  •  Ganlan(oliver ) Sandbar

    Known in the language of the Dai people as Menghan , the Ganlan Sandbar on the Lancang River is a world famous peacock tail , meaning the most beautiful part of xishuangbanna .Trip to Xishuangbanna is complete without a visit to Ganlan Sandbar , as the popular saying goes . Situated at the end of a 37-kilometers trip down the Lancang River from Jinghong , and covering an area of 50 square kilometers at an altitude of 530 meters ( the lowest
       
    point of Xishuangbanna ) , the Ganlan(Olive ) Sandbar derives its name from the fact that it is forever clothed in greenery and that it takes the shape of an olive . A total of 64 Dai-inhbited villages are found on the sandbar ,and bamboo abodes gleam in the verdure of coconut trees , with water flowing past them all the year round , and flowers in full bloom in all four seasons , synonymous to the Dai people dwellings . The Ganlan Sandbar , its tropical landscape looking sylvan in the ethnic Dai tradition , evinces an air of classic sanctity and natural repose .
