Trip Moments

Wuyuan County in Yunnan is the main area for the Yi people in the country, while Wengding Ancient Village is the most traditional Yi village. Wuyuan is adjacent to Shan State in Myanmar, and Weng Ding is said to be the last primitive tribe in China. A "Ava people sing new songs" let the world know about this minority. If you want to understand the Yi culture, Weng Ding must come.
Wengding Ancient Village is not big. There are 98 Yi villagers living in the area, with a total of more than 470 people. People are relatively poor, but the folk customs are simple and warm and hospitable. Women in the village like to smoke, and smoke does not leave their hands. It is a local culture. Perhaps living in the plateau, the ultraviolet rays are strong, the skin color is deep, and the local is black.
Weng Ding, in the proverb, means the place where the clouds are lingering, and the meaning of the spirit of the alpine Baiyun Lake. Walking through Weng Ding, the first thing I saw was the Zhaimen and the big banyan trees, which were the same for a hundred years. The two lines in the same place constitute the real sense of the Zhaimen, and together guard this village with hundreds of years of history.
The houses in the village are the houses of the Yi people's thatched houses. The tallest building is the king's palace. Yu Wang is the leader of the village and has a high prestige.
Traditional Yi people's residence is a pole-style bamboo and wood building. There are two types in the big aspect. One is a single-story oval house with a short roof on a single adult. Adults and widows live in such a house. The other is a common two-story building. Livestock downstairs.
