Shaman Totem Forest is the first place to enter the scenic spot. Shaman totem pole and Jurchen tree drum introduce people s affection to ancient civilization. The term Shaman is a Jurchen word, meaning a person like a wizard, who is said to have the ability to convey the will of the person to the gods, and to pass the will of the gods to the person. Shamanism is a primitive religion commonly believed in ancient northern nations in China. It originated in the prosperous period of primitive matriarchal clan society. Ancient Jurchens, Huns, Khitan, modern Manchu, Mongolian, Kazakh and other ethnic groups have all retained Shamanism Certain customs. In the past, shamanism was spread over a vast area, as far as the vast regions of North Asia, Northern Europe , and North America.
There are 15 totem poles in the shamanic totem forest. The idols carved on them have different forms, because shamanism is a primitive polytheism, a polytheistic worship formed under the domination of the concept of all things have spirit. Manchus believe in many deities , but Shamanism does not have temples and shrines, nor does it have full-time clerics such as masters and sacrifices. People who believe in this religion spontaneously form a Chama among the tribe, in charge of major activities such as sacrificing heaven and earth, mountain gods, land and ancestor worship, and wishing. The gods are mostly embodied in woodcarving or painting.
The gods represented by the totem are: Lord of Changbai Mountain (full voice, super-ha Zhanye), Goddess of Direction (and Shuhege), God of Father (Wu Xuankuomafa), God of Mother (Mother of Buddha), God of Mushroom (Mother Mori), Breast-feeding mother (Nadan Hulu s mother), snow god (Meng You Endu), embroidered goddess (Ilhagg), gold god (love new Endu), and the god of god, snake, and eagle, Leopard God and so on.
Jurchen tree drum, ancient Manchu people need to worship for entering the mountain. For example, when digging into the mountains, you should first worship the Lord God (commonly known as the old head), burn incense, make a wish with a hoe, and the prayer might be: The Lord God is on the top, and the disciples will pick up the goods in the mountain, please Give directions, let me wait to open your eyes, take the big goods, make a lot of money, and come back to kill the chicken and pigs to give you a vow. Then each person hit the tree drum three times with a wooden clog.
From the lower reaches of the waterfall, the river flows upwards. First, it is a wooden arch bridge—the entertainment bridge. Hundreds of rainbow trout are clearly visible in the waters under the bridge. Pass by the play trout bridge and walk 300 meters inward along the boardwalk. In a nearby mountain stream, 21 volcanic wells are concentrated. As the name suggests, volcanic wells and round wellheads protrude from the surface, with the largest diameter of no more than 1.5 meters and depths of 2-3 meters. The borehole wall is hard lava. If you look closely, the borehole wall has complete art. But volcanic wells are not used for taking water. It is amazing that a large amount of charcoal is stored at the bottom of each volcanic well. The art on the wall of the well looks like the art on the bark. How did it come about? From the discovery of this magical volcanic well to the present, relevant experts have pointed out that during the eruption of Jinlong Dingzishan, liquid magma flowe d on the surface and flowed through the valley at the foot of the mountain in a very short time. It was originally dense here. In the virgin forest, many towering trees were wrapped by magma flows, and quickly burned and carbonized, forming a volcanic well wonder.
There are many trees and many kinds of trees around the waterfall. Only dozens of willows are gathered in one place, with a height of more than 30 meters, and they are upright and straight, like a poplar, and there are no willows. This kind of tree is called willow and it is rare in the Longgang Mountains. Especially the willow which is more than 30 meters high is even rarer.
