Nineteen members of GoChengdu gusto from 10 countries had a wonderful outing on April 14 to the Danjing Mountains, riding the old-style steam train and getting a close look of the peonies. The trip was part of the second spring outing activity "Look for the Most Beautiful Spring in Chengdu", organized by local website www.gochengdu.cn.
Danjing Mountains of Pengzhou City, about 50 km to the north of downtown Chengdu, is known for natural scenery and large farms of peonies, which come out in spring and make the mountainsides a Land of Colorful Brocade when viewed afar.
Pengzhou City is one of the three most famous peonies planting areas in China.
At about 10:30 on the morning of the day, the members arrived in the Town of Danjing Mountains and began the trip by taking a sightseeing train to the foot of the mountains.
They visited historical sites and appreciated the peonies along the way to the mountain. Sita, from Nepal, exclaimed,"it's so gorgeous here with thriving peonies all over the mountain and the air is so fresh. I like to see the moss on the stone stairs. It looks like as if the stairs are covered with a green blanket! "
At noon they had a peony-themed feast, with dishes prepared with peonies, a variety of local special foods, local wine and fresh tea.
After lunch, they had sessions on weaving palm fibers at Hanbai Pavilion, halfway up the mountain, painting peonies and calligraphy in a farmhouse at the mountain peak. Simona, from Czech, said happily, "It's so great, I must cherish the peony painting with the inscriptions by the master painter! "
The thriving plants and fresh air made the outing an unforgettable experience to the members, who were impressed by the scenery of Danjing Mountains and the colorful activities.
