Vist the Manfeilong Pagoda amidst rubber trees
The sleepy town of Damenglong is located about 60km south of Jinghong, the capital of the Xishuangbanna autonomous region. Via the recently finished new road, Damenglong can now be reached within an hour from Jinghong. There is not much to see in Damenglong itself.
The main attraction of Damenglong is the “Manfeilong” or “White Bamboo Shoot” Pagoda reportedly dating back to the early 13th century.
The Manfeilong Pagoda is located approximately 3km north of Damenglong on a hill and is almost entirely surrounded by rubber tree plantations. There is another Pagoda right above the town which offers nice views of the Damenglong at the surroundings.
