About Lugu Lake, Lijiang

Lugu lake is a wide expanse of still water surrounded by beautiful greenery. The lake is located 200 kilometres from Lijiang. The lake is surrounded by hills. The forest around it is dense. The water is clear enough for you to see that it is full of fish. The lake is shaped in the form of a horse-shoe. Legend says that the lake was formed when a female spirit cried after a lover left her behind with just a hoof-print of his horse. Her tears filled the print and that is the Lugu lake. By the lake, lives a matriarchal society called the Mosuo. You can spend a night here and get to know the interesting lives of these people. Highlights include:

  • The five islands
  • Migratory Birds
  • Boating
  • Visit to a local family
  • The Fire Party
