The ancient town of Baofeng is south of Yunlong County, and roads are being built right out of the city. They are all gravel roads. Fortunately, they are only a few kilometers away. There are not many cars on the road, and you can get there in about half an hour. There are observation decks on the road, and the films taken are very spectacular. The archway at the entrance of the town is newly built, so you can park here. Baofeng Ancient Town is one of the birthplaces of ancient Yunlong ancestors. It was called Luoma and Luomajing in ancient times, and later renamed Jinquanjing. It is the southernmost well among the eight wells in Yunlong. Passing through this archway, crossing the bridge is the ancient town. The ancient town, which was once prosperous in the salt industry, has now fallen. The historic sites in the town are not well protected. Most of the scenic spots on the map no longer exist, and only a few places can be seen. The town should be looking for tourism, and the streets have obviously been renovated and are clean and tidy. The most famous attraction in town is the former residence of Dong Ze. Dong Ze, the founder of Yunnan University, has been engaged in education all his life. He is deeply loved by the people of Yunnan and enjoys a high life. There are five courtyards in the former residence. Now only the first and second entrances are open for visits. There are few tourists and local primary school students can play freely in it. Seeing the sign of the "Golden Spring Well", I went around the mountain and asked a lot of people, but half of them said that they hadn't heard of it. The salt industry is really declining, and I haven't found it. The eldest brother knows the road. In fact, he walked a few tens of meters forward, but the gate was locked and no entry was allowed. A little regret~ Going up the river, there is a small iron bridge at the head of the village, which is the first steel truss in the history of highways in Yunnan Province. The bridge was originally located between the Big Chestnut Tree and Gongguo Bridge (Changgan Bridge). It was bombed by the Japanese many times during the Anti-Japanese War and survived. After liberation, it was moved here due to the construction of a hydropower station. In the Baofeng Primary School at the entrance of the village, there are also the Library and the Palace of Qinzheng. There are other scenic spots such as Baiyi Pavilion, Fulong Temple, Jade Emperor Pavilion, Xuanzhen Temple, etc., which are far away and it is getting late, so I did not look for it and drove back to Yunlong County. There is also a Gongguo Bridge on the road back to Yunlong County from the ancient town, which is very beautiful in the sunset. During the Anti-Japanese War, the Japanese devils bombed the bridge many times, and the military and civilians worked together to maintain the bridge smoothly. The original site was in Gongguo Village. After the liberation, the bridge was moved here due to the repair of a hydropower station.
