It takes about 2.5 hour drive from the city to Ping'an village, where we start hiking. We will walk uphill by taking the slate-paved steps through the village on the mountainside. A zero-distance look at those wooden and tongue-and-groove structured cottages will leave you an unforgettable memory. What's more, on the way and at the top of the mountain you will see beautiful contour-map-like terraced rice paddies. You also see Zhuang people wearing their costumes, making straw sandal shoes and colorful insoles when walking.
From No.1 viewing platform, take a turn to the right, and the path will lead us to the direction of Dazhai, a famous Yao people's village. In about twenty minutes, a jade-green colored reservoir, which grantees the water resource of the villagers and the rice paddies, appears on our left hand side. Then, an about 2 hour long walk through the pine and fir woods, up and down on the mountains, along the ridge of the rice fields, will guide us to a Yao village, Zhongliu (Middle Six), which is generally considered to be the half way between Ping'an and Dazhai. Right before the village, down to the bottom of the gorge, a running creek with gurgling water is really an ideal place to have a rest and enjoy your brown-bagged meal.
There are still about 2 hours to go after Zhongliu village. You may get bit tired now. But the breathtaking sceneries will definitely reward you. There are more terraced rice paddies, fir tree woods and elegantly standing bamboos all the way along the way. If lucky enough, you may come across Yao people working in the fields. Their wrinkled but friendly faces, rose-red costumes with the green background will be a perfect picture to illustrate the harmony between human and nature.
There will appear a small village named Tiantou before going down to Dazhai. Tiantou is located on the slope of the mid-level and from here you can have a panoramic view around. Keep going downhill, you will see a valley densely dotted by the black-roofed houses. Here comes Dazhai, the destination of our hiking! To wander around in the village to get to know more about Yao people's life, to have a cup of coffee to recharge your energy or to have a foot massage will be the options for you to enjoy the rest time of the day.
