An interesting look at original Chinese architecture Jun 15, 2012
Cuandixia is known for its architecture and natural beauty. It is home to 500 well preserved courtyard homes dating to the Ming and Qing dynasties. Many of these homes have been converted into inns offering food and lodging to travelers. Stone paved lanes and steep staircases help define Chuandixia's architectural identity. The village is a frequent subject of photographers and painters. The surrounding area is full of mountains and trails popular with hikers.

Also nearby the main village is an abandoned settlement around 15mins up a mountain pass. Tis place is very interesting as many of the original building still survive and its completely abandoned.

Name of the other village is baiyutang and is a little tricky to find. Ask the locals where it is.
