A "toulu" represents a large, enclosed, and fortified earthen building, usually square or circular, with thick walls and the capacity to house around 80 people. Take a walk around the site and see how people still live in the distinctive buildings today. Climb to the top of the hill and enjoy views of the three round, one square, and one unique oval toulu, called “four dishes with a soup” in Chinese.
