Blossom of Galsang flower sea beautifying your WeChat Moments
CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- Not many flowers are in bloom in Chongqing in October, but in the suburbs of Banan Tianping Mountain, Galsang flowers are always so eye-catching. Blue sky, white clouds, lakeside, pink flowers…All of these are romantic.
To admire the blossom of Galsang flowers
The first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of Chongqing’s Galsang flower sea is Tianping Mountain because of its size and proximity to the downtown. The Galsang flowers are back in bloom this year on Tianping Mountain and are now in their best season. The Galsang flowers lend the place an extraordinary fragrance. Beautiful flowers can be seen everywhere, next to farmhouses, on lakes, in the woods and on hillsides, and one cannot help but be mesmerized and fascinated. You can take beautiful pictures here, and also dress up in beautiful traditional costumes with paper umbrellas to pretend that you are in the ancient times.
Come and visit this peaceful paradise some day at your leisure. You can enjoy the tranquility and simplicity, and when you get tired you can even go for a boat ride on the lake, which is very pleasant. In addition to the graceful Galsang flowers, there is also a large area of red crape myrtles on the mountain, where you can also come with your partner. It is said that if you see them, you will have a lifetime of happiness.
At night, you can also camp here and breathe the fresh air. The sky is so close that you can touch it. Everything is so beautiful.

Tip: Galsang flowers in Tianping Mountain are distributed everywhere, but are most concentrated in two places:
One place is that the entire hill next to Yunlintian Township is full of Galsang flowers; and the other place is near the lake and at the bottom of Tianping Mountain, where there are flowers and water, and they match each other.
There are a number of interesting places to visit near Tianping Mountain, and we have made one- or two-day tours.
Downtown – Tianping Mountain – Tianxin Temple – Downtown
Day 1: Downtown – Fengsheng Ancient Town – Dong Hot Spring
Day 2: Dong Hot Spring – Tianping Mountain - Tianxin Temple – Downtown
Tianxin Temple is a newly internet-famous attraction in recent years. The environment of the temple is very secluded, where you can listen to the morning bell, watch the sunrise, watch the clouds, or enjoy a little freedom from the observation deck with a view of the mountains.
Fengsheng Ancient Town
Fengsheng Ancient Town was established in the late Ming and early Qing dynasties. Many intact ancient dwellings are preserved here, with exquisite wood carvings and symmetrical architectural structure, all of which show the representative style of Bayu dwellings.
You can take a slow walk here and when you’re tired, head to a quaint little restaurant for an authentic handmade Douhua and handmade noodles.
Dong Hot Spring
Dong Hot Spring is a hot spring in Chongqing with a very good reputation and good water quality. It is surrounded by green hills and flowers, and there are many farmhouses nearby, so it is not expensive to stay overnight.
There is also Asia’s only natural hot spring in a hot hole, where people can either take a steam bath or bathe in the water. (Translated by Wang Huixin, Fathom Language Limited)
