Rich Verdure of Lingyan – An Unforgotten Treasure Nestling Quietly Amidst the Hills

Nestling amidst the gentle peaks of the mighty mountains, bravely facing the changing moods of time, lies majestically the Rich Verdure of Lingyan, dreaming of the better days many many years ago. Deserted by the folk of its time, the Rich Verdure of Lingyan has only the mournfully howling winds that sweep across its structures now. But the view upon which she gazes is just as beautiful, just as breathtakingly lovely as it was in those golden days when life happened within and glory crowned the treasured structure.

Spring, summer, autumn and winter bring shades of loveliness of varying degrees to the backdrop of the Rich Verdure of Lingyan. Emerald sheen glistens in the mountain tops in the beautiful spring and flowers that have stolen the colours of the rainbow dot the mountains as they sway in the perfumed summer wind. Red sheets of terrestrial glory fall gently down from the trees, like preserved old sunshine, in the autumn, and pure white winter snow cover the scene in surreal beauty in the cold months that follow. The entire setting is amazingly breathtaking, in all its changing moods and facets. However one is advised to visit the Rich Verdure in the dry months of spring and autumn to witness the best of the masterpieces of nature.

The Rich Verdure of Lingyan is one of the ten major sights of the Emei Mountain. In the north the rising peaks of Wanfo, Qianfo and Golden mountains loom large like the guardian companions of this ancient wonder of man. This place holds much more that scenic beauty to the people of China. It is said that this is the place where Zen Master Bao Zhang resided and received grants by each Emperor of the ancient China.

If you are planning to visit the Rich Verdure of Lingyan to witness a glimpse of the grandeur of ancient China, now hidden beneath the pages of time, you may want to consider staying at a centrally located Sichuan hotel such as Anantara Emei Resort & Spa, China. It is one of the leading Emeishan hotels that offer luxury and opulence, truly sublime and lets you experience the stunning beauty of this enchanting location.
