Luya Mountain Scenic Area
The "Hanging Village", formerly known as Wanghuagou Village, is located in Censhan Township, Ningwu County, Shanxi Province. The whole village is located on a cliff with an altitude of more than 2300 meters. Looking up from the bottom of the valley, it looks like a castle in the air. The whole village is empty on a half mountain cliff with a height of more than 100 meters from the ground, leaning against the cliff and facing the canyon, forming a paradise that is incompatible with the surrounding world. From the outside, because the hillside space is narrow, the back of the house is located on the cliff stone, and the front half is built in the air. A few wooden piles protrude from the mountain crevices, supporting the whole village, giving a sense of tottering. The only "main road" in the village is paved with wooden piles one by one. The road is narrow and half suspended in the air, just like the ancient plank road, which makes people worry about falling down accidentally. In this ancient village, there are stone paths and simple dwellings everywhere. The villagers are leisurely living a farming life of sunrise and sunset. The village is ancient and quiet, but it is famous far and near. People call it "Hanging Village".
Fenhe River is a sacred river of life, accounting for one quarter of the total area of Shanxi Province, with a total length of 716 kilometers. It flows through 19 counties and cities in Shanxi Province, and has raised 40 percent of the children of the Three Jin Dynasty. It is the loving and broad mother river in the hearts of Shanxi people. The source of Fenhe River is Luya Mountain Scenic Area, which is rated as the National Water Conservancy Scenic Area.
