The stone city

Today we went for a ramble in the countryside.

First we had to get a bus to Putao, then finish the journey to Shitouchen, by riding pillion on a motor bike taxi.

No such thing as health and safety over here 🙂

Shitoucheng or the stone city as it’s called is perched on top of a limestone peak.

It was a steep 30 / 40 min climb up the hill to reach the old town where the wall begins.

We passed many interesting things on the way including fruit trees and paddy fields.

Most interesting was an old grave yard where all the graves were circular.

After a good 3 hour walk around the stone ruins, it was time to get back on our motor bike taxi and head back to Putao for the bus.
