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

Lugu Lake, Lijiang Reviews - Write a Review

  • Absolutly the most beautiful place I have been so far. Pristine water, great weather, away from the crowds, calm. And the views... Just amazing. If you plan to go there, stay in Luoshui, as it is most developed of all the towns around the lake (others are really basic and in construction). When you're there, rent a bike and cycle around the lake - the distance is around 45km, but the surface is mostly flat. It took me 6h to complete the trip. The sun there is quite strong, don't forget about sunscreen.

  • Beautiful, well worth the trip.

  • The highly recommend spot, with perfect natural view. The transport is kinda awkward, and Chinese is the only way to communicate with the local.

  • This is a place where everyone should go!

  • 瀘沽湖的水特別清澈,山的形勢一般,除女神山外其他山甚至有部分光禿情況。對於住在台灣的人,這樣的景緻並不特別,有點類似放大版且水比較清澈的日月潭。但為了看到這樣的景緻卻由麗江來回需要9小時車程,如果時間充足可以去,不然麗江周邊太多景點選擇了。如果想體驗摩梭人文化也不要報麗江這的旅行團,因我我是訂購有名的X程旅遊號稱無購物站,卻一樣遇到強迫購買銀器的行程,千萬不要買,價錢比麗江古城貴一倍以上,據說也不是真的雪花銀,如果不買還會當場指責沒有愛心。如果真的想去,自己找車去,記得搭豬槽船、吃吃當地的蔬果。綜合以上,如果你前往理由是因嚮往瀘沽湖的環境優美、人心純樸、想了解傳統摩梭文化,去瀘沽湖參觀可能無法滿足你心中期待。
