Ecological wonder and ancient town draw tourists to Peng'an county, Sichuan
PENGAN, China, April 30, 2021 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

A cattle-herding festival was launched in Peng'an county, Sichuan province, on 
April 30, attracting tourists from all over the country to enjoy this natural 
wonder and a newly restored ancient town.

The county is famous for a natural scene called "hundreds of cattle crossing 
the river." In a small village of Peng'an near the Jialing River, the upper 
tributary of the Yangtze River, hundreds of cattle swim across the Jialing 
River in the morning to graze on the central island. The cows make the return 
journey across the river at dusk.

The grand scene repeatedly occurs from April to October and has become popular 
among tourists. Therefore, the local government launched an annual 
cattle-herding festival in 2010. The yearly festival begins on the last weekend 
of April.

Peng'an is also well-known for Xiangru Ancient Town, which was the hometown of 
Sima Xiangru (179-118 BC), a statesman, poet and musician from ancient China.
