The first stop, Miyun Yunmengshan Forest Park

Yunmengshan National Forest Park is located in the west of Miyun City. Yunmeng Mountain, known as Yunmeng Mountain in ancient times, is a famous natural scenic spot in the suburbs of Beijing. The total area of ​​the park is 2208 hectares, and the main peak is 1414 meters above sea level.

On the 1,000-meter cliff east of Lianhuatan in Yunmengshan National Forest Park, it was the seat of the joint government of Feng (Fengning), Luan (Luanping) and Mi (Miyun) counties during the Anti-Japanese War. The locals call it "Leopard Cave".

In the spring of 1941, more than 4,000 Japanese and puppet troops carried out comb-like sweeps in the Yunmeng Mountain area for more than ten days. At that time, Fengluanmi Party and government organs lived in Leopard Cave. The clothes covered the mouth of my one-year-old child, and the lives of dozens of comrades in the cave were saved, but the child died of suffocation. The Japanese and puppet raids ended in failure.

The temperature in Yunmeng Mountain is generally 6-7°C lower than that in the plains below the mountain, but the temperature in summer is maintained at 20-24°C, with the highest temperature around 28°C. The high-altitude negative ions are 6-12 times higher than that of the city, and the air humidity and ventilation conditions are superior. It is a good place to escape the summer heat and enjoy the cool air.

The Niuxinsuo Waterfall under the lotus petals is the largest, with a width of about 30 meters. There are three waterfalls in one waterfall, with a total drop of 86 meters, which is very spectacular. In addition, there are many large and deep pools, such as Lianhua Pond, Bitan Pond, Tiger Cave Pond, Shao Pond and so on. The scenery along the way is infinite.

The second stop, Fenglinsu, experience the food and meditation in the Zen courtyard

Fenglinsu Farm House located in Heishansi Village is a Zen-themed resort hotel. Heishansi Village is small and very quiet.

There are various trees such as walnuts, persimmons, hawthorns, pears, peppers, etc. within reach by the roadside in the village. Small courtyards are hidden among the trees.

There are five courtyards for accommodation, and each courtyard has multiple houses, which are suitable for two or three friends and families to live together. The houses are rebuilt and refurbished from the original farmhouses, which not only have the rural atmosphere, but also are clean and comfortable. In line with the habits of urbanites. There is a temple not far from here. Every time it is homework time, you can hear the bells of the ancient temple when you sit in the yard. Sitting quietly and tasting tea in the bell can make people's minds calm and the vulgar thoughts will disappear. This is a good place for a light escape not far from the city.

Each courtyard can accommodate 3 to 14 people, and the five courtyards can accommodate 40 to 50 people at the same time. Various group building activities can be hosted here. Advance reservations are required on weekends and holidays.

The dining time of Fenglinsu can be reserved according to the needs of guests.

Originally, the main food here is vegetarian, but the meat dishes are also classic and unique. It is close to the Miyun Reservoir, and the fish in the reservoir is the main dish. It is the characteristic of this place to eat more than one fish.

The editor was fortunate to experience one fish and four meals. The rattan pepper fish fillet uses fresh peppers just picked from the pepper tree in the village. The stewed fish head in sauce is rich in sauce, and the meat is tender and juicy. Salt and pepper fish bones are made by wrapping the two ribs, bones and meat of the fish with prepared noodles, frying until light yellow, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. It tastes charred on the outside and tender on the inside, crispy and fragrant. Don't talk about eating it as a dish, even as a snack is also very good! The braised fish tail is a regular braised fish tail. Finally, the juice is poured on the cooked fish tail. The aroma of juice and fish will make you taste the long-lost taste deep in your memory. The fish here are all wild fish from Miyun Reservoir, without artificial feed, and there is no fishy smell of pond fish in the fish meat, instead of the fishy smell is the original fragrance of the fish meat. Such delicacy must be tasted here.

The third stop is Beishicheng Stone Painting Museum, where you can experience painting on stones, turning stones into gold.

After climbing the mountain and eating fish, it is a good choice to go to the Stone Painting Museum in Beishi Town.

We usually draw on paper and on cloth. The paintings here are painted on cobblestones. The paintings on this kind of cobblestones pay attention to the materials of the stones, make full use of the texture and shape of the stones, combine the hand-painted techniques with the characteristics of the stones, and let the natural The combination of natural craftsmanship and creative artificiality creates exquisite stone paintings.

This is called Shicheng Town. It was originally a pass of the Great Wall. The Great Wall here is built of stones. There are stones everywhere, in various sizes and shapes. What you can't imagine is that a considerable part of the works in this exhibition hall are painted by local farmers.

In the past, people in Shicheng mainly focused on agriculture. During the slack season in winter, farmers would stay at home and have nothing to do. Mr. Qiancheng, who loves painting, organized farmers for painting training. As a result, more than a dozen farmers fell in love with the art of stone painting and became outstanding students. creator of stone paintings.

