Baoshan Stone City is located in the Jinsha River Gorge 110 kilometers north of Lijiang City. It is named after more than 100 households living on an independent mushroom-shaped boulder. Stone City is a cliff on three sides, and a stone slope is directly inserted into the Jinsha River. There are only two stone gates in the north and south, and it is a truly natural city.
The Baoshan Stone City was built in the early Yuan Dynasty. At that time, it was one of the seven states under the jurisdiction of Xuanfu Division, Lijiang Road, Yunnan Province. It has jurisdiction over the five townships of Jinda, Dadong, Mingyin, Baoshan and Fengke. In the embrace of the First Bay of the Yangtze River, Baoshan Prefecture is surrounded by rivers on three sides and shaped like a pocket bottom. The mountains and rivers in the territory are deep and the valley is deep. It has dense virgin forests and abundant animal and plant resources. The climate is ten days different, the hills are cold and the valleys are hot and dry.
Baoshan Stone City faces the Jinsha River that is roaring and roaring in the east, and the steep rock can be crossed in the south. The yakling ridges are stacked in the west, and the steep Prince Taiguan passes in the north. Like a beautiful Ganoderma lucidum standing in the mountains and mountains, tourists from a long distance often have strong feelings of uniqueness.
The Naxi language of Baoshan Stone City is called Labellu Panwu, which means Baoshan Baishi Village. The city s tiled houses and scales, the alleys are vertical and horizontal. Naxi residents set up rocks and build their houses. Simple and natural, infinite.
All the hillsides around Shicheng can be reclaimed as terraced fields. Compared with Yuanjiang s terraced fields, Baoshan s terraced fields also have originality, which is a unique artesian irrigation system-not in Ueda full of flowing down fields, but in each area . There are culverts under the fields to form an irrigation network formed by culverts and water outlets. When the culverts are blocked, the water will flow to fill the entire field. After the water is full, the culverts are opened and the irrigation faucets are blocked. You can irrigate the lower layers of fields—it will not produce fattening phenomenon. The originality of the construction of this terraced field fully shows the wisdom and wisdom of the ancient Naxi people.
The Baoshan Stone City looks like a dragon head in the distance, so there are many legends about the origin of Stone City: According to legend, there is a treasure land of Feng Shui, rich in rice, and many talented people. King Tian is very afraid that the powerful men there will take his country and send him to watch day and night. One night, a star fell on Mount Azhu on the other side of the river. King Tian knew that there was really a saint there, and hurriedly brought a sword and led the soldiers and horses to Baoshan to sit in town. Sure enough, one day, the wind was strong, the clouds were turbulent, and a glittering dragon flew from mid-air to Azhu Mountain. When he reached the river , he bowed his head and drank water. King Tian was jealous of fire, and was unprepared for the dragon. He lifted his sword and chopped it, and chopped off the dragon s neck. This dragon turned out to be the predecessor of the saint of Azhushan. After being killed, the dragon s head became a stone ci ty, and the dragon s body became a brush mountain.
Outbound bus: Every morning around 6:30, the bus is located at a car transportation company in Lijiang County. Individual CMB buses run about 2 buses a day to Baoshan Township.
After getting off the bus, walk down the road and walk down the mountain for about 1 hour. You can see the stone city on the opposite hill. Then walk for about half an hour, after crossing a small village, at the foot of Shicheng .
