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.

The Legend of a Cold Cave

The legend of a cold cave(寒窑传说) is an important part of Xi’an culture. In the southern suburbs of Xi'an, there is a well-known relic’s park, named Qujiang Cold Cave Ruins Park. The Heritage Park is built due to the story of "The Legend of a Cold Cave". "Cold Cave Legend" is a poignant love story, which illustrated the daughter of the Tang Dynasty Prime Minister Wang Yun, Wang Baochuan was faithful for love. The legend has been circulating for more than 1,000 years.


















Tang Dynasty Prime Minister Wang Yun had no sons, but only three daughters and Wang Baochuan was the youngest daughter. Her two sisters were matched for marriage, so her parents also want to looked for a good young man for little girl.

At that time, the south of Chang’an city had beautiful scenery and many people went for a walk in the country in spring, so did Wang Baochuan. One day, when Wang Baochuan had an outing in spring with several servants, she was in a tangle with several romantic childes. A poor young man named Xue Rengui was fed up with this phenomenon and he rebuked the childes. Wang Baochuan was deeply impressed by upholding justice of this poor young man. In view of Wang Baochuan, although the young man was poor, he was not only highly cultured and steeped in propriety, but also highly skilled in military drill. And the poor young man knew that Wang Baochuan was the daughter of the prime minister through talking. Xue Rengui was impressed by the beauty and good manner of Wang Baochuan, but he knew that they were not well matched. When they say goodbye to each other in sunset, they were both reluctant to let go.


















Before long, the prime minister hurried Wang Baochuan into an engagement. On a sudden inspiration, Wang Baochuan thought the idea of choosing a husband by throwing an embroidered ball. Wang Baochuan thought that Xue Pinggui must would come if he knew the news. On that day, Xue Pinggui come as expected and Wang Baochuan threw the ball into the arms of him. But the Wang’s farther was not satisfied with Xue Pinggui. However, Wang Baochuan made up her mind and moved out with Xue Pinggui.

The young couple lived a happy life in the cold cave. However, rebellion occurred in the border areas and the rebel army occupied many places. Then Xue Rengui joined the government’s army for 18 years. And Wang Baochuan had waited him for 18 years in the cold cave.

Although there is no record of this story on historical data, but Wang Baochuan was loyal to love, and unchanged in 18 years. She fully display ancient Chinese working women industrious, brave, honest, loyal noble sentiments, and thus subject to the majority of working people compassion and love, and pass down from generation to generation. In June 2011, cold cave legend was included in Shaanxi Province selected third intangible cultural heritage and in December 2011, recorded in the third installment of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Xi'an selected representative projects list.
