Dàměnglóng (written just ‘Měnglóng’ on buses) is one of those sleepy places to aim for when you want a respite from the beaten path and a base from which to do some aimless rambling.
Sānchàhé Nature Reserve
Watching this town come alive in the evening after its long afternoon siesta is reason enough to visit. If you arrive mid-afternoon, Měnghǎn (or Gǎnlǎnbà as it’s sometimes referred to), can seem almost deserted. Shop owners and hotel clerks fall into such deep sleeps, taps and calls barely get a response.