Stone painting artists from all over the country are also often invited to come here for exchanges. Now there are thousands of stone painting works on display here. Many of the works are ingenious and ingenious.

There are also many series of works, such as the "Gubeikou Anti-Japanese War" series by Mr. Qian Cheng, which are based on historical real events of the Anti-Japanese War in Gubeikou, which is not far from here.

When you come here, you can experience the process of painting on stones. Under the guidance of Mr. Qian Cheng, watching stubborn stones turn into exquisite stone paintings by your own hands, you will believe that you are the undiscovered artist. Who is the old and the young, what is my name? The key is that when someone asks you how much this work of art sells for, you can proudly wave your hand: This is the only one in the world, and it is a priceless treasure. Don’t sell it!

It's my first work, okay?

The fourth stop, Elf Valley, experience the fun of streams in the valley, drink mountain springs to your heart's content, and refresh your body.

After experiencing the majesty and beauty of Yunmeng Mountain, come and experience the streams and water fun of the Fairy Valley Natural Scenic Area. It is not far from Shicheng and can be reached in 20 minutes by car. Now the broken road shown on the original Gaode map here has been opened, and there is no need to detour to other places.

The Elf Valley scenic spot is not big, and the entrance is very small. It doesn't look like a scenic spot. This is a village-run scenic spot. It has not undergone vigorous publicity, and not many people know about it. There are few people in the scenic spot and it is very quiet. It is a place to avoid Noisy valley, although this valley is not well-known, it is a good place with winding paths.

After a suspension bridge, you enter the Valley of the Elf. A small stream connects the entire valley. This small stream is flexible, sometimes slow and sometimes fast, sometimes endless like a line, sometimes converging into a pool, sometimes turbulent in three folds, and sometimes flat like a mirror. The stream is clean and clear, with sand and gravel as the bottom in some places, and springs in some places on the rocks. Over time, a half-meter-deep groove was carved out of the boulder. A heart-shaped stone nest was formed beside the groove, and a lover held the stream water. Man Shiwo will love each other wholeheartedly for a lifetime.

The clear and shallow part of the stream reaches the ankles, so you can take off your shoes and play in the water to your heart's content, feeling the coolness of the spring water. When you want to have fun, you can also change into your swimsuit and swimming trunks at the changing place of Shi Leiqi, and jump into the Lingquan bath to have fun.

The spring water in the valley here comes from eight springs in the mountain. There is a spiritual spring near the valley. The flow of the spring water is very small. It takes about a minute to fill a mineral water bottle. It is surrounded by mud on all sides. Here is natural mountain spring water, the spring water is clear and sweet, and the temperature is as if it has just been taken out of the refrigerator. When it is poured into the mineral water bottle, a layer of water mist will accumulate on the outside of the water bottle. Drink it thoroughly. It was cool, and all the heat in the body was immediately dispelled. This spring water is sweeter than the slightly sweet brand mountain spring water sold in supermarkets. The owner of the scenic spot told me that he once asked the relevant testing department to test the water in the spring, and the test report proved that it is directly drinkable mountain spring water.

The old man who took us in is over 70 years old this year. He has lived here all his life since he was a child. He told me that his home used to be in this valley, where there used to be farmland and villages, and now it still supports 70 There are many sheep. These sheep are usually scattered in the mountains to graze on their own. Every once in a while, they go up the mountain to retrieve the sheep. I asked him if the sheep would not be eaten by other wild animals? He said no, there are no wild animals in this mountain, there are only some wild boars and hares. He pointed to the opposite hillside and said that there are many wild boars in the forest. People ran away early. Easily invisible.

Entering from the valley, there used to be a hospital for the Eighth Route Army during the Anti-Japanese War, and the wounded at that time were recuperating here. Seeing this 70-year-old man walking swiftly on the mountain road, he couldn't help feeling: "One side of the water and soil nourishes one side, and the mountains and rivers here really nourish people."

You can also stay in Elven Valley. Although the accommodation conditions are average, it looks relatively clean and the price is relatively cheap. The food here is pure mountain flavor, and firewood eggs are standard in almost every scenic spot. Needless to say, I was deeply impressed by the braised pork and cold purslane. The fat-looking pork It tastes not greasy at all and is very fragrant. The cold purslane is crisp and refreshing, which is a breath of fresh air in the hot summer. A bottle of cold beer is naturally indispensable for those who don’t drive. After a whole morning of crazy fun, eating some of these mountain-style meals is very satisfying. Come on!

At the fifth stop, the old friend Ji of Kimporo Village tasted tea and read books, and became a cultural person for a while.

