Imagine a place where you can wake up to the sight of clouds and mountains, enjoy the fresh and organic produce of the land and immerse yourself in the tranquility and beauty of nature. The Yungu Shanfang Hostel – its customers say – can make that happen.

It's a secluded resort tucked away in the terraced fields of Yunhe county in Lishui city, in East China's Zhejiang province.

The place is located in Kenggen, an ancient village that has been home to generations of mountain dwellers for nearly a thousand years. The village, at an altitude of about 800 meters, is surrounded by towering peaks and verdant bamboo forests, creating serene and idyllic scenery.

Yungu Shanfang Hostel consists of two main buildings that blend in with the natural landscape. The rooms are decorated with warm and cozy design elements, such as wood furniture and white and yellow-colored decor and furnishments.

Each room has a private balcony and a large glass window, where guests can enjoy panoramic views of the terraced fields and bamboo forest.

The resort's restaurant serves fresh and organic ingredients from its own fields, such as eggplants, pumpkins and other vegetables and fruit. The dishes are delicious and flavorful, reflecting the unique taste of the mountain region.

Besides the resort, there are also other attractions nearby, such as a bar,  tearoom, cafe, wood workshop and a bookstore. Put simply, it's the perfect place to experience the charms and tranquility of rural life.
