Well-known as one of the most beautiful destinations in western Sichuan, Danba highlights the clusters of fascinating ancient watchtowers, a number of picturesque Tibetan villages, natural reserves untouched by modern tourism, traditional Jiarong Tibetan custom and more. A number of photographers come here for snow-white pear blossoms in spring and for red leaves ("Cailin" in Chinese) in autumn every year.
Wandering around Danba and surroundings, you will visit Jiaju Tibetan Village, one of the most beautiful six villages in China by the Chinese National Geographic Magazine, and Zhonglu Tibetan Village, known as “the place which gods and people look forward to”. Another wonderful attraction is Qiang Watchtowers. These ancient stone towers, nestled incongruously among village homes on hillsides overlooking the Dadu River, were built by the Qiang People between 700 and 1200 years ago. The towers range from 20m to 60m in height and were used as places of worship and to store valuables as well as to signal warnings of would-be attackers. The most famous is Suopo Diaolou Group, about 5km away from Danba county.
