Donglianhua Village: Shaxi ancient town far away from noise

Shaxi, an ancient town with a long history, is located in the southwest of Jianchuan County, Dali, Yunnan Province. It is located in the southeast of Jinsha River, Lancang River and Nujiang River Nature Reserve. It is a famous scenic spot in Dali. The history of Shaxi ancient town can be traced back to the spring and Autumn period and the Warring States period more than 2400 years ago. The ancient tombs of Aofeng mountain and the huacongshan copper mine site in the east of Shaxi were studied. As early as 400 BC, Shaxi formed a bronze smelting production base centered on the Heihui river. At that time, Shaxi ancestors had a high level of bronze smelting technology and became one of the birthplaces of Yunnan bronze culture.

It is far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. There is no noisy crowd, and there is no resplendent ancient city like Dali and Lijiang. It is just a small square street, but it is so simple, original and far away.
