30 Photographs of Anji: Bamboo Groves from ‘Crouching Tiger’

A few weeks ago EF took it’s staff on an overnight trip to Anji. I rode along with Cecily and fell in love with the endless bamboo groves which served as the backdrop for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

We spent most of our time exploring the hilly forests—and fit in some rafting and a bit of partying as well. Here are 30 images from our trip, as well as our impression of Anji.

The Verdict

This trip was a welcome break from the urban life. Since Anji is just 4 hours west of Shanghai, we’d love to explore this region more. Next time we’ll try to avoid hotels and camp instead—allowing us to enjoy more fresh air and forest trails.
