What people are saying:

Niba Village is a famous Tibetan village in Zhuoni County. Most of the villagers live in the mountains. They are mostly wooden houses. When you look around, they are stacked on top of each other, and the village faces south. The Tao River tributary Cheba River is in the village. Zhong Wei Yi flows. The original half-agricultural and half-pastoral lifestyle is still preserved here. The residents of the village work at sunrise and rest at sunset. And there are many centenarians here. The oldest old in the village lived to be 114 years old. I believe that it is not just Zhuoni’s natural and pure living environment that prolongs life. The purity of mind brought about by Tibetan Buddhism is another. Longevity gene. Niba Village rises on the mountain and lives by the water. The mountains on both sides of the village are full of dense forests, and there are grass beaches of various sizes on the open land. The houses in the villages are similar in form. The dwellings in the villages are very dense and the houses are connected by walls. All the people in Niba Village believe in Tibetan Buddhism and retain a strong religious atmosphere. A white pagoda by the river is a place where people in the village conduct religious activities. Around the tower are corridors of Mani barrels. Some large Mani barrels are tied with ropes woven from wool of various colors. The other end of the rope is tied to the pillars. Pull the rope and the Mani barrels will rotate and pull a few at the same time. One rope will turn several Mani buckets at the same time. This is for Tibetan elderly people. These wool ropes allow them to sit on the ground and pull the rope to complete their prayers. Here, faith is deeply rooted in the hearts of every villager, and it is reflected in every detail of life. Every day, it will come to the turning gallery to turn the prayer tube. Tips for visiting Niba Village: 1. There is a shuttle bus from Zhuoni County to Niba Village, which departs daily through Gongba Temple and Malu Town. It is a private contractor. You need to go to the station to ask about the time and location of the bus. 2. If you want to experience Tibetan village life in depth, it is recommended to live in Niba Village for one night to fully experience the scenery and lifestyle of Niba Village. The houses on the mountain are relatively simple and the conditions under the mountain are better. You can make Tibetan meals with the owner. Accommodation is calculated per person, and the price is negotiated with the owner. The safest way to insure is to ask the secretary of the Niba village branch to lead the way to the Tibetan home. If necessary, you can leave a message in this travel blog to ask for the contact information of the secretary of the Niba village branch. 3. Niba Village does not produce vegetables. You can buy vegetables at Zhuoni’s bazaar and bring them there. The noodle soup, stewed vegetables and Tibetan dumplings made by Tibetan housewives are delicious. Warabi pork is a local specialty, but it takes a long time to make it. If you eat it, you need to book in advance. 4. Niba Village is still a virgin land that has not developed tourism. When you go here, you should have a respectful and courteous attitude, respect the habits of local villagers' production, life and religious activities, and don't chase villagers, especially the elderly, to take pictures.
