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.

Mount Li Nvwa Custom

After the Nvwa frog totem brought to light, as a living history of the plant - Lishan Nvwa customs(骊山女娲风俗) began to receive unprecedented attention, we note that the myths and legends about the Nvwa recorded in ancient classics almost all can find in this treasure-house. Some of the amused Lishan customs are related to memorial to Nvwa, some are the frog totem worship, while others are the conventions which have been passed on till today.


















The first category is the memorial to Nvwa’s immortal works. In the 20th of the first lunar month, people who live near Lishan Mountain, Lintong and Lantian area would "repair the sky and the earth". In southeast towns, the festival were called "Queen's Day ". Some elderly people ofteh called it as the "Nuwa’s birthday." Festive activities are eating "repair sky cake,” and different villages have different customs in this day. There are stalls baked pancake batter, hard surface open bar pancakes, steamed pancakes, whose general requirement is circular and thin pages. There would also simple ceremony before meals held by the housewife or grandmother as tore bread and thrown it into the sky which symbolizes repair the sky, and then threw it well or put on the ground, called "repair the land".

The second category is festival rituals and frog totem worship. During spring festival, the married daughters would bring buns, longevity lamp and her own child to her parents’ house to celebrate the festival. To send the longevity lamp was derived from the story that people take fire from the fire hole, when people master the technology of using fire in primitive society. Fire is a symbol of life, a symbol of light, is a sign of the future and happiness.


















The third category is Lishan Marriage and life style habits. In sound of the drums, before the bride sedan car breaks there is a pair of embroidered bellyband purported protection as protective talisman and dowry. The old man said it was the new wife's safe guard, as if to declare "female empress in this crucible, a hundred God give way" in order to ensure good luck wedding. Of course, that is the symbol of new wife pin tough effort from which the aunts can distinguish the embroidery skill of the new wife.

Finally, we would also like to mention Nuwa in human clothing custom performance again. In folk paintings "lotus Lovely Baby" "More than Auspicious" and other works in the tradition of body fat baby wear a bellyband. And the children really left a deep impression to the people, and indeed people from the mother quack onto the ground, the first thing he wear is a bellyband; during childhood, the grandparents would send bellyband to children every year; marriage gift, and finally passed away, go back to the other side also stressed to give the deceased put on a bellyband. I am afraid it is more important than any other clothes. As for enlightenment in human civilization, to promote awareness of the germination growth of civilization, the bellyband undoubtedly played an important role.
