Across the "Golden Toad Looking at the Moon" Stone grew clusters of Alpine Rhododendron forests. Fifty meters west of the stone, there are several large and flat stones. It is said that Wang Zuo, a good man in Jinggangshan, used to base himself on Xingzhou and Xiazhuang at the foot of Bijia Mountain when he was in the green forest. Bijiashan is their habitual place. On these boulders, Wang Zuo and his troops once sat there to discuss the war and to study how to go down the mountain "hanging sheep". "Hanging sheep" was the kidnapping of local tyrants as hostages at that time, demanding huge sums of money and goods, and then giving money to poor people to solve their living problems in addition to their own military expenditures.

Mao Zedong, Zhu De and Chen Yi have deployed battles here many times to smash the many military "marches" of the Kuomintang reactionaries.

Dajing is located seven kilometers northwest of Ciping. Mao Zedong's old residence and the old site of the Red Army Medical Center are the places to visit the revolutionary history. In late October 1927, Mao Zedong led the Chinese revolutionary army of workers and peasants to Jinggangshan, where they first arrived.

Five outposts in the revolutionary battlefield are not far from Ciping, and there are five highways accessible. The Yellow Ocean boundary of the five major outposts, 1343 meters above sea level, is situated at a high elevation and inhabits the mountain pass. The situation is dangerous. The local people call it the Skyscraper Mountains. At that time, the outpost works and the uphill road were still vaguely visible, and the Red Army barracks were well preserved. There is a monument to the victory of the defence of the Yellow Ocean Frontier. The inscription is written by Zhu De. On the other hand, Mao Zedong's "Xijiang Yue Jinggangshan" is engraved. There is a marble screen in front of the tablet, and there are three golden characters on it.

It is one of the most famous outposts in the five ports of Jinggangshan Mountains (Shuangmashi, Tongmuling, Zhushachong, Bamianshan and Huangyang boundary). It connects the Hunan-Jiangxi border. The Huangyang boundary is dangerous and majestic. On August 30, 1928, the famous Huangyang Ocean was sounded here. In the border defense war, the Red Army of Workers and Peasants of China withdrew the mad attack of the enemy's four regiments with less than one battalion of troops, creating its first record of winning more with less. Comrade Mao Zedong, in his delight, wrote "Xijiang Moon Jinggangshan".

The Rhododendron Hill is 35 kilometers southwest of Ciping and 1357 meters above sea level. It mainly consists of three peaks: mid-peak (Yangmei peak), West Peak (Wangzhi peak) and East Peak (Guandao peak). Far sight is like an ancient penholder, so it is called Bijiashan.


Every spring, Jinggangshan ushers in the flowering season of azaleas. There are many kinds of Rhododendron in Jinggang Mountain, including Yunjin Rhododendron, Antler Rhododendron, Monkey Head Rhododendron and so on. Among them, the most famous one is the unique rare tree species "Jinggangshan Rhododendron".

Jinggangshan National Nature Reserve has been accepted by UNESCO as a member of the World Biosphere Reserve Network, and has become the only World Biosphere Reserve in Jiangxi Province.

 Name origin

The name "Jinggangshan" originated from a local saying that in the early years of the Qing Dynasty, a man named Zixi, named Lan, migrated to a small flat under Wuzhifeng Peak to set up a stockade in order to avoid war. Because it is surrounded by mountains, the terrain looks like a well; a small stream flows past the village, and the visitors call the stream "Jiang", hence the name "Jing Jiang". Because the village is built along the mountain to the river, it is also called Jingjiang Mountain Village. Later, because of the homonym of "Jiang" and "Gang" in the Hakka accent, the village was also called "Jinggangshan Village". Later, Huang moved to this place. After living for a period of time, he felt that the village was not built on the hilltop, but at the foot of the hill. He removed the word "hill" from the word "Jinggangshan village", and called it "Jinggangshan village". So there is the place name "Jinggangshan". Wuzhi Peak is also known as "the main peak of Jinggangshan".

