A Brief Introduction of Changde

Changde is located in the northwest of Hunan Province, 150 km northwest of the capital city Changsha and to the west is Zhangjiajie (195 km) and to the east is the broad Dongtighu Plain. Changde was called Wuling and Dingzhou in ancient times.

With abundant products and beautiful natural scenery, Changde is "a land of fish and rice" and an interesting place for tourists. Major scenic spots are the Taohuayuan (the Land of Peach Blossoms) and the Jiashan Temple.

Taohuayuan: It is located in Taoyuan County and is 23 km away from Chagde. The temples here were built in the 10th century. During the reign of Guangxu (1875-1908) of the Qing Dynasty, a scenic spot was formed according to "On the Land of Peach Blossoms" written by Tao Yuanming, a famous writer of the Jin Dynasty (265-420 AD). The tourism area today is composed of four parts: The Taohua Mountain, the Taohualing Hill, the Taoyuan Mountrin and the Qinren Village.
