”. There are Hui brick carvings, Han wood carvings, and Tibetan paintings. It is a national architectural art “Grand View Garden”. The gray-white Bafang 13th Lane under the white scorpion looks pale and colorless, and the scenery is mediocre. It is far less beautiful than many Jiangnan ancient towns. As night falls, the colorful lights illuminate the entire street. Here, for example, returning to the bustling night market in ancient times, the crowds coming and going, the vendors selling them, one street and one scene, just like crossing.

Equestrian playground turning waste into treasure
In the past, it was a stinking junkyard. This is a horse-riding playground for laughter and laughter. Majiazhuang Village, Nanlong Town, where the equestrian playground is located, is a poverty-stricken town with a per capita cultivated area of not only 0.11 mu. For a livelihood, most of the locals left their homes and went to work in the foreign land. As the local government lifted out the poverty work, the original garbage dump was converted into an equestrian playground, attracting a large number of tourists to watch the performance. The Tibetans on the equestrian playground are mostly Tibetans in Gannan. This group of well-versed entertainers, spinning and jumping on the galloping horseback, thrilling action, attracted a call of praise.
A city has a park where people can relax and be the best travel destination to experience the city’s cultural and cultural heritage. There is no high-value free ticket, cumbersome long-distance transportation, but you can enjoy the beauty of a secret. The park in the eastern suburbs of Linxia is one of such secrets. Dongjiao Park is close to the north bank of the Daxia River. The park is full of lush vegetation and a wide variety of flowers. In the late autumn suburbs park, chrysanthemums bloom quietly, maple leaves dance in the wind, there are people who talk and laugh, and children who have voices and laughter to do activities. The autumn here does not seem to be desolate, but it is a bit more warm. Stepping into the park through the flower stand promenade is the Hu Tingzhen Martyrs Memorial Park, where the statue of the martyrs stands and is solemn. Mu Inscription burned the glorious deeds of the revolutionary activities of the Hu Tingzhen martyrs. This is an important base for the school to carry out patriotic education.

Perhaps such a scene is not surprising in the South, but it is rare in the northwest of this bleak and poor ridge.
