Since then, many photography and painters come here for shooting and sketching. 

There is no courtyard, no pavilion, no cultural relics, no ancient buildings and cultural History, but still without losing the natural simplicity of beautiful landscape. The connotation of the landscape is still very deep, so that experts and scholars love it at the first sight. 

Setting foot on the land of Lin Keng, you will feel as if entered into agricultural civilization and found that you've stepped into another time mirror: the narrow valley between roofs of gray tiles, bridges, smoke, all around cascading green hills. The village was wrapped like drum, only leaving the gap into the village.

Sanya Wuzhi Mountain is not very high, nor forceful, but the momentum is extraordinary; stream splash, it is really a school of island tropical rain forest scenery. Here the green shade with thick trees, mountains of towering trees, thick branches and leaves, and even entangled with many climbing plants. Walking in the forest, people won’t fell the summer heat, only the cool breeze, very comfortable!







Coconut stands for Hainan, while betel nut stands for the Li Ethnic Group, a ceremony can not without betel nut, and a wedding cannot without betel nut. Li Ethnic Group lives in the mountains of central Hainan, shelter to the original mystery rainforest. Only walk into the Betel Valley, you can say you have been Li Ethnic Group, and only walk into this mysterious rain forest, you can feel the authentic ethnic customs. 



Betel Valley is the true sense of a gathering place of local culture in Hainan. Everything is authentic Hainan taste. The significant feature of local residents is facial tattooing and wearing large earrings in the ears. Visitors can see people in the Betel Valley have these basic features, which have become a precious cultural landscape.


The most representative are the Li traditional textile dyeing embroidery skills and Li Ethnic Group embroidered face tattooing. Li brocade is the most proud of Li people, exquisite designs, colorful and enjoy reputation home and abroad.




I made a tour to Ganshi Li Village, Betel Valley, and happen to attend an original Li wedding, blessing this couple's conjugal bliss.


Li Ethnic Group’s folk traditional bamboo instrument playing musicians stood on both sides of in the aisle playing music “Wedding Song”, in order to meet the wedding escorting team, and then led the team into the village while playing the music. 


An elder of the Li Ethnic Group prayed and held a simple ceremony of crossing the fire. 




Wedding escorting team put the betrothal gifts in front of the house, or beside the well, the house is placed with tables, benches, dishes, etc. An altar was placed in the center of the room, usually placed near the stove. 




The wedding was in the joyful atmosphere, and soon it was time for the couple toast. Toast has specific practices, each table banquet of people should selected two most distinguished guests to toast wine to the bride and groom, what’s more, they should sing folk songs, drink wedlock, and the atmosphere is very warm. 





The bustling of the wedding banquet reflected the locals’ love of life and unique style of wedding scene.
