    To take in the scenery, the best place to base yourself is YUANYANG, a small town 80km south of Jianshui and 110km south west of Gejiu. A sleepy hill town, it becomes a hive of activity on market days(every five days), when Hani, Miao, Yi and Yao minorities come into town from the villages around.
