What people are saying:

My rating: [stars] [stars] [stars] [stars] [stars] [stars] Wuhu is really too watching the weather! Yesterday it rained and the lake was not beautiful at all. The whole thing was gray and a little disappointing. Fortunately, today is a sunny day. I went to the grass sea and saw the watery Yanghua. It is quite special. Inner, if you have seen a lot of lakes, Lugu Lake is really not too beautiful. And whether it is from Lijiang or Xichang, the road is not very good. I am tired by car and feel that the Lugu Lake has not been built yet. The infrastructure is a little worse. The last two are Lugu Lake on a rainy day.

Additional Information


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!
