Daoushaguan or Dousha Pass is located in Dousha Town, 20 kilometers from the county seat of Yanjin County, Zhaotong Municipality. It is one of the important ancient passages linking Yunnan and Central China as early as the 3rd century B.C. The swift current of Guanhe River split a towering cliff into two parts, disabling most passages linking Yunnan and Sichuan in this area. For centuries, Doushaguan had served as the first pass for those who entered Yunnan from Sichuan. A pavilion named “Tang Bei Ting” has been built at Dousha Pass, where one could appreciate the cliff carvings by Yuan Zi, a procurator and famous calligrapher in the Tang Dynasty (618-907). On the opposite of the pavilion, one could further witness the miraculous Suspended Coffins of Bo People. Travel Tips Yanjin County is about 570 kilometers away from Kunming, buses are available.
