Not far from the village of Bajie, there are old trees that make this site mystical landscape. This ten acre forest is composed primarily of cypress trees, hence the name was given to the site, Giant Cypress Forest. This dense, primeval forest is very impressive and pleasant destination for travelers: under towering trees with an average height of 30 meter-high and a circumference of a meter! Nicknamed living fossils, trees grow here are extremely old. Moreover, we can find the oldest cypress in China, which dates back to more than 2,000 years ago! It is 50 meters tall and measures nearly 6 feet in circumference! This giant cypress of the forest will amaze you! But in this forest, we also see other trees and plants in amazing proportions. These treasures of greenery are worthy of appreciation, especially at the time of flowering, the scents and colors that illuminate the paths are so wonderful.
