Visiting Pingshan

I want to visit scenic spots.

Typical Hakka’s Building

The Hakka are Han Chinese who speak Hakka Chinese and have links to the provincial areas of Guangdong, Jiangxi and Fujian in China.

The Chinese characters for Hakka literally means "guest families."

The Hakka's ancestors were said to have arrived from what is today's Central China centuries ago and North China thousand years ago. In a series of migrations, the Hakkas moved, settled in their present locations in southern China, and then often migrated overseas to various countries throughout the world.

With worldwide population of about 80 million, Hakka people have had a significant influence on the Chinese and world histories.

Due to their agrarian lifestyle, the Hakka have a unique architecture based on defense and communal living, and a hearty savory cuisine based on an equal balance between meat and fresh vegetable.

A Hakka walled village is a large multi-family communal living structure that is designed to be easily defensible and consists of one entrance and no windows at the ground level.

This building style is unique to the Hakka people in southern China.

Located in central Pingshan, Dawan Ancestral Residence is the largest well-preserved Hakkas’ building in China, which is now a folk museum of Hakka’s culture.

Natural Beauty

Maluan Mountain

Maluan Mountain is extremely popular among avid hikers because it's beautiful and varied, having clear streams, lush woods, Chinese plum blossoms and one of the area's largest waterfalls.

The mountain's paths are unpaved, yet the climb is not strenuous, as the summit is only half the height of Shenzhen's highest peak, Wutong Mountain at less than 1,000 meters.

The summit is accessible from various routes, but the most attractive one is along a stream. The stream is less than half-a-meter deep, with boulders forming natural steps for hikers.
