Tongluoba Forest Park is situated in Shuifu County of Zhaotong Municipality and is about 40 kilometers away from the county seat. The park mainly includes five brooks, eighteen small basins, seven lakes and dozens of waterfalls. It has been so far the best-preserved subtropical evergreen latifoliate forest in the northeast of Yunnan Province.
The natural sceneries in Tongluoba Park are quite intriguing with thousands of peaks and dense forests. Gezigu (Dove Valley) is most impressive for its famous Davidia involucrate (dove trees) that bear flowers looking like flying white pigeons. The one-thousand-year-old elephant-trunk tree astonishes many people by its crisscrossing root system and its vivid resemblance to an elephant trunk. Camellia and rhododendron shrubs greet to visitors in booming time.
The top of the park is the best point to view the sunrise, sunset and the clouds. In wintertime, however, Tongluoba is in a world of snows with overhanging ice. Other scenic attractions include Xiannv (Fairy) Pond, Moshi (ink stone) Pool, Shuilianbi (water curtain), Shuilian Cave, and waterfalls. The reservoir of Tongluoba power station is naturally the centre of the park; and the Er’daoba further integrates several lakes into a boundless world of water with reflections of the mountains and forests nearby.
