Wuyuan - China's Most Beautiful Village 江西婺源 - 中国最美丽的乡村

Reputed as the "most beautiful village in China", the countryside around Wuyuan in the splendid northeast of Jiangxi province is home to some of China’s most immaculate views. Parcelled away in this fertile and hilly pocket on the fringes of stunning southern Anhui and western Zhejiang is a scattered cluster of picturesque Huizhou villages where old China remains preserved in enticing panoramas of ancient bridges, glittering rivers, emerald green mountains, stone-flagged alleyways,crisscrossing paths between the fields and the slow, meandering pace of traditional rural life.


Wuyuan has become a massively popular destination with domestic tourists in the past few years, but as it's such a large area, it's easy enough to escape the crowds with a little bit of determination. Most of Wuyuan's villages are linked by timeworn postal roads that today provide hikers with the perfect excuse to explore the area's gorgeous backcountry: imagine wild azalea, wisteria, rape flower and isis blooms dotting steep hills cut by cascading streams and you're off to the right start.
