YUN-112 Shaxi, Diantoucun Village

Shāxī was once a crucial node on one of the old Tea-Horse Roads that stretched from Yúnnán to India. Only three caravan oases remain, Shāxī being the best preserved and the only one with a surviving market (held on Fridays). The village’s wooden houses, courtyards

and narrow, winding streets make it a wonderful location to imagine the old times.
