The Xiangxi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture is located in the northwestern part of Hunan Province. It has numerous caves, canyons and waterfalls. The scenery is very beautiful. Fenghuang County, within the jurisdiction, was listed in the first batch of national historical and cultural cities. There are also a large number of natural landscapes and cultural relics. Over 400 years of local governance has left behind unique worship, marriage, and funeral customs along with a shamanic culture. There are also various museums and attractions that reflect the history and culture of the Miao nationality in Jishou City—the capital of Xiangxi.
Fenghuang Ancient Town gained fame after author Shen Cong Wen's famous piece "Border Town". The town was built during the reign of Emperor Kangxi during the Qing Dynasty. The residents living there now are mainly from the Miao and Tujia ethnic minority. Ranking as the top ancient town in China, Fenghuang Ancient Town is a guidebook for people to know the past life in the pre-modernization period. Wooden houses and stone roads are the typical scenes here. The scenery after rain or in the misty morning is like a traditional chinese painting. When the town lights up at night, it feels like you are immersed in a fairyland. It is recommended to stay for a night to fully enjoy this town.
The Tuo River is located in Fenghuang County. Tourists know it as the river along the walls of Phoenix Ancient Town. The Tuo River's waters are clear and blue, and centuries-old dwelling are contained on both banks of the river. On the south bank of the river lies an ancient city wall made of purple sandstone. Even after all these years, it still looks spectacular. Near the east gate of Minjiang River, there are attractions such as the Wanshou Building, Wanming Tower and the Zhancui Building. The "jumping rock" near the north gate of the river served as an important entry-exit point of the Phoenix Ancient City. It's a great spot for a photo!

The town is also known as a "million-year-old town hanging on a waterfall". The center of the ancient village is built atop a tall rock from which drops a majestic waterfall tens of meters to the foot of the town. The Tujia shacks in the town are all located quite close to the waterfall.
