Tǎchuān is a favourite among photographers, especially in the early spring, when the rapeseed blooms, and in the autumn, when the leaves of the old-growth trees turn vivid colours. Year-round you can stroll the flagstone walking path through the village, past residents tending their rice and tea fields. From afar, the village looks like a pagoda (hence the name; the ‘tǎ’ in Tǎchuān means ‘pagoda’) as it’s built across the steps of foothills.

Tǎchuān is 5km northwest of Hóngcūn, on the road to Huángshān.
