The leader of the base said that the Health Festival of Dendrobium mainly aims to help the residents knowing more about the Dendrobium, walking into the Madame Mountain and understanding the original ecology of Lishui.

Located in the northwest of Liandu District, Lishui, the Huangcun Village along Liancheng street, is 20 kilometers away from the city. It can be arrived about 20 minutes by driving. Dendrobium candidum, the ‘Fairy grass in the mountains’, is attached to the original forest on Furen hill and absorbs the spring water flowing down from the Longtan waterfall. It takes in the essence of the sun and the moon. In order not to waste the forest resources, the base also uses the understory space to carry out the combination of planting and breeding, and the ‘planting’ refers to the interplanting of valuable Chinese medicinal materials, such as radix tetrastigme, lophantherum gracile, etc. ‘Breeding’ refers to the introduction of peacocks, native chickens and Australian emu (ostrich), which also build up the leisure and entertainment activities of tourists.
In addition, after the environmental transformation and upgrading of the village, Liandu district now has the first European-style hostel with a pure European romantic theme. It can provide 108 rooms, 160 beds, more than 1000 meals, and rental electric cars, public parking, and public WiFi coverage. Besides, other public facilities are also finished last year. Last year, it was awarded the honorary title of Zhejiang Traditional Chinese medicine culture health preservation tourism demonstration base and Zhejiang Provincial forest people characteristic village. It is indeed a good place for healthcare, leisure, and entertainment for Lishui people.( Liandu District Government Office )
