Shaxi 沙溪

Located in the southeastern part of the Jianchuan district, Shaxi was an important trading centre on the Southern Silk Route during the Qing and Han dynasties. At the time of the Tang Dynasty, the town of Shaxi was already an important communications centre between the Chinese province of Sichuan, Yunnan and Tibet. It was in Shaxi that tea, brown sugar, cloth from Yunnan and Sichuan, leather, and other products from the Tibetan region were bought and sold. Although this route is no longer used, the Shaxi community have preserved the cobbled streets and traditional houses just as they were a thousand years ago, and the different minorities that live in the surrounding mountain villages can be seen at the Sideng market that takes place every Friday in Shaxi.
