Taohuayuan (the Peach Blossom Land)

 

Scenic Area Taohuayuan, a national AAAA scenic spot, is 15 kilometers southwest of Taoyuan county. It is famous because of the great prose entitled "Peach Blossom Spring" written by the great poet Tao Yuanming (365AD-427AD).

 

Extending from the spring is the extraordinary landscape where the grandeur of Mount Wuling, the quiet of the caves and valleys, the rolling water of Dongting Lake and the grace of the mountains and rivers are well blended. It presents people with the fascinating Peach Blossom Land, a land which is also one of the four Taoism holy places, called the No 42 Blessing Land.

 

Taohuayuan scenic area is composed of four scenic parts with different sceneries: Taoyuan Hill, Taohua Hill, Qinren Village and Taoxian Range. Dotted in the area are many stone tablets inscribed with poems, precious cultural relics and ancient buildings. “Fishing Village at Sunset” in the area is one of the "Eight Grand Sights in Hunan". In March when peach trees bloom, the place looks like a fairyland.
