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
- 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!
