Lushi Ancient Town

Lushi Ancient Town (鲁史古镇) is 78 km north of Fengqing county in Lincang city, with a history of 409 years up to now.

Influenced by Nanzhao architecture of Dali, civilian residences in the town are mostly courtyards with rooms on 4 sides or 3 sides. Doors and windows often are decorated with carvings of exquisite craftsmanship.

Main lanes in the town are paved with stone plates with mule footprints, which evidences the property of the Tea and Horse Road.
