A village in Hangzhou, Zhejiang province is tapping into its tea-growing tradition and Buddhist cultural heritage as it seeks to become a tourist destination.

Jingshan village, a picturesque rural community surrounded by vast stretches of terraced tea plantations in west of Hangzhou, is the sole growing area for its namesake farm produce – Jingshan tea leaves.

Moss-coated slab stones zigzag and lead visitors through rows of stand-alone farmhouses. Waist-high fences allow peaks into the rural lives unfolding in the courtyard.

Just a few kilometers away, the ancient Jingshan Temple is tucked in the cloud-enveloped Jingshan mountain.
