Changyu Wine Chateau was established in 1892. It has a history of more than 100 years so far. It is widely thought that Changyu is the founder’s name. But in fact, that’s not true. The founder was called Chang Bishi. The brand name Chang Yu is the founder’s family name added by a Chinese character “Yu”, which means rich and prosperity. Since then, Chang Yu Wine Company has been prospering and passed from generation to generation for more than 100 years. Its wine is popular in China even around the world until now.

 

Chang Bishi

Before Chang Bishi invested in wine business, he has already been a successful businessman. When he was in Southeast Asia, he accepted a Dutch friend’s invitation to attend a party held in French Consulate. There, he knew for the first time about the delicacy of French wine. And a French consul told him that during the period of the second Opium War, the Anglo-French Allied Force stationed in Yantai, the soldiers found a lot of wild grapes in the mountain, using these grapes, they made extraordinarily delicious wine, some French soldiers even thought about staying in Yantai and doing wine business, but because of the war, this dream didn’t come true whatever.

Chang Bishi kept those words deep in mind for more than two year. In 1892, Chang Yu was established with the help of the official. The chateau invited famous calligrapher Weng Tongsu, who served the emperor, to give the inscription. What’s more, in Empress Dowage Cixi’s 60th birthday, Chang Bishi paid a tribute of 300 thousand liang(50g) silver. And it was widely spread that he got met by the Mongolian emperor three times

However, even for such a famous and popular chateau, building and running a time-honored brand is not easy. At that time, only the businessmen who held important posts in the government would succeed in China. Chang Bishi, ordinary people, considered seeking fame and wealth in export market. He didn’t only spend a lot of money hiring foreign winemakers, but also carried out research on the quality of wine, the condition of storage and so on. As a result, wine made by Chang Yu is a hybrid with both Chinese and western blood. The taste of the wine is even more delicious than that made in the west, making it rank the first among the eight most famous wines in China.

The following three reasons will convince you that it is worth your sweat to have a Mt. Everest Tour.

Along the lakeshore of Yamdrok, one of the three holy lakes in Tibet, you will not only enjoy a pure and peaceful lake view, but also have the chance to watch flocks of migration birds. At the foot of Karola Glacier, you can embrace this spectacular white world. If weather permits, the magnificent glacier will glisten under the bright sun. When heading to the Mt. Everest base camp, you are already above the altitude of 5200 meters. At the base camp, you will have the best view of pyramid-shape Mt. Everest, the stunning bright galaxy in the night and glacier valleys nearby.

The Potala Palace, the most famous castle-style complex in Tibet, is a holy palace for every Tibet traveler. Here you can appreciate the magnificent architecture, religious wall paintings and Buddhist statues, or just pray with the Lama’s chanting of sutras. The Kumbum temple has the largest stupa in Tibet with a history dating tracing back to 1427. It is the landmark of Gyantse, and you can recognize its golden doom and white tower body in distance. Jakhang Temple, the oldest temple in Lhasa, is recognized as the religious center of Tibet. Surrounded by the smell of yak butter, you will be immersed in a spiritual experience of purification along with the other pilgrim in Tibet. Tashilhunpo Monastery, one of the four main monasteries, stretches out on the southern slope of the mountain in Shigatse. Here you can see the world’s largest glided Qamba Buddha bronze statue, refined religious murals and other precious cultural relics.

No choice is better than a free walk in a lively market for you to live like a local. The Barkhor Bazaar is the most famous marketplace in Lhasa. Here you can buy the local handcrafts, try Tibetan cuisines and have a nice talk with the friendly Tibetan people. Out of Lhasa, you can also explore the local culture in the vintage towns like Gyantse or Shigatse.
