Photo taken on Nov. 4, 2011 shows an ancient watchtower in Zhonglu Township of Danba County of southwest China's Sichuan Province. Danba lies on the eastern border of the Ganzi Tibet Autonomous Region of Sichuan Province. The Tibetan villages here are famous for their gorgeous watchtowers and traditional Tibetan fortress-like houses, which constitute a remarkable scenery with the natural surroundings. There are 562 ancient rock watchtowers in Danba, which are all built hundreds of years ago for defensive purposes. Jiaju Tibetan Village in Danba, the most popular among tourists, was proclaimed "the most beautiful ethnic town in China" by the Chinese National Geographic in 2005. (Xinhua/Jiang Hongjing)
