If you are seeking for somewhere to clear your thoughts, the bamboo forest in Anji will be the perfect destination. Covering a total area of 60,000 hectares, a curtain of greenness stretches on infinitely. When you breathe in the fresh, cool breeze, you experience a soothing, purifying effect. As you venture deeper into the woods, you will hear the water currents in streams which eventually escalate and combine to form a powerful surge of waterfall. Continue the journey, and you will find yourself somewhere in Shangri-La, bewitched by nature’s charms. During sunrise, the Anji bamboo sea is concealed by light fog, appearing extraordinarily beautiful. Image Source: Google From: World.nzlife.nz
