Drive for 3 hours, passing some pretty cascades over sheer cliffs, and progressively higher and steeper mountains.

Built as a model communist town, this attractive city perched high on a mountain was deemed ※unsafe§ by government engineers and evacuated. 10 years later, the town still hadn't fallen into the river, so about a thousand members of the Lisu and Nu ethnic groups returned to live in the abandoned buildings.