Go back to Miyun County from Fairy Valley, pass Shicheng and go forward, and turn into a village from a small road. This is Jinpoluo Village. In the center of the village, there is a characteristic dining and accommodation courtyard called "Old Friends Season".

Kimporo Village is located in the plains and is a big village. My Friends is in the center of the village. This was originally the house of a rich scholar. It has a history of more than 100 years. The houses of more than 100 years are usually very cool inside. Yes, when you open the door of an old house in this hot summer, you can really feel the coolness that has accumulated for more than a hundred years. Of course, air conditioning is also essential in such a house!

This is a triple courtyard with an outer courtyard and an inner courtyard. In the courtyard, there are many unique styles of houses for tourists to choose according to the housing conditions. There are big bed rooms, small bed rooms, tatami rooms, family rooms, courtyards, and tree houses.

The most distinctive feature is the tree house. You can have a panoramic view of the entire courtyard from the second-floor glass. The shadow of the tree outside the house is projected on the frosted glass, and the tree shadow shakes in the breeze. You can feel the exquisite elegance in the bathroom.

There is also a tatami room that can be described as a model of space utilization. It seems to be a small attic left over from the construction of the house. Then it becomes a lounge. Sitting on the tatami and admiring the shade of trees outside the glass window, one can't help admiring the ingenious idea of ​​the designer.

The courtyard is full of flowers, plants and green plants. There are hanging chairs, couches and tea tables in the woods. A small wooden horse is there to attract children.

A row of mountain bikes for customers to ride under a glass awning.

As soon as you enter the gate, there is a row of houses on the left. When you walk in, there is a tea room. As soon as you enter, you will be surrounded by a strong atmosphere of books. This is a leisure inn with the theme of reading. People often come here to hold reading clubs. Inside the courtyard There are many places for customers to sit quietly and read books. There is even a place for children to read and entertain.

It is a rare enjoyment for urbanites to come here to read books quietly, taste tea, drink coffee, eat farm meals, escape the hustle and bustle of the city, and take a few days of meditation travel here on the day of rest.

There is no menu here. The reason why there is no menu is because the meals here are all seasonal meals. You can eat whatever is ripe in the field. You need to make a reservation to eat here, otherwise you will not be able to eat at all. Because all the vegetables needed for cooking need to be picked in the field, and everything is fresh when picked and cooked. The word "freshness" is something that today's urbanites can only hope for.

When I arrived, it was a Tuesday afternoon, and it wasn’t a holiday. There were relatively few guests here. In the empty tea room, a puppy stretched its limbs comfortably and lay on the ground to sleep. It had a big body and looked like a giant schnauzer. The little girl in the tea room told me its mother was a Teddy, but I don't know what kind of dog its father is. In fact, I think it doesn't matter what kind of dog its father is, the important thing is that everyone loves it, and it is also very sensible. It can always show its unscrupulousness as the master at the right time. I joke with it: as Teddy's son, does your mother know what you look like?

Book rafting can also be carried out here, which is the sharing and exchange of reading. You can bring the books you have read and put them here, and exchange them for the ones you have not read at home to read. It's just that I can't figure out how they control not to let all the books on the bookshelf become primary and secondary school textbooks. Some questions are still left, waiting for you to solve it!

The sixth stop, Miyun County, experienced the production of intangible cultural heritage Linglong pillows. Why don't you sleep with your ears pressed?

There is a district-level intangible cultural heritage Linglong pillow in Miyun District, and the inheritor is Zhu Huiping. Before I met Mr. Zhu, I didn't know what Linglong pillow is, but as soon as I met, I was attracted by the Linglong pillow that Mr. Zhu showed me.

what! Isn't this the pillow I've been dreaming of for years? I often feel that there is no place to put my ears when I sleep on my side. Let’s put them flat. After a while, my ears and scalp stick together, and the feeling of sticking together is very uncomfortable. Put your ears up, and you will feel pain when you press them for a while. Anyway, it’s uncomfortable no matter what, I always feel that the ears are in the way when sleeping on the sides, and it’s redundant. Unless you sleep on your back, how many people in this world sleep on your back all night? The reason why I was delighted to see this kind of Linglong pillow is because this kind of pillow will not "press your ears" when you sleep.

Teacher Zhu told me that the origin of this exquisite pillow comes from "grandmother's pillow".

Teacher Zhu told me that her grandma used to be an embroiderer in the palace. Back then, the concubines in the palace had to keep neatly dressed and be ready to meet the emperor’s summons at any time, so they wore cheongsams and flowerpot shoes every day. It will be very troublesome when you are resting, because the flag head cannot be taken off during the lunch break, and you have to be ready to respond at any time, so the delicate embroidered ladies in the palace designed a kind of embroidered flag for the ladies. Pillow, the flag head and ears can be placed in the empty place when lying on this kind of pillow, so that the clothes can be kept neat and tidy at any time, waiting to be called.

