Heshun, 3 miles away from northwest Tengchong of Yunnan Province, is over 600 years old. It is only a small cluster of tile roofs huddled together in the green valley below. Looking down on it, there is none of Tengchong’s urban drabness. The tiled roofs are squeezed together so tightly it is difficult to discern if the town has any streets. Though of course it does.

  • Great Attractions: Some attractions one should not miss when coming to Heshun Ancient Town include Heshun Library, Former Residence of Ai Siqi, Wenchang Palace, etc.
