Ancient Stone Vilage

A visit to this fascinating Qing-dynasty stone village (Shitoucheng), perched on top of a limestone peak, is an unusual foray into the countryside and makes a great day trip for those looking for an off -the-beaten-track adventure. The village was once a garrison town and the ancient gates and walls are mostly still intact. It’s a steep 30- to 50 minute climb up the hill from the village ‘new town’ to the ‘old town’ where the wall begins. Once at the top, it will take another 4-5 hours to walk around to all 4 of the main gates.
