On this weekend trip (by coach) to Yu County or Yuxian, part of Zhangjiakou City in Hebei Province, we will visit some old pagodas and pavillions, well-preserved Taoist temple with 400 years-old murals, and Nuanquan old town, a well-preserved castle, the earthen rampart walls of which remain in some spots. The Nuanquan town still retains the old nothern rural China atmosphere.

One highlight in Yu County is the outdoor performance of the first evening - Da Shu Hua (literally beating tree flowers), a hundreds-year old local tradition that the molten iron are flung against the castle walls to create firework display!

On the second day, we will visit an off-the-beaten track old village and castle in the suburb as well as paper-cutting viliage old temple with murals. The local gala shows and folk performances will be on during the Chinese New Year in and out of the Nuanquan old town.

The Jimingyi,or Cock Crows Post Town in translation, is on the way back to Beijing. But CCC skips it as it is similar to two castles of the trip, and is not authentic compared to the one CCC discovered in the suburb.
