Room is very basic but the family is very friendly and the decor of the house is very welcoming. It gets a bit chilly early morning / late at night especially... More

From Danba, an unattractive... More

Just 5km from Danba, we simply flagged down a local car and paid a small amount for a lift. It costs 50 rmb for an adult to enter the town. The kids were free. The views are stunning.There are three viewing platforms as well as other attractions such as this beautiful ancient polar woodland. Very pleasant indeed. It was a... More
