According to records, before the Tang Dynasty, Yamugou was called "Ghost Valley", also known as "Hidden Dragon Ditch". Later, due to the growth of a god tree in the valley, it resembled a stone like wood, and the whole body was clear and the flowers were different. It can exorcise the evils and cure the disease, and eat the fruits. It can make the couples who have not been bred for many years, and attract countless people from different places to worship them. They are called "Yaki", which means "tree god" in the ancient Tujia language. Therefore, it was named "Yimugou" and it has been used ever since. Yamugou has been hailed as the first ditch in Guizhou since ancient times.
Rainy days to play Yamugou must pay attention to anti-skid, especially when taking pictures under the stream. Yamugou's physical requirements are not high, and it takes about one and a half hours to get back and forth. The
Yumugou Scenic Area is very close to the Fanjing Mountain Scenic Area and can be used together. There is a local folk museum at the entrance to Yamugou, and you can spend more time interested in local folk customs.
