The Loess Plateau got its name because of its most distinctive feature, the yellow soil that has been deposited by wind storms over the ages. It is enormously important in Chinese history, as it is the cradle of Chinese civilization. Even the first legendary emperor’s family name is called Huang, meaning Yellow. Soil was fertile here, so people came to settle down. They carved out “caves” on the hillside or excavated horizontally from a central “sunken courtyard”. In 1981, when Keren Su bicycled across China, he saw the “cave houses” for the first time. There was only one big clay bed called “Kang” inside the cave and every one slept on this clay bed. Keren noticed the edge of the bed was made of stone. Local villagers were so friendly and they treated Keren with handmade wheat noodles, their best food saved for the Chinese New Year. Grandpa was operating the noodle machine skillfully. Grandma was in front of the stove dropping the noodle into the boiling water. Kids were waiting for their share. What a happy moment! If you look at the room carefully, you will notice the vaulted ceiling which resembles a cave house. The windows are decorated with intricate papercut patterns. The bed frame is made of bricks, complete with a wind-box powered stove, just like Kang in the old days. While staying in this room, you will get to experience the rustic Loess Plateau with its hospitality and unique lifestyle fully in display.
