In the Wulong Mountains of Chongqing, Huolu (“stove” in Chinese) Town sits here with a torrid name but delightfully cool temperature. With its forest sea, deep valley, karst cave, and waterfall, Huolu Town, as an attraction on the exclusive travel line of Fairy Mountain, remains a primitive and mysterious atmosphere.
This town got its name from the stony stove built at its edge. Here, the Wanfeng Forest Sea occupying about 47 square kilometers is noteworthy. In the forest sea, a hundred-meter footpath for cycling awaits your wandering around the trees on bikes. If you do not know how to ride a bike, strolling is also a good option.
Paddling at mysterious valley
In the valley, paddling and having fun near the water with friends is quite pleasant.
The precipice also appears peculiar, standing at two sides of the valley, thanks to the secret workings of nature. Walking in the valley, you can have a feast for eyes for the surprisingly beautiful scenery and, without excellent shooting skills, plenty of fantastic photos.
Affordable delicacy at farm stays
The farm stays in Huolu Town, mostly hide in the mountains filled with greenery. Almost all the families here own farm stays, which provide excellent services and low prices. Besides, it also enjoys the reputation of being the “home of chevon hot pot.” Those farm stays offer the well-known “chevon bowls” cooked with the local chevon produced in Fairy Mountain. Fresh and tender in texture and bright in color, the chevon tastes better with locally-made condiment and sauce than other ways to eat.
It is worth mentioning that Huolu Town is taking action in improving the attraction. Speed skating in midair, iron rope bridge walking, and the “Treading on Thin Strings” are part of the exciting midair activities you can try if you are daring enough.
