The valley offers different attractions throughout the four seasons. Blooming flowers stretch to the horizon in spring; countless fruits come in summer; the mountains are cloaked in red leaves in autumn; and the valley becomes a white wonderland in winter.

Daxigou Valley is embraced by lush wild fruit forests that include 400,000 fruit trees. Among the 60 varieties of wild fruits, apples, smoked plums, apricots, walnuts and hawthorns account for the majority. The valley is the biggest wild smoked plum producer in Asia. It is also the only wild cherry plum producer in Asia. The valley was also recognized as the home of China’s wild cherry plums.
