Abandoned old factories in the depths of the Qinling Mountains in Xi’an, and broken windows, people go to the empty buildings. Why do tourists come here in admiration?


This is Xiao Yu’s travel diary, stop and go, and watch Xi’an with me. I have walked the Qinling Mountains more often, and I have encountered many abandoned houses in the Qinling Mountains. Some of them are factory buildings and some are old houses. Although they are now deserted, they have discovered one story after another. Most of these abandoned houses were accidentally encountered while walking in the Qinling Mountains. But this time, we made a special drive to an abandoned old factory in the Qinling Mountains, just to find a thousand-year-old tree. ps: The stories of those abandoned Qinling houses: Explore the uninhabited village of Qinling in Xi’an, the scenery is beautiful, but there is no one in the village The mysterious yard deep in the Qinling Mountains of Shaanxi was once a ruined factory dormitory, destined to have an extraordinary experience This abandoned old factory is located in Baijiaping Village, Wangchuan Town, Lantian County. It was originally the No. 14 factory compound of Xiangyang Company. Xiangyang Company is now the Fourth Research Institute (Siyi Research Institute) of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation. After moving to Tianhong Street, Baqiao District, Xi’an in the early 1990s, the original old factory building was completely abandoned. Time has moved forward for more than a thousand years, and this land is where the Luyuan Temple in the Tang Dynasty is located. The great poet Wang Wei planted a ginkgo tree here, which is still lush and lush. The Luyuan Temple has disappeared, and the old factory building has been abandoned. Only it is stationed here, witnessing the time… Wangchuan is a river in the northern foothills of the Qinling Mountains, more than 10 kilometers southeast of Lantian County. It is located in the valley between the Yaoshan Mountains in the Qinling Mountains. The name Wangchuan in the Tang Dynasty has been preserved to this day. The mountain stream here has many small streams gathering here, shaped like wheels, hence the name Wangchuan. In ancient times, this place was the only place to pass through Guanzhong to Chu, and it was close to the “Languan Ancient Road” and was known as “the key point of Qin and Chu and the barrier of the three supplements.” Wangchuan, surrounded by mountains and rivers, is also a scenic spot for dignitaries, scribes, and savorers. It is known as the “Zhonglantian, the best of South China, and Wangchuan for those who thrive.” The great poet Wang Wei took a fancy to Wangchuan, bought his friend Song Zhiwen’s villa in Zhongnan Mountain, and built his own “Wangchuan Other Industry”. Wang Wei’s love for Wangchuan has condensed into the famous “Mangchuan Collection”. Those poems that have been passed down for thousands of years have also made the mountains and rivers of Wangchuan enter the hearts of many visitors. Wangchuan Bieye has disappeared, and Wang Wei’s tomb is nowhere to be found. As a result, this ginkgo plant of more than 1,200 years has placed too many emotions on it, and it has become a must-see place for tourists to come to Lantian Wangchuan. The ancient tree is not far from the Wangchuan Expressway, but there is no obvious sign. It took us a lot of setbacks to find it. Unexpectedly, it is not the most beautiful ginkgo season, and it also attracts many tourists by car. This Wang Wei hand-planted ginkgo tree is 20 meters high and has a chest circumference of 5.2 meters. The tree is more than 1,200 years old. It is now a first-class protected ancient tree. Standing under the tree and looking up, I only feel that it is lush and covered with pavilions, full of vitality. The ginkgo and the abandoned factory buildings set against each other, giving birth to a sort of blending of ancient and modern. Time goes by, the vicissitudes of life, the ancient trees can survive to this day, it is also fortunate. Finally, I will talk about some useful travel information, friends who want to come can refer to: 1.