Red Culture

In October 1927, Mao Zedong, Zhu De, Chen Yi, Peng Dehuai, Teng Daiyuan and other older generations of proletarian revolutionaries led the Red Army of Chinese workers and peasants to Jinggangshan to create the first rural revolutionary base area in China with Ninggang County as the center, and opened up a revolutionary road with Chinese characteristics of "encircling cities with countryside and seizing power by armed forces". Since then, the little-known Jinggangshan Mountains have been recorded in the glorious history of the Chinese revolution, known as "the cradle of the Chinese revolution" and "the cornerstone of the People's Republic of China". From October 1927 to February 1930, the struggle in Jinggangshan lasted for two years and four months. Although it was not long, it opened up a successful road for China, leaving behind precious spiritual wealth for future generations, namely, Jinggangshan Spirit, firm faith and dare to break new paths. Its essence is: Firstly, firm ideals and beliefs; secondly, the ideological line of seeking truth from facts; thirdly, the basic principle of the Party's management of armed forces; fourthly, the flesh-and-blood relationship between cadres; fifthly, the entrepreneurial spirit of arduous struggle. Up to now, there are more than 100 well-preserved sites of the struggle and revolution in Jinggangshan, 21 of which are listed as key cultural relics protection units in China. Six are listed as provincial key cultural relics protection units, and 35 are listed as civilized protection units at the municipal level. Therefore, as one of the demonstration bases of patriotism education in China, Jinggangshan has become an ideal classroom for revolutionary traditional education and patriotism education. Jiang Zemin, Hu Jintao, Li Keqiang and other party and state leaders went to Jinggangshan to commemorate the great achievements of the older generation of proletarian revolutionaries.

Spiritual biography

In the annals of the Chinese revolution and the history of the PLA's army building, Jinggangshan occupies an extremely important position. Mao Zedong and his comrades-in-arms in the struggle to open up the Jinggangshan base area, through hard practice, have found the right way to "encircle the city in the countryside and seize power by armed forces"; have clearly defined the important system of "building branches in the company" and "carrying out three major tasks"; have formulated the "three major disciplines and six major disciplines" that the people's army must abide by. Note. The latter "Three Disciplines and Six Attentions" has been enriched and perfected into "Three Disciplines and Eight Attentions", and is still the operational criterion for every member of the Chinese People's Liberation Army. However, due to various reasons, the literature left behind by the Jinggangshan struggle is not much, and the memory articles written by the witnesses are not much. This makes the record of Jinggangshan relatively thin, especially the lack of lively, vivid and flesh-and-blood plot. In view of this, more than 90 people, such as Chen Haosu, the son of Chen Yi, Luo Ronghuan, Peng Gang, Su Rongsheng, Huang Kecheng and Tan Jingxian, the son of Tan Zheng, agreed to write their own essays to record the experiences of their predecessors in Jinggangshan and attach them to their family treasures. The pictures collected for many years are combined into a picture biography of Jinggang Feelings, which is published by the Central Literature Publishing House.

In addition to the descendants of the founding fathers and generals, the writers of Jinggang Feelings also include the relatives of the martyrs who died in Jinggang Mountain or were wrongly killed in Jinggang Mountain. Including Chen Yian's son, He Tingying's nephew, Wang Zuo, Yuan Wencai's great grandson and grandson, etc. "Firm faith, arduous struggle, seeking truth from facts, daring to break new paths, relying on the masses and daring to win". The painting biography of Jinggangshan Feelings annotates the spirit of Jinggangshan with a series of experiences and stories.

Safety matters

Jinggangshan is already a very mature scenic spot, but when you go out, you still need to pay more attention, always remember that safety is the first.

1. Oxygen is plentiful in the mountains and there are many old dead branches and rotten leaves. Please do not smoke or cook or make bonfires in the scenic spots, so as to avoid forest fires.

2. High mountains and steep roads. It is better to travel slowly and not to overspeed. For the sake of safety, we must "walk without looking at the scenery, see without walking". It's dangerous to walk and watch.

3. When climbing a mountain, you can bend forward slightly and walk in the "Z" shape. This is both labor-saving and relaxing.

4. When swimming in summer in Shuikou and Longtan Waterfalls, do not swim in the water. First, swimming is forbidden. Second, the mountains and rivers are extremely cool and dangerous.
