  China’s Excellent Tourist City   National Charming City Picturesque Landscape · Ecological Huzhou

 Huzhou  Dai Biaoyuan—a poet from Yuan Dynasty

    A range of mountains rises from Mountain Tianmu. Rivers, streams and canals flow from Lake Tiahu. I have traveled to every clear and beautiful place in south of China and only to find that Huzhou is the most ideal city to live in.

 Named after Taihu Lake, Huzhou is located in the northern part of Zhejiang Province. With Shanghai City to its east, Hangzhou City to its south, Anhui Province to its west, and Tai Lake to its north, it lies at the heart of Yangtze River Delta and has always been known as “land of fish and rice, home of silk and state of rich cultural heritage”. With favorable natural conditions and well-preserved ecological environment, Huzhou boasts abundant tourism resources. Clear waters and green mountains scattered around have produced a unique scenery as depicted in Dai Biaoyuan’s poem. The ancient town which once enjoyed high prosperity in the south of China has rendered the city a touch of antique and classic. Thanks for its deep-rooted calligraphy and painting culture, the air seems to be fiiled with the fragrance of ink-brushes. Every tourist coming will be impressed by the pastoral life led by local farmers as described in the line “In front of western hills white egrets fly up and down, In peach-mirrored stream mandarin fish are full grown”. On this land, one can not only take in the full beauty of tea culture shrine but also have a wonderful view of the vast sea of bamboo forests.

Picturesque and ecological, this is Huzhou--a place where mountains and water are naturally combined, where ecology and humanity are harmoniously integrated, where history and the future are closely connected.

he Mogan Mountain State-level Scenic Spot is located in the western part of Deqing County.
