Filming location for movie "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon"
Picturesque Hongcunzhen Village near Yellow Mountain in Anhui Province was the filming location for "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon." The village is built in the shape of a water buffalo and the Moon Pool is its stomach. In a night scene in the movie, the female actors fly over the Moon Pool, touching down with steps skimming the water. Billowing bamboo forests surround the village, which is filled with lovely views, craft shops, local history, and art students with easels. Travel arrangements to Hongcunzhen and breathtaking Yellow Mountain can be made through the nearby city of Huangshan.
