This beautiful, peaceful, alpine-like lake in Yunnan Province and the Yanyuan County of Sichuan province. The border between the two provinces goes through approximately the middle of the lake. There are many ancient villages in the area, and many of the Mosuo inhabitants live similar to the lives of their great-grandparents, but most have electricity now and a few modern day conveniences.
The lake waters are clear and calm. They appear to be a beautiful deep blue colour. In many places along the shore, we saw brightly coloured boats. The most common colours were red, blue, and orange.
While driving our car on the road a few hundred metres from the lake, we stopped to photograph a Mosuo child, his mother, and grandmother, all carrying loads of branches on their backs. We got invited to their home, where they had meat hanging.
On Lugu Lake Road, we stopped at a village market. Many of ladies were dressed in their elaborate festive Mosuo-Minority costumes.
At many locations on the lake, we saw boats anchored out in the water.
The Mosuo minority people of Lugu Lake are noted for their “walking marriages,” where most couples do not marry or live together, and where the Mosuo women may have children fathered by different men.

Photo Tour Day 3
"How is it possible to call our today's journey?" you ask. The Answers will be different, but still similar, someone would say the old town or the ancient street or something of the sort. But I would like to name my day which has passed there, quite differently, something bright, memorable. So Here's an example of "inside View" or "Slice of history in Haikou". It would be wrong to compare with Europe, but you look at these photos, not at all of course, but you can catch some of the architectural elements used in the construction of houses that set a certain rhythm. The merger of East and West is not the first time proving to us what beautiful places we can see, enjoy the beauty. Some of the corners with cozy tables surrounded by flowers can convey the feeling that you are sitting somewhere in Europe, but note that instead of a cup of espresso and apple croissant from the chef, you will get coconuts, yes, coconuts, because only with the help of this Tropical fruit or walnut, as you prefer))) you quench your thirst and fill yourself with vivacity and freshness for new encounters, dating, because you should just turn from the big street and the world appears in new colors. Yes, not all agree with me, there are those who will ask: "and to whom it is interesting?" But it is all in its perfect, I believe that it is a zest, exclusive for those who have turned off the path in search of new, interesting, in search of adventure. Stay with us, be closer to the Hainan island and it will open for you new horizons) #hainanlife #Fallinlovewithhainan @hainanlife #traveltochina #hainan #hainanisland @shone_haikou

"Vivere lontano da casa non è per tutti. Devi avere un cuore grande, grande a sufficienza per far da valigia a tutto ciò che lasci: le gioie e i dolori, gli amici e gli amori. Questo bagaglio cardiaco che batte anche quando tocchi un suolo che non ti appartiene, o quando sei steso su un materasso che non ha la tua forma e un cuscino scomodo e guardi il soffitto chiedendoti dove stai andando. Amici che non sono i tuoi, una città che non è la tua... Devi avere un cuore grande, grande a sufficienza da far spazio a cose nuove. Un cuore che temi a volte gli altri si siano scordati perché il presente ha preso il sopravvento nelle loro vite. Un cuore grande, ma forse non troppo forte. Allora è lì che si ferma un attimo. Va in arresto, ti confonde e non sai più chi sei. Così ti stendi sul materasso, che ora ha preso un po' la tua forma e il cuscino è più molle da una parte. E ti chiedi chi stai diventando più che dove stai andando. Perché quando parti, più che muoverti verso una destinazione, vai verso un destino, il tuo".
☀️🤟🏼 RISE and SHINE!! Dat is even fijn wakker worden met dat zonnetje. 😇😇
➡️ Koffer pakken en een rondje fietsen met m’n hubby voordat ik weer 12 uur in een vliegtuig mag zitten. 🇨🇳😬😬 Aaarghhh!!! 💉💊💊
KEEP YOU IN THE LOOP 🧐
A wonderful panorama viewing from the highest place made a good feeling and refreshing, the result for who has climbed there. Awesome place with an imposing presence and importance to the region. The Monastery itself is beautiful, full of gold and gold painted architecture, beautiful embroideries, and is alive with the activities of the monks.We found it very good to see fresh depictions rather than the faded versions one often sees in temples. There're several large halls and marvelous statues, and all the best part are within the 3 inner halls of the monasteries. There are, if you explore, a number of significant halls off to the side and behind the main buildings where one can meditate in quiet. Follow our local guide that will explain the significance of this monastery and the stories on the wall, we were be enthralled, be respectful.🏯🏯🏯
Tips: Photography is prohibited within the inner halls. But there're the beauty and grandness are, worth it!
