Upon arrival, taking a little wooden boat from the Daluoshui Dock is the most perfect way to tour Lugu Lake, for you can not only appreciate the mirror-like lake view, but also enjoy the whisper of the soft breeze. The sculling boat drifts slowly in tranquility, passing islets dotted on the lake surface. After 20 minutes’ cruise, you will disembark and have an onshore trekking on Liwubi Island, which boasts lush plants, and towers exotic Tibetan Buddhist temples and white pagoda.
Afterwards, take the boat again to return to Daluoshui Village. The village is the inhabitation place for the Mosuo minority people, where you could further explore Mosuo people’s folk culture and customs. Walking (male-leaving) marriage and matriarchy are the biggest highlights. Muosuo people maintain the last matriarchal society in China by leading an almost isolated life. Women dominate the family, and they can date with any man they wish to; their mating custom could be one of the most open relationships in the world. Women earn the money and raise children on their own, while their male mates usually don’t need to take responsibilities for the kids. Descendants are accustomed to following the surname of their mothers. Tonight you will stay overnight at the lovely Shilili Inn.
