Assembled at named place and transfer to Lishui City. After arrival, your first peek into this fairyland will be Dinghu Peak, which shapes like a bamboo shoots after rain so has been longtime reputed as the highest bamboo peak in the world. Hiking along the trails, you will easily indulge in green trees,tender river and fresh air here and also will wonder its ponds among green pines and verdant cypresses, placid but inexhaustible.
Your lunch today will be village cuisines.
Afterwards, head for Zhutan Mountain, which is the best part of whole Xiandu Scenic Spot according to local people’s recommendation and known as its beautiful reflection of Xiandu for shutterbug. It is said that Zhu Xi, a famous poet of Song Dynasty, used to go sailing here during his study tour so hence the name. And the best viewing point of Zhutan Mountain is Xian Di, where you can command a spectacular view of a mixture of Xiandu natural landscape and idyllic scenery. If you are lucky, you can use your lens to capture the renown image of “Old Oxen Plough Field” by standing on Baisui Bridge.
Later transfer to Dayang Mountain and stay overnight, which is the best campsite to enjoy a grand view of the sea of clouds. With the height of 1500 meters, Dayang Mountain is considered as the highest peak of Southeast Zhejiang coastal area, without large-scale development so far and still maintaining its primitive simplicity. Standing on the top of the hill, you can enjoy the sight of cows grazing and grass swinging everywhere.
