Huangling Culture : The outstanding feature of this village is “Dry Crops In Autumn”. From ancient China to the present day, people like to dry the whole year's produce in the sunlight in order to preserve it. Because of the moist and drizzly climate, this situation often appears in southern China, especially in Jiangxi and Hunan Provinces. During the period of late summer and early autumn, corns or chilies are laid on the roofs of these ancient residences. The whole village is covered with a colorful patchwork quilt.
