Yingde: The Cradle of Flowers

ENGLISH & ESPAÑOL

Located in Qingyuan (China), Yingde (英德) has been one of the most beautiful places I had visited in China so far. It is a historical city in the north of Guangdong Province.

Situado en Qingyuan, Yingde (英德) ha sido sin duda uno de los lugares más bonitos visitados en China hasta ahora.

The way how I get here was arranged by a hiking group. I joined to a hiking group to explore this area. From Shenzhen, the guide arranged a bus service to take us at Yingde. The journey took about 4-5 hours with 30 minutes of break.

Once arrived to the destination, the route was from Chengxiacun (城下村) > slight hike/walk through Yingxifenglin corridor (英西峰林走廊景区), which has a great views (similar than Yanghsuo) > Bus pick up point to Yao village (南岗村瑶寨) with a stop in between the journey to admire one of the most stunning views which I will talk later on.

Mi visita a este sitio fué mediante un grupo de guiado. Desde Shenzhen cogimos un autobús hasta aquí, y su duración es de aprox 4 o 5 horas con un descanso de 30 minutos.

Llagados al destino, el comienzo de la caminata fué en Chengxiacun 城下村 a través del corredor Yingxifenglin 英西峰林走廊景区, que es una zona montañosa con varios pueblos en sus alrededores hasta el punto de recogida, para luego llevarnos a la aldea Yao 南岗村瑶寨 con una parada entre medio para disfrutar de unas vistas increíbles que os comentaré más adelante

EXPLORING AROUND

Arrived finally to Chengxiacun (城下村), we started the walk across the Ying Xifeng Lin corridor (英西峰林走廊景区).

Desde el punto de partida en Chengxiacun (城下村), empieza la ruta a través del corredor Ying Xifeng Lin (英西峰林走廊景区).

Our bus dropped us in this small village next to Ying Xifeng Lin corridor. From this village (城下村) there is a path which takes you through the mountains and is where the hike starts. The bridge in the photo above is a well-known starting point

Once crossed the stoned bridge, the hike is really pleasant and easy. Surrounded of great views, farms and small villages

Nuestro autobús nos dejó en una aldea justo al lado del punto de partida. El camino está rodeado de pequeños ríos, montañas y aldeas y es bastante relajante y es prácticamente llano. Ir en bici por esta ruta también es una buena opción

After few hours of walking, there is a cave to pass through with seemingly a dry lagoon.

Después de unas horas de caminata, hay unas cuevas como muestra en la foto de abajo. Por esta época, estaba bastante seco pero aún así no está tan mal!

Once finished the walk on this corridor after few hours, the bus pick us up to take us to Yao Village (南岗村瑶寨). On the way to this village, the bus dropped us in a tourist spot to take some photos and enjoy of its amazing views

Finalizada la caminata por el corredor, el autobús nos recogió e hicimos una parada antes de llegar a la aldea Yao. Para saber más sobre la aldea Yao, puedes hacer clic aquí

I bet for those who already visited Guillin and Yangshuo will find in these views kind of similar.

The location for this spot is unknown for me. I guess it’s in some point between Chengxiacun (城下村) and Yao Village (南岗村瑶寨)

Las vistas de esta zona son muy similares a las que se pueden encontrar en Guilin y Yangshuo. La parada que hicimos debió ser en un punto intermedio entre Yao y el corredor, pero difícil de saber

I hope you have the chance to enjoy this trip. Yingde is famous tourist attraction, hence it won’t be hard to get here by finding some bus or tour services.
