Shuiyu: Definitely Out of the City (2)

(CRI Online)

11:17, September 25, 2012

This sign should allay any doubts as to whether you have arrived at the right place. (CRIENGLISH.com/William wang)

Shuiyu may be virtually unknown compared to other recreational Fangshan District spots such as Shidu (Ten Crossings) or Zhoukoudian (Peking Man site), nor is it the sort of place that will flesh out a long itinerary. What it does lend itself to is a day whiling away the hours fishing in the Yudao River or walking around until you find a trail that wanders up a grassy hill. The grassy hills morph into grassy mountains with glorious views of other grassy hills morphing into grassy mountains.

Just a few minutes of hiking will reveal how drastically the scales have tipped regarding the ratio of concrete to green space since leaving the city centre. Persimmons, dates, chestnuts and walnuts mix in with the forests, covering three quarters of the landscape with luscious greenery. Chunks of the town float in the swirl of green like tea leaves refusing to sink.
