Lugu Lake

2690 meters above sea level, Lugu Lake is a gem located at the mountainous area on the border of Sichuan and Yunnan Province. About 240 km northeast of Lijiang, the lake occupies an area of 50 square kilometers with the average water depth of 45 meters. The lake is sparklingly clear, dotted with 5 islands.

Mosuo people live around the lake, which is a small tribe that is considered a sub clan of Naxi people. They are a matriarchal society and seek to maintain the heritage. Taking a large dugout canoe at the smooth lake rowed by a Mosuo girl is very interesting; she will sing a beautiful folk song to the visitors. The lake area is an absolutely an undisturbed from the bustling outside world.
