"The ancient city site of Xiahe Bajiao lies on the platform of the intersection of Yangqu River and Yangla River in the east of Ganjiatan, Xiahe County, Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, about 50 minutes drive from Xiahe County. It is a key point of the traffic of ancient Ganqing, and it is also a military town in which the central government fought fiercely with the Tuguhun, Tuyu, Xixia and Siam dynasty. The present ancient city of Hachikaku remains basically intact, and was listed as a key cultural relics protection unit in Gansu Province in 1981. The city of the eight corners of the city is named because of its eight corners, the city is a hollow cross. The total length of the city 2193.4 meters, 2.2 kilometers, the city covers 300 mu. There are moats, moats, and outer walls outside the site of the city. There is another outer city outside the South Gate. From the architectural technology, the city system before Tang Dynasty built, the building form breaks through the square pattern, very unique. Although the city is not small, but the distance between the corners of the city within the effective range of bows and knots, can be mutually catering, so easy to defend and difficult to attack. The ancient city has a natural village, dozens of residents. The site of the ancient city is just north of a viewing platform, on which you can overlook the whole of the city, but also can enjoy the magical scenery of the secret of Ganjia."

"Niba Village is a famous Tibetan village in Zhuoni County. Most of the villagers live in the mountains. They are mostly wooden houses. When you look around, they are stacked on top of each other, and the village faces south. The Tao River tributary Cheba River is in the village. Zhong Wei Yi flows. The original half-agricultural and half-pastoral lifestyle is still preserved here. The residents of the village work at sunrise and rest at sunset. And there are many centenarians here. The oldest old in the village lived to be 114 years old. I believe that it is not just Zhuoni’s natural and pure living environment that prolongs life. The purity of mind brought about by Tibetan Buddhism is another. Longevity gene. Niba Village rises on the mountain and lives by the water. The mountains on both sides of the village are full of dense forests, and there are grass beaches of various sizes on the open land. The houses in the villages are similar in form. The dwellings in the villages are very dense and the houses are connected by walls. All the people in Niba Village believe in Tibetan Buddhism and retain a strong religious atmosphere. A white pagoda by the river is a place where people in the village conduct religious activities. Around the tower are corridors of Mani barrels. Some large Mani barrels are tied with ropes woven from wool of various colors. The other end of the rope is tied to the pillars. Pull the rope and the Mani barrels will rotate and pull a few at the same time. One rope will turn several Mani buckets at the same time. This is for Tibetan elderly people. These wool ropes allow them to sit on the ground and pull the rope to complete their prayers. Here, faith is deeply rooted in the hearts of every villager, and it is reflected in every detail of life. Every day, it will come to the turning gallery to turn the prayer tube. Tips for visiting Niba Village: 1. There is a shuttle bus from Zhuoni County to Niba Village, which departs daily through Gongba Temple and Malu Town. It is a private contractor. You need to go to the station to ask about the time and location of the bus. 2. If you want to experience Tibetan village life in depth, it is recommended to live in Niba Village for one night to fully experience the scenery and lifestyle of Niba Village. The houses on the mountain are relatively simple and the conditions under the mountain are better. You can make Tibetan meals with the owner. Accommodation is calculated per person, and the price is negotiated with the owner. The safest way to insure is to ask the secretary of the Niba village branch to lead the way to the Tibetan home. If necessary, you can leave a message in this travel blog to ask for the contact information of the secretary of the Niba village branch. 3. Niba Village does not produce vegetables. You can buy vegetables at Zhuoni’s bazaar and bring them there. The noodle soup, stewed vegetables and Tibetan dumplings made by Tibetan housewives are delicious. Warabi pork is a local specialty, but it takes a long time to make it. If you eat it, you need to book in advance. 4. Niba Village is still a virgin land that has not developed tourism. When you go here, you should have a respectful and courteous attitude, respect the habits of local villagers' production, life and religious activities, and don't chase villagers, especially the elderly, to take pictures."
