What people are saying:

The lakes of Yunnan's nine plateaus are better protected and one of the lakes with good water quality. Early promotion of marriage, what is chaotic. Of course the culture is unique, but this pure land is the most attractive to me. Hope to draw on other lakes overexploited, then back to the protection of the past car. Retain this green water, this nostalgia!

Additional Information

Introduction

Lugu Lake is located between Ninglang County of Yunnan Province and Yanyuan County of Sichuan Province. It is named as such because it is shaped like a gourd. The lake is about 2,600 meters above sea level and locals see it as a beautiful pearl shining among the hills of the Northwest plateau. The Mosuo people living on the lake are one of the key highlights of the attraction. They are one of the few matriarchal societies remaining in modern world as women play the role of production and management, holding the principal position in society. There is no marriage, men stay in the women's home as mates called 'Axia' and the intimate relationship lasts as long as they like. While on board a local boat, you will notice that the lake is crystal-clear with swarms of seagulls flying over the water. The surrounding scenery is like a painting that is worth seeing at least once a lifetime!
