Town
拭目以待12You must visit Ailao Mountain when you come to Kasa. Nanen Waterfall, Shimenxia, Tusi House, and Ancient Tea Horse Road are the main attractions to visit. Ailao Mountain is also a rare animal sanctuary. The only remaining green peacock habitat is the Xinping Cansa River. Upstream, there are of course other national protected animals. It is very cost-effective to stay at Gaga Youth Hostel in Cansa. It is also more convenient to eat local wild wild vegetables. There is a restaurant in the hostel called "Cooking Class", which is the first military catering in Cansa. Due to limited space, I will introduce you to this for the time being. It is better to see it after hearing it. It is better to go to the field to visit and experience the enthusiasm of Huayao Dai and the local exotic folk customs.

Canyon
sp_toWow, amazing hike into the gorge. It was around 2.6 km to the end and it took about an hour or so. The last 1.4 km was quit quick. The hike is not that hard or tiring. Lots of little flies flying around you but didn’t bite, just annoying. We used trekking poles and that helped a lot. Unfortunately, it rained on the way out. The multiple shelters can in handy. The path is relatively new but beware it can slippery. Well worth the 30 RMB entrance ticket.

Historical Architecture
燕归来文化Xinping Tusi Mansion, also called Ailao Mountain Tusi Mansion, is located on the mountainside of Yaonan Village, Gasa Town, Xinping Yi and Dai Autonomous County, Yunnan Province. It covers an area of 4.2 acres and consists of three major buildings including a courtyard, a garden and a stable. There are 65 rooms in total. It has a novel layout, unique shape and rich historical and cultural heritage. What’s more peculiar is this Tusi Mansion in the depths of the Ailao Mountain. The gate design is a combination of Chinese and Western styles. To prevent fires, the Tusi Mansion built in the Song Dynasty also thought of building a fire pool in the courtyard for heating. And built heating channels and so on. The Tusi Mansion was established in the Song Dynasty and belonged to the "Yanwang Tusi Yamen" of Xinping during the Dali Kingdom of the Song Dynasty and was under the hereditary jurisdiction of the Yanwang family of the Dai nationality. During the Qianlong reign of the Qing Dynasty, the original Dai "Yanwang Tusi" was transferred to the Li family in Longxi to manage the Ailao Mountain hereditary, forming two chieftains of the Dai and Han people, and a history of the Xinping chieftain for a thousand years. At that time, the chieftain Li Runzhi built his Tusi Mansion on such a high place. It was condescending, easy to defend and hard to attack. Moreover, the Feng Shui was backed by the main peak of the mountain, and the mountains on both sides were majestic and the front view was wide. The geographical location was high and the air was fresh and cool. The hot climate is in contrast, suitable for human habitation, and a good place for leisure.
