Village of Naxi Culture  

The Yuhu Naxi minority village is one of the few traditional villages at the foot of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. Located 15 km away from Lijiang, this small village can appreciate the culture and traditions of its people. Here the houses are built with processed stone and mud locally called monkey head. The very rural village street is bordered by house gates that are carved with simplicity. Everything here reveals the peace and quiet of the Naxi people. The open-minded Naxi people happily welcome foreigners to their village.

Hiking in the Village

Located at the foot of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, the Yuhu village is ideal for hiking, walking or riding on horseback. It is possible to go to the Yuhu pond where the view on the mountain is extraordinary. Also, several hiking trails lead visitors into the mountains. With any luck, any visitor will have the chance of coming across the animal or plant species identified by the famous anthropologist and botanist Joseph Rock.
