We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Gaoling Embroider

Gaoling embroider(高陵扎花) is a unique combination of embroidery and fabric in the form of traditional crafts Han and some of its varieties and techniques within the scope of Shaanxi Province are extremely rare. From the study of existing physical shape and content, we can conclude that the earliest Gaoling embroider can be traced back to the Western Han Dynasty. Due to the unique history and location of Gaoling embroider, it has formed two factions: the folk genre and the court genre. Gaoling embroider carries heavy Han traditional culture and national spirit and it is the product of local farming culture.


















Since Gaoling embroider is a set of arts and crafts, painting and practical value, because of long years of baptism, it has formed the characteristics of “each painting has a sense; each sense means auspicious.” Its core content is the prayer of longevity and fortune, and ethical enlightenment.

Gaoling embroider folk genre techniques also have an important role in studying Guanzhong masses’ the way of thinking, value orientation, ethical values, folk customs and aesthetic taste.


















Before the liberation, Gaoling embroider artists spread all over the village and embroider content had a wide range and variety, left many excellent works. During the Cultural Revolution, Gaoling embroider was listed as the "four olds". So it was under attack and embroider team gradually reduced, some of the traditional range of varieties rolled out of people's lives. Due to the continuous development of society, and by modern industrial technology to replace the traditional manual labor, combined with the accelerated pace of modern life, local people were no longer willing to learn both time-consuming and laborious manual embroider skills, leading to today's remaining schools and a number of civil court on behalf of the old art genres of artists cannot be passed along. Gaoling embroider was endangered.
