The Father of the World Cypress in Huangling

 2012-08-06    CTA    Sights    Huangling    454  

To be honest, when I turned my spotlight on the old cypress at the First Qin Emperor, I just wanted to look for a different perspective and shoot things from others, but not very clear to its illustrious reputation.

When I came back and checked the information on the Internet, I found that many of these ancient cypresses are the originators of cypress.

This tree seems called Dragon Angle Cypress. Look a bit interesting. It is said that there are more than eighty thousand ancient cypresses in Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor, among of which more than three thousand ancient cypresses are listed to be special protected. Whether in age and in the number, this ancient cypress group can be ranked No.1 in the world.


The tree is absolutely the protagonist, because it is said that it was planted by the Yellow Emperor. According to legend, Yellow Emperor Xuanyuan personally planted 4,000 years ago, and is the world's most ancient cypress tree. Hence, some one said that this cypress is the largest one in China, also known as the “King” of cypress. Some International cypress experts call it as the father of the World cypresses.


The well-known unique Guajia cypress is said to be the place to store the armor for the Han Emperor Wu returned from the North.


The Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor is undoubtedly a good place. There are green ancient cypresses all the year around, lush, and in stark contrast with the surrounding Loess Plateau.


No matter whether it looks cool or not, this is old and valuable trees.
