Inlaid at the border of Yunnan and Sichuan, more precisely, the Lugu Lake has two parts: Yunnan Lugu Lake and Sichuan Lugu Lake. The areas around the lake remain a laid-back, idyllic place that makes for a great getaway in domestic tourism. There are two surprising things: the local Mosuo practice the matriarchal system and the traditional walking marriage custom.
Highlights of Lugu Lake
1Lugu Lake: Ascent to the Lake, which sits at 2690m, is via a spectacular switchback road and the first sight of the 50-square-kilometer body of water, surrounded by lushly forested slopes, will take your breath away.
2Walking Marriage Bridge: With a history of 100 years, the Bridge is the only bridge on the lake, locating in the Caohai area. Its overall length is more than 300 meters and it is made of the wood.
3Lige Peninsula: Situated at the north of Lugu Lake, the Lige Peninsula is surrounded by water. In the early morning, tourists can enjoy the beautiful mist on the Lake from Lige Village which links to the peninsula with a 2-meter-wide road. Most beautiful panorama photos of Lugu Lake is taken from the top of the mountain behind Lige Village.
4Liwubi Island: Expect to head for Liwubi Island, the largest island in Lugu Lake, by the “pig troughs” ship, and experience the unique Mosuo's cultures.
