    Danba (丹巴) village and visit the home of a Jiarong Tibetan (嘉绒藏族). Danba or Valley of Beauties (美人谷) is the east gate of Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Sichuan Province. Danba has a unique scenery. The homes, built like fortresses, are block-shaped built from different types of natural stones obtained from the mountain. Look out for the stone castles (石砌碉楼) used for defence and look-out towers in olden times. http://www.ourlearningspace.com/sichuan2007

    Thanks for sharing this photo, FHOBIZ, I had never heard of this area before. The houses look like small castles and should have colored banners hanginging from their spires.
