Baoshan Stone Town Tours

Baoshan Stone Town is not a town made of stone as it is named, but a big village built on a huge stone. The mighty nature mother brought along a heavy stone, and the diligent Naxi People turned it into a wonderland under heaven. 

Baoshan Stone Town is located on the north of Lijang; about 110 km from the Lijiang Ancient Town. At this small town, with its highest altitude of 4600 meters and the lowest of 1600 meters above the sea level, the difference in altitude is as much as 3000 meters. The huge stone is about 0.5 square kilometers on the waterfront which is surrounded by cliffs on three sides and Jinsha River on the fourth. The Baoshan Town was just built on this huge stone. 

In size, Baoshan Stone Town might have been a bit too small; but the precise layout of the architecture is completely impressive. With three streets across and five streets upright, they lead up to every corner of the town.  It is extremely difficult for people to slip the sight of architectural and furniture designs.  The floorings of the houses, the pillars and eaves are all made of stones. Then the furniture like stone beds, stone pillows, stone basins, and stone tables were carved from the huge stones that looked similar to one another. As a ‘town’, Baoshan Stone Town is just too nice and little, but on the other hand, it is a wonderful piece of artistic work. Hundreds of families have lived on this huge stone over a thousand years. The clever Naxi People carved their wisdom, their life and hardworking spirit into the craftsmanship. 

In history, Kublai Khan once led his army across the Jinsha River and arrived where Baoshan Stone Town is today in autumn 1253. Since then, the local population has been growing day after day. 

Boashan Stone Town sits there, appearing uniquely simple and unsophisticated, and exhibiting the charm of local culture at the same time.
