In the heart of Jinping County, Yunnan Province, lies a hidden gem – Biaoshuiyan Village, a testament to China's commitment to rural development. My journey to this remote haven, facilitated by Mfa China and Sun Sen, vice mayor of Jinping County, was a dream come true. Little did I know that this quaint village would unfold a captivating narrative of cultural diversity, natural wonders, and a community-driven vision for sustainable progress.
Biaoshuiyan Village nestled under the jurisdiction of Zhongzhai Village Committee in Ma'andi Township, embodies the spirit of unity among the Hani, Yi, and Han ethnic groups. The village, with its 73 households and 307 inhabitants, stands as a living canvas showcasing the "hometown of longevity" and the "natural nurturing bar."
At the heart of Biaoshuiyan Village, the Biaoshuiyan Waterfall cascades majestically from a 262-meter-high mountain, forming a breathtaking spectacle. The village, surrounded by the Honghe Butterfly Valley, captivates with its fusion of agricultural culture, terraced fields, and butterfly culture.
In 2021, Jinping County invested 72.9127 million yuan to transform Biaoshuiyan Village into a modern and happy community. This initiative aimed at preserving and promoting the village's rich cultural tapestry. The construction included a mushroom house cluster homestay, a Chinese national community consciousness theme square, and vital infrastructure like parking lots, public toilets, lighting, communication, and sewage engineering.
The commitment to ecological sustainability is evident in the village's development strategy. By prioritizing green practices and ecological development, the village has successfully engaged professional cooperatives and farmers. Through tourism initiatives such as homestays, banquets, and ecological agricultural products, Biaoshuiyan Village welcomes over 20,000 tourists annually, generating more than 1 million yuan in tourism income.
During my visit, the warmth and hospitality of the locals left an indelible mark. The diverse ethnic groups collaborated to present mesmerizing dance performances, showcasing the richness of their cultural heritage. The experience was not just picturesque; it was a genuine celebration of community spirit and shared aspirations.
In conclusion, Biaoshuiyan Village stands as a living testament to President Xi's vision of ecological harmony and rural rejuvenation. Jinping County's commitment to sustainable development, cultural preservation, and community engagement echoes the broader aspirations outlined in President Xi's vision for a harmonious and prosperous China. Biaoshuiyan Village, with its vibrant blend of tradition and progress, exemplifies the remarkable strides made towards realizing this vision in the heart of Yunnan Province.
