    The Qingdao-Taiyuan High-Speed Railway has a total length of 770 km. With its western terminus in Taiyuan, it passes through Shijiazhuang and Jinan to reach its eastern terminus in the coastal city of Qingdao, crossing North China in an east-west direction.

    While countless Buddhist grottoes have been built throughout Chinese history, Taoist grottoes are few and far between. The Longshan Grottoes in Taiyuan are the biggest and best preserved Taoist grottoes in China.

    The construction of the Great Wall of Qi began during the Spring and Autumn Period. With more than 2,600 years of history, it was built 400 years before its Qin counterpart, and is therefore known as the “Father of the Great Wall of China”.

    Meanwhile, the works for Longxing Temple in Shijiazhuang commenced in the sixth year of the first Sui dynasty emperor’s reign, i.e. AD 586. An awe-inspiring masterpiece is housed in Moni Hall - the colourful wall sculpture of Guanyin, commonly known as the Sitting Guanyin, which dates back to the Song dynasty.

    Lujialing Village lies 820 m above sea level. Built against the mountains, the settlement looks out onto precipitous cliffs, hence its reputation as the “Village on the Clouds”.

    Chaquan was transmitted to Shandong from Xinjiang more than 400 years ago. It is now a national intangible cultural heritage. 74-year-old Gao Henglun has been practising martial arts since the age of eight. He is the fifth generation successor of Yang Style Chaquan.

    Qingdao was once a German Concession during the beginning of the last century. The literati were drawn here to live and create in the Republic of China Period. Upon arrival in Yushan District, which is known as the “Path of the Literati”, you will find the former residences of Shen Congwen, Liang Shiqiu, Xiao Hong, and Wen Yiduo. Faint traces of their literary spirit can still be felt along the bluestone path they once treaded upon.

      The Search for Roots

      With its northern terminus in Harbin City of Heilongjiang Province, the Harbin-Dalian High-Speed Railway passes through Changchun and Shenyang to reach its southern terminus in Dalian City of Liaoning Province. Traversing the Three Northeastern Provinces, it has a total length of 921 km and is the first high-speed railway in China to be built in an alpine region. It is also the world’s first new high-elevation high-speed railway.

      In this episode, we will travel along the Harbin-Dalian High-Speed Railway and venture deep into Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture in Jilin Province to see how the descendants of China’s ethnic Koreans are carrying on their customs, as well as to observe the traditional activities carried out by the local men and women.

      The film crew will also head deep into Paektu Mountain to look for ginseng with a veteran forager, so as to gain a deeper understanding of how the custom of wild alpine ginseng foraging has been passed down to the present day in Fusong County.

With its eastern terminus in Lanzhou, it passes through Xining, Zhangye, Jiuquan, Jiayuguan, Hami, and Turpan to reach its western terminus in Ürümqi, Xinjiang. It is the first high-speed railway in China to be built on a plateau, at high altitude, and in an alpine region. It is also the longest high-speed railway in the world to be completed in a single phase.
