Welcome to Tiānlóng & Tiāntáishān
You only need around a couple of hours to explore this delightful village cut with a sparkling stream not far outside Ānshùn. Tiānlóng (天龙) is a well-preserved Túnpǔ village (屯堡), its settlements erected by Ming dynasty garrison troops posted here during the reign of Hongwu to help quell local uprisings and consolidate control. Coming from the middle and lower reaches of the Yangzi River, the soldiers brought their customs and language with them. Han descendants of these 14th-century soldiers live in Tiānlóng today. The local women are notable for their turquoise tops with embroidered hems; other local idiosyncrasies include distinct colloquialisms: the local expression for a thief is a yèmāozi (夜猫子; 'night cat').
Admission to the village is ¥35; a through ticket is ¥50.
