Lugu Lake

Lugu Lake, China travel Lijiang tour Yunnan tripThe Lugu Lake is set in a dense forest between the Ninglang Yi Autonomous County of Yunnan Province and Yanyuan County of Sichuan Province and 300 kilometres from Dayan Town of Liliang.

The environment around the lake is well preserved where the air is fresh, the water pollution-free, and the scenery incredibly delightful. The shore of the lake is home to the Musuo people, a branch of the ethnic Naxi group who retain the vestiges of a matriarchal society. The wedding custom of the Musuo people is noted for its exotic ceremonies.

The quiet and limpid Luguhu Lake, the second deepest in Yunnan, lies farther north in the prefecture. Around the 48.45-square-kilometers body of water are more than 20 villages, inhabited by the Mosuo people, a branch of the Naxis, who live in log cabins and a matriarchal tribe where property and children belong to the women who run the market and control the purse strings.They refer to their canoes as " mangers for raising pigs " . Legend has it that when the flood came their ancestors, busy feeding the pigs, leaped into the manger and escaped by an ark of their own.
