History and Tourism

The Sichuan-Shaanxi border area of Tongjiang was the headquarters location for the formation of the Fourth Red Army, which became part of the People's Liberation Army. A cliff with a carved slogan "赤化全川", which translates roughly to "Communization All of Sichuan" or "Redden All of Sichuan", is a well-known landmark in the area.

Tongjiang is also known for its local specialty of cooked Fungus, and is known colloquially as the “中国银耳之乡” or "Hometown of Chinese White Fungus", and is listed for national protection as the originating region of this product; much like Champagne is in France.
