Undulating in the autumn breeze, green bamboos thrive in the hills and mountains of Anji County. The lush bamboo forest has even attracted director Ang Lee, who shot some scenes from his Academy Award winning film “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” in the county.

The forest is in Wuhe Village of Tianhuangping Town. There’s a spring well named Wunu, which in Chinese means five girls, at the forest’s entrance.

It is said that in ancient times a drought hit Anji.

In order to irrigate the forest, five girls dug a well.

The water from the well tastes a bit sweet and locals love drinking it with Anji white tea leaves.

How to get there: 

Shanghai-Chongqing Expressway — Shanghai-Jiangsu-Zhejiang Expressway — Hangzhou-Changxing Expressway — Anji
