Take a Tour of Gongyi, What a Blessing!

As July draws to an end and heralds the start of August, the weather can only be described as baking hot or boiling hot. Frozen suckers, watermelons, video games, air conditioners, WiFi and TV series are essential for everyone. Two-month summer vacation spent indoor makes your parents give you the cold shoulder.

Why not smile? It is happiness that counts. Go out of the home to travel and leave all the troubles behind.

Take a look of the sunset and sunrise, which are always there for you. Eight scenic areas of Gongyi will bring blessings to you.

History of Kang’s Family

No. Kang Baiwan’s Mansion

Kangdian Town, Gongyi City, Henan Province

The weather during this period is so magical that the gale suddenly rages along with outbreaks of storm in a sunny day with clouds in blue sky. After hundreds of years of rapid changes, even a grape leave and a moss tile in the mansion exude the lingering charm of history and heritage. Located in front of the Mangshan Mountain, facing the Luoshui River, the mansion is the spiritual homeland of Henan businessmen. The Liuyu Plaque representing the philosophy of Kang’s family influences later generations through its carved characters.

Homeland of the Saint of Poem

No. The Hometown of Du Fu

Nanyaowan Village, Zhanjie Town, Gongyi City, Henan Province

“Born in this land, returned to this land.” Chinese people all cherish a dream of root seeking. Du Fu’s artistic achievement in poetry enjoys an exceptional status in the history of Chinese poetry, which leads to later generations’ unremitting pursuit of that village and cave in which the great poet used to dwell.

Landscape of Longevity

No. Changshou Mountain in Zhulin Town

Zhulin Town, Gongyi City, Henan Province

Summer water is always adorable that it evaporates under the sunshine and takes away people’s heat. The towering Changshou Mountain gently and kindly watches people laughing and playing! The trees on the mountain grow calmly and stretch their branches and leaves to shadow playing kids.

Mysterious Xuehua Cave

No. Xuehua Cave of Fuxi Mountain

Xinzhong Town, Gongyi City, Henan Province

In the hot summer, a place with a constant temperature of 15 is so appealing. This place does exist in the blissful Fuxi Mountain. Exquisite stalactites look like blooming flowers, delicious grapes, or fantastic corals. Mostly, the ice-cold water drops down, as if communicating with you, and then it will be everything you imagine!

Qinglong Sunset

No. Ciyun Temple of Qinglong Mountain

Dayugou Town, Gongyi City, Henan Province

Summer sunset always makes people feel comfortable and free. The Qinglong Mountain under the sunset is also enveloped by an amiable atmosphere. In the luxuriant and beautifully tinted forest, it is perfect to stroll in the mountain with a partner and watch the sunset. The smell of incense in the Ciyun Temple could comfort the restless soul.

Evening Bell in Shiku Temple

No. Shiku Temple

Heluo Town, Gongyi City, Henan Province

The emperor and empress worship the Buddha as the bell rings. The cliff niche is just like the dragon gate. The stone-carved unique copy is precious in the world. It remains in the Shiku Temple under the Dali Mountain, Heluo Town. The fragrant flowers in the courtyard and the solemn stone-carved statue vividly represent the scene of the royal Buddha worship in Northern Wei Dynasty.

Time-honored Song-Dynasty Mausoleum

No. Northern-Song-Dynasty Imperial Mausoleum

Xicun Town, Zhitian Town, Huiguo Town and the urban area of Gongyi City, Henan Province

In retrospect and contemplation, a small place like this buries a glorious royal history. “The current green countryside meadow used to be withered grass.” Let us explore this “imperial mausoleum” and trace the history of the stone monument.

Songyin Forest

No. Songyin Scenic Area

Jiajinkou Town, Gongyi City, Henan Province

Climb high and gaze far into the vast world. Climb onto the highest peak of Gongyi in this hot summer and watch the jagged rocks of grotesque shapes and the wave-like pinewood. Take your friends and families to explore this green world, and relax yourself to listen to the sounds of nature.
