Popular Attractions in Ninglang

Lugu Lake
4,738 Reviews
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!

[Daughter Country Inn recommended | a lazy little fairy in Yunnan] I know, five years away, Wuhu is still so beautiful and moving. At 4:30 in the afternoon, the boat was stopped. The villagers pulled the colorful pig trough back to the dock and docked them. No one was watching, and there was no charge for taking pictures. Although the lake on the drowning does not look like a blue on the lake, but the length of the lake is long, and one afternoon at the lake, time is worth wasting on good things. Departing from Lijiang, passing the Axia Tunnel, Wuhu is in front of you, and Sanjia Village is the first stop from Lijiang to the Wuhu area. Returned to Penghu again, avoiding the most densely populated waters and Riggs, and chose to develop the three villages as the stagnation point. There is a hotel in Sanjia Village which is particularly conspicuous. The room with a lot of glass windows is very open. Its name is Yunshan Meidi, 30 meters away from the lake, facing the lake in front of the lake. I can also see that the other side of the bank is the Luojing village I lived five years ago. The mattress of the inn is the top of the bed that I have slept in these years. The comfort level can be ranked in the top three. When I sleep in the sun, I wake up naturally. This is the correct way to open in Lijiang. Yunshan Meidi Every room is double-decker + super large-scale lake view glass window, the lighting is obvious to all, the portrait is nothing to say. In Wuhu, in Yunshan Meidi, seems to feel that they are still the little girl who loves to take pictures. (smirking)
