[Take the first start] Walk around the Xijiang Qianhu Miao Village, experience the Miao customs, see the lights of the family ~

Spread the love

When I talked about Guizhou in the past, everyone would think of Huangguoshu Waterfall first. But for my big Sichuan, Huangguoshu is very beautiful, but it is not the special one. If there is a different style, it must be located in the Xijiang Qianhu Miao Village in southeastern Yunnan, one of the largest Miao inhabited villages in China and the world. Wandering in the Xijiang Qianhu Miao Village, the taste of the Miao people’s humanities and customs, the food here makes me linger, and fortunate enough to see a visit to the party.
     D1 Chengdu~Xijiang Qianhu Miao Village
    Take a flight to Kaili, then take a bus to Xijiang Qianhu Miao Village. When I arrived in the middle of the night, I went to the hotel to rest directly.
    
     D2 Langde Shangzhai
    When I got up in the morning, I went to the balcony and instantly surprised my eyes. My room is an excellent viewing platform. I haven’t started to experience the Xijiang Qianhu Miao Village, I have already seen its beauty.
    
    
    
    After breakfast, go to Langde Shangzhai, a more simple and more original Miao Village, tickets for 60 yuan. There are only a hundred people here, and the Olympic torch has been passed here. It is more able to experience the original Miaozhai life.
    
    
     Barrier wine
    Entering Langde Shangzhai, there will be “12 channels of wine.” This is an ancient welcome custom, and it is also the most grand and best performance of Miao. There are 12 links along the path of entering the village. There are two or three Miao women in each section holding a horn cup. When guests pass, they must drink a few mouthfuls.

     Dragon Festival performance
    Going up the stone road to the big reed field in the center of Langde Shangzhai, the daily costume show is here, we watched a grand performance of the Dragon Festival.

The Miao compatriots regard the dragon as the god of the wind and rain, as a disaster relief, prayerIn the coming year, good luck, good weather, good harvest, good health, and wealth.
    
    
     Catch the fish
    After lunch, Langde’s rice fields in Shangzhai launched a fierce competition for catching fish in the fields, which is a farming culture with a very southeastern characteristic. Two people are a group, and the caught fish can be used to make a hundred-pot dinner at night.
    
    This gesture is also spelled!
    
    Full of a basket of fish posing, it seems that there is something to eat at night.
    
     Making a hundred pots
    In the evening, everyone came to the river and started a “hundred pot banquet” using the fish that they had caught. Wash pots, kill fish, wash vegetables, cut meat, and chop firewood. . . Everyone did their job and completed a big meal together.
    
    Langde Shangzhai is not big, but it is very original. If you are not in a hurry, you can stay in the stockade for one night and feel the most simple and natural life of Miao. In this fast-paced life, it is so simple to enjoy the meticulous life that is slowed down, simple and beautiful.
