M42***35 Not a famous mountain, no one flowing in the most primitive beauty in the modern atmosphere. Come to Zhengguoqu, the feeling is the bright red, the green water, is the purest heart. Shun brook and down, red oysters through the rocks, green water bend around the winding winding here, is green water love red oysters' perseverance, or red oysters love green water tender feelings. Touch the high mountain peaks of the rock wall, layers of folds are the wind and the moon witness, the accumulation of day and night, as if suddenly touch the years of billions of years ago, perhaps from then on, red and blue water love has begun, perhaps from then on, they have been identified each other, the agreement of life and death, Love each other, depend on each other.

Walking along the stream, picking up the most edge of the stone, throwing into the blue waves to ripples, a pool of crisp, the waves of light, sparkling hope, soothe the heart. And along the mountain road, stepping on the colorful, sighing spring to spring, time is easy to pass. Strive suddenly see the rock crack, splendid blooming small daisies, like in the times in the flood, struggle, hard-working us, facing the sun, growing constantly. It was evening when we left, and the Holy Spirit of the mountains watched us leave, not at all, in the sunset.

Today I would like to tell a few words about Chinese pyramids. This is Qianling 乾陵。There is probably the hugest pyramid in the world. its height is about 300 m. Xianyang / Xi'an surroundings counts more than 200 pyramid-shaped hills where emperors, their wifes, princess, generals and high ranked servants were buried. Most famous mound belongs to the Qing Shi Huang Di. But we will try to understand what does make Qianling special. At first, we have to note, that all mounds were made from pressed soil, and only Qianling demonstrates stone walls. Qianling actually is considered as a mountain, there is accurately avoided fact to name it pyramid. In this location (photo is presented) we can see two other mounds, those belongs to Wuza Tian empresses and her husband. These two really looks like non professional replica compared to tall mountain)))))
Fact number two. All mounds construction / creation process was documented with details by lovely writing ancient Chinese bureaucrats, except... Qianling mountain.
Tourists are not allowed to climb Qianling, but it's easy to do. Just turn right from tourist path, come around and start to climb trough the forest from back side. Well, the no name pyramid welcomes you and gives you understanding of the situation. Ancient people tried to copy, to replicate gorgeous monument, but their effort resulted in simple soil hills construction. My wife and I have visited almost all big mounds in Shaanxi plain area, but only Qianling lonely and forgotten pyramid is made of rock with its big stone steps like a huge stair. It looks so old, ancient, even archaic. You will feel that, the pyramid had stood before Chinese ancient civilization bloom, watched epoch by epoch, and it is still standing now.
How to get there : from Xi'an 城西客运站 just take a intercity bus to 乾县，busses departs every 30-40 minutes. From 乾县站 after arriving take a cabby (10 min) or any public bus (30 min) to the Qianling 乾陵。
For thousands of years, in order to be rich and wealthy, gold and silver jewels, the tomb thieves who went to the tombs are always presenting endlessly. However, in the vast stolen tombs, the royal tombs have often become the first choice for the tomb thieves because of the vastness of the baby. In the change of history, there is simply no one who survived the mausoleum of the emperor, and was simply "disturbed by the dream." Of course, there are also headaches for the tomb thieves, that is, Wu Zetians "Wan Nian Shou" - Fuling.
