The First Bend of the Yangtze River-Shigu Town
The Yangtze River, originating from the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, rolls down to Shigu Town and makes a V-turn to flow toward northeast. People call this section the "first bend of the Yangtze River."
Shigu is 50 kilometers from Lijiang. It was named after a stone tablet in the shape of a drum recording the merits of a headman in Lijiang during the Ming Dynasty. On the bank of the river there is a memorial hall of the Long March fo the Red Army.
