Trip Moments

Yumi   
When you mention Shennongjia, everyone's first reaction is savage, but after coming to Shennongjia, you will find that the scenery of Shennongjia is quite charming. Changsha goes to Shennongjia and takes the high-speed train to Yichang East Station and then transfers the bus to Shennongjia. Its bitter, but when you see the beauty, you will feel that everything is worth it. First stop: Muyu Town Introduction: Muyu Town is located in the first peak of Central China - the southern foothills of Shennongding, with an average elevation of 1,200 meters. As a provincial tourist resort, there are Shennongding and Shennongtan in the town. Famous tourist attractions such as Tianshengqiao and Xiangxiyuan are important nodes and tourist distribution centers on the tourism gold line of Hubei Three Gorges, Shennongjia and Wudang Mountains. It is the core section of the ecological and cultural tourism circle in western Hubei and is the reception center of Shennongjia. When we arrived at Muyu Town on the same day, it was already 7:00 pm, everyone stayed in the only four-star hotel in the local area Due to the one-day car, several of us planned to go outside and see the night. In Muyu Town, I saw a proprietress just picking up the fruit stand. I found that there are fresh pine nuts picked from the trees. Although it is a tourist attraction, it is very cheap. It is 10 pieces, 3 pieces, each one is fresh, and the inside is mixed. Full of pine nuts, it is soft to eat, but also a bit of pine fruit. Shennongjia has a large temperature difference between day and night. If you come here, you have to bring down jackets or thick clothes. Otherwise, it will be very cold in the morning and evening. In the evening, I have covered two quilts. The Shennongjia Hotels closet will basically have two quilts for everyones evening. To sleep cold, you need to add a quilt. The next morning, the tour guide said to take us to see the beautiful Golden Monkey Ridge
