The Olive Dam, also called the “peacock tail”, is a well-known dam where the Dais have lived compactly. It was the first station of our trip in Yunnan Province. In Xishuangbanna, it is the sole original and natural ecological village where five villages stand as an integral whole in it.
The Olive Dam is called “Menghan” in Dai’s language. When we came here, we surely could taste the tropical landscape and strong national colour of ancient villages.
There are various tropical plants here, such as palms, cocoanuts, bananas, arecas, jackfruits, mangos and coconuts. They can satisfy your appetite.