When grandma left the palace, she brought such a pillow out of the palace. After many years, Mr. Zhu’s mother often felt very painful because she couldn’t sleep. Mr. Zhu thought that if she could make a pillow like the one that grandma brought out for her mother, it would be great. It should be able to help the mother relieve the discomfort of sleeping. So I started to study my grandma's pillow with eyes on all sides, but found that the design of the pillow was complicated and ingenious. It took him more than a week of repeated research to figure out the tailoring plan. With ingenuity, she finally made such a pillow. She gave the pillow to her mother. The mother was very happy. The problem of insomnia for many years was finally solved!

Soon after, her mother asked her to make some more pillows. It turned out that people around her saw that her pillows had the effect of improving sleep, and they all liked them very much, and expressed their desire for such pillows.

Mr. Zhu, since everyone needs such pillows, why not make more pillows like this to meet everyone's needs?

However, it is really too complicated and time-consuming to make such a pillow with holes on six sides, and it is too exhausting to make a few by yourself, and it is difficult for ordinary people to fully learn the whole production process, so Mr. Zhu thought of mobilizing People around her make it together. She decomposes and divides the production steps of Linglong pillow, and subcontracts them to those who are idle at home. Each person completes one or two steps. This not only ensures the quality of each step, but also makes the complex Things are broken down into simple procedures, and finally a large-scale production is formed. The purpose of producing Linglong pillow in large quantities has been realized. As soon as Linglong pillow appeared, it was immediately sought after by everyone. It once sold more than 200,000 pieces within a year.
I asked Mr. Zhu if such an exquisite pillow can be produced by mechanization? Teacher Zhu told me that if it is mechanized production, it will lose its meaning. The process of Linglong pillow is very complicated, and many invisible needles and stitches need to be stitched, so as to ensure that the customer will not open the thread after buying it. However, it is better to be able to see these conscientious processes every step of the way. So even if the labor cost of handmade is relatively high, she still insists on handmade.

On the basis of grandma's pillow, Mr. Zhu has developed and designed a variety of new pillows, three-hole pillows and long porous pillows came into being. Even if the three-hole pillow rolls over while sleeping, it will make the ears feel uncomfortable. Putting it in the hole will not be pressed, and the porous pillow can be used for two people to sleep together. Such a thoughtful design makes some people find Mr. Zhu to customize the pillow they need.

These thoughtful pillows made Teacher Zhu's reputation spread like wildfire. Miyun District specially issued a district-level non-cultural material heritage certificate to Mr. Zhu, and Mr. Zhu's unique design and production of fabric hydrangea won the "Golden Finger" honorary award at the "Fall in Love with Jinzhong, 2017 National Handicraft Expo". In the 2014 National Leisure Agriculture Creative Boutique Promotion Event, Mr. Zhu's work won the Gold Award for Product Creativity. The certificates and medals in that cabinet made me dizzy.

Mr. Zhu not only made his own products successful, but also brought employment opportunities to the people around him. At the same time, she is also enthusiastic about public welfare, donating money for disaster relief. As a member of the Miyun District Intangible Cultural Heritage Association, she is also enthusiastic about the inheritance of intangible cultural heritage, and unreservedly imparts her skills to those who love her skills. Inherited extracurricular teachers. Teach children fine arts and crafts. Seeing a few colorful ropes passing through her hands and weaving all kinds of exquisite knots, I couldn't help being dumbfounded, but I saw a group of young students who studied so seriously and mastered the skills so quickly , I can't help but admire Teacher Zhu's patience and love.

Teacher Zhu’s family lives in Miyun Stone City. In addition to the handicraft skills of Linglong pillow, her family also runs a leisure homestay. We are very fortunate to watch Teacher Zhu teach how to make Linglong pillow at Teacher Zhu’s home, and eat it. Teacher Zhu’s husband made it for us. I can't help but envy Teacher Zhu for having such a good husband and cooking such delicious first-hand meals. The big fish head was so delicious that my wife couldn’t leave her seat, and when she left reluctantly after eating, she still said, “Don’t blame me, it’s the fish head that moved first.”

Happy people always have common characteristics, such as cheerfulness, enthusiasm, and carelessness, coupled with hard work and hard work, this is what Mr. Zhu left a deep impression on me.

May Teacher Zhu be happier and happier, and that her Linglong Pillow can help more people.

Teacher Zhu said that everyone is welcome to come to his home to stay and experience intangible cultural heritage, and to eat seasonal vegetables grown by her home, but you must make an appointment in advance!

Traveling is not only about visiting mountains and rivers, eating, drinking and having fun, but if there are some surprises and gains, then it will be a full-fledged itinerary. The route recommended by the editor is a two-day full and fulfilling experience, how about it? Make an appointment with friends this weekend to drive your car and let’s go!
