Three day tomb-sweeping escapes

清明扫墓的那三天

          没有城管的世外桃源:灵山的连绵起伏的山脉

By Yin Yeping

The Tomb Sweeping Festival is not only an occasion to commemorate death, but a happy break for those who remain alive. Apart from the obligatory visitation of the burial grounds of deceased family and friends, having a good plan for the break is also necessary. Lifestyle has advice for those who need a simple, short-term escape from the city.

 

清明节不仅仅只是祭悼先者的节日,也是我们难得的一个休息的假期。除了履行我们作为活者的义务——去祭祖之外,我们也需要对这个小小的假期做个好规划。对于那些追求远离城市的简单的短期旅途的人来说,以下所推荐的景点不失为一种选择。

 

Hongluo Temple

红螺寺

 

If you want to find a place to relax and have no intention of exhausting yourself with physical exercise, during your vacation, you may wish to consider Hongluo Temple. Located in Huairou district, 55 miles from Beijing, the temple grounds occupy around 800 hectares, making it the biggest Buddhist forest in northern China. The temple was originally built by a monk named Fo Tudeng in 338 AD, the first acknowledged teacher of Buddhism in China.

如果你想要找一个地方好好放松下身心,并且不想在旅途中奔波的话,可以考虑去红螺寺。位于距北京城55英里的怀柔区,红螺寺占地800公顷,是中国北方最大的佛寺庙。这座寺庙最初是由一位名叫佛图澄的高僧在公元338年建成的,他也是中国的佛学的第一代宗师。

 

Now the temple has become one of the most popular national scenic spots; visitors include the emperor Kang Xi, who stopped by during his travels in 1694. The temple is also an ideal Qingming escape because here one can burn joss sticks at the altar in tribute to the deceased. Within the temple, visitors can appreciate the soothing atmosphere of birds singing, streams flowing and flower blossoming; don't forget to pause and appreciate the wisteria growing here has blossomed every year, for 800 years, in April. For more flowers, step out to Hongluo Mountain to the north, where lilacs, roses and peonies flourish.

如今这座寺庙已经成为国内最热门的旅游景点之一;1694年,康熙帝也曾在这里驻足过。红螺寺也是一个理想的清明祭祀的地方,在这里你可以在祭坛上烧香来祭拜先者。在寺内,游客们也可以享受充满鸟语的怡人环境,聆听泉水潺潺的叮咚声,以及欣赏花开的灿烂美景。千万别忘了停下来观赏已经盛开的紫藤花。800多年的时光里,紫藤花每年四月都会绽放。如果想要观赏到更多的姹紫嫣红,那你就得移步红螺山的北部,那里紫丁香,月季,芍药正在争芳斗艳呢!

Ling Mountain

灵山

For mountain hiking fans who do want to take the chance to get off their bums, the holiday is a good chance to head for Ling Mountain in the western suburbs of the city. Located at the northwestern side of Mentougou, it is 122 kilometers away from the city center. Ling Mountain is the highest in Beijing's vicinity, at 2,303 meters, and is home to up to 1,000 types of wild plants, making it a paradise for animals such as peccary, rabbits, fox, goats and domesticated yak.

对于那些不想再游荡流浪的登山爱好者来说,这个假期,去北京西郊的灵山就是一个不错的选择。位于门头沟的西北部,灵山距市中心大概有122公里。它是北京附近最高的山,高达2,303米,而且有1000多种野生植物。因此它也是小动物们的乐园。野猪,兔子,狐狸,山羊以及驯养的牦牛都在这里安居。

 

Ling Mountain is also abundant with old historical remains like broken cave temples and beacon towers, making it great for exploring. With everything from these historical remains to plants that grow in both tropical and fridge zones, this mountain is like a museum of natural history, luring campers who like to call the area "little Tibet." Take note, however: this adventurers' paradise is also fraught with risks, and every year climbers lose their way and die of hypothermia or expo-sure. Be careful, or it'll be your grave they're sweeping next year.

灵山也有很多历史遗迹,比如有些破损的岩洞寺庙以及灯塔,因此很具有探险意义。无论从古迹还是生长于热带和寒带的野生植物来说,灵山简直就是一座自然的历史博物馆,吸引着无数露营者,他们称这个小地方为“小西藏”。但是,注意:对于探险者们来说,这里也潜伏着很多危险,每年都有很多露营者迷路后死于低体温症等。一定要很小心,不然这里将会成为你的坟墓,明年将有其他人为你扫墓。

Shuanglongshan forest park

双龙山森林公园

If the Ling Mountain is too wild and Hong Luo Temple too "popular," the natural middle ground can be found at Shuanglongshan forest park, Changping District, 50 miles from the city center. Get close to nature while enjoying a variety of activities, including fruit and vegetable picking in the eco-environmental center and learning from guides how to survive in the wilderness.

如果觉得灵山太荒凉而红螺寺太热门了,那么折中的方案可以选择位于昌平区的双龙山森林公园。它距市中心有50英里。除了感受多种多样的活动,如在生态地中心摘蔬果以及跟导游学野地生存技巧等外,我们也能跟大自然来个亲密接触。

 

For something you generally cannot do within the city limits, go chase a mountain chicken (an actual activity) at one of the local chicken farms in an amusing diversion to get slackers to shake a leg and get some exercise. If chasing birds is too active for you, how about collecting their eggs? These particular chickens subsist on bugs and worms they find in the mountains, rather than chickenfeed; as a result, their eggs appear greener than what you'd pick up in the grocery store.

基于城市限制而不能完成的事情,比如在一个当地的养鸡场追捕一只山鸡,通过一种娱乐的方式来让这群懒虫们舒活舒活筋骨。如果觉得捕鸟运动对你来说太剧烈的话,来集蛋怎么样?这群特别的小鸡主要靠他们在山上找到的蠕虫和臭虫来生存。因此,他们的蛋看起来比你在杂货店里买到的要绿一些。

 

There's nothing like pursuing wild fowl to rally the appetite, so at the end of the day, tuck into appetizing farmhouse dishes served in the Shuanglongshan folk-custom vacation village, made with local mountain ingredients. It may be basic fare, but for urbanites who subsist on greasy food every day, a healthy change is a big holiday pursuit indeed.

没有什么比捕捉野生飞禽更能吊胃口了,因此一天的旅程结束后,在双龙山民俗度假村里,你可以大口地品尝那些美味的农家小食。这也许只是基本费用,但是对于那些吃多了油腻食物的都市人来说,一次健康的改变,也是旅途中最大的追求了。
