Top choice village in Danba

Comparatively remote Zhōnglù, 13km from Dānbā, is a popular village for homestays and a good base for wandering through the countryside. Look for the old stone steps that climb above the village for fantastic views of the countryside and Zhōnglù's many watchtowers.

To get here, catch a minibus from a small parking lot across from 42 Sanchahe Nanlu (¥15, 25 minutes), about 10 minutes' walk from the hostels, or take a taxi (¥80). Minibuses return from the village to Dānbā until around 6pm.
