Pingle Ancient Town is located in southwestern Qionglai. It is among the most original and well-preserved folk villages in western Sichuan. The Baimo River runs through the town from west to east. Along the banks of the river are thousand-year old banyan trees, stilt houses, and small docks. The quaint cobblestone roads and shopfronts, as well as the numerous bridges spanning the Baimo River, are part of Pingle Town's ineffable charm. Many of the town's Ming- and Qing-era houses have not only survived but are in good condition as well. Along both sides of the riverbanks, there are numerous cafés and snack shops to tempt a tired tourist to sit for a while and take a break. No visit is complete without trying the local pheasant and the stone-milled soft tofu.
