Historical Architecture
The Wanghai Tower is located on the west of Fenghuang Mountain in the southern suburb of Zhaotong City. It was built in 1760, the 25th year of the reign of Emperor Qianlong of the Qing dynasty, by Shen Shenglin, the magistrate of En’an County. During the end of the Guangxu period (1871-1908), the local gentleman Yang Luheng further built in front of the building additional chambers, corridors, and walls. He also constructed pavilions on the east and west bridges, and planted flowers and trees in the surroundings. Now the Wanghai Tower and the Wanghai Park have become a sought-after place for recreation and education.

Dashanbao is in Zhaotong City, Yunnan Province. It is ideal for self-driving tours. It is divided into four scenic spots: Jigong Mountain, Xianrentian, Tiaodun Lake and Dahaizi. Jigong Mountain is a good place to watch the sea and the sunset. Local residents sell unique snacks on the mountain, and you can taste them while you watch the black-necked cranes living there. Looking around, a large green meadow is dotted with horses and cows. There are scattered small lakes and beautiful grassland scenery.

Trip Moments

JOJO’s wonderful trip   
In Yunnan, the geographical concept of northeastern Yunnan, as long as you look at the map, it is understood to be part of Zhaotong City and Qujing City.
There is a little secret in Zhaotong - Dashanbao, where there is the sea of Jigong Mountain, the black-necked crane with the sea, and the scenery is excellent. The following is a self-driving road book for Chengdu and Chongqing.
Self-driving route: Chongqing Chengdu is the first to go into the high-speed highway, and the inner river to Yibin Expressway to Yibin (the lunch can be arranged in the inner river, and the squid museum is delicious not far from the lower crossing of Neijiang Expressway). After going to Yibin, continue to go to Yunnan. After passing through Shuifu County in Yunnan Province (the location of the Grand Canyon in the west, the hot springs) is a pseudo-high speed of more than 80KM. After the walk, it will go to Zhaotong. Generally, it takes 6 from Chongqing to Zhaotong. Many hours. The next morning, I will take the 80KM Panshan Road from Zhaotong to Dashanbao, Zhuquan Road---Old Town----(All the way to ask)-----Dashanbao, this section is relatively narrow, sometimes I also have to encounter foggy weather. Generally, after going to Dashanbao Township, I will drive to the sea to see the black-necked crane. After reading it, I will return to Dashanbao Township for lunch. I will take another road to the Flea River after dinner. I will not let the car go here. Yes, you can walk 3KM to the Jigong Mountain Scenic Area, or you can ride a horse for 15 yuan one way. After enjoying the clouds in Jigong Mountain, you can return to Zhaotong. Back to Zhaotong is basically 7 or 8 o'clock in the evening.
