Lugu Lake in Chinese
 
Lugu Lake situated between Yunnan and Sichuan Provinces. It surfaces 51.8 square kilometers and located on the altitude of 2680 Meters, is one of the most famous and rare unpolluted highland lakes in China. The water is so clear that you can even see the bottom of the lake 12 meters from the surface.
 
Lugu Lake surrounded with dense forest. With the fresh air and peaceful quiet atmosphere, it is said to be one of the less destroyed natural preserved districts among China. Inside this crystal-clear lake, you can see easily there are some fishes swimming around in particular the unique species of “Lugu belly-splitting fish”.
 
Besides the unique speciality of the fish, Lugu Lake also lived in some rarely seen minority, the Mosuo, a branch of the Naxi Minority with a population of about 15,000. People named here as the “Kingdom of Oriental Women”.
 
The Mosuo people still remain some remnants of the matriarchal society nowadays. Men and Women are not bound by marriage, each living at one's mother's home. Men work at home during the day and spend their night with the women they love in their homes. This unique matrimony gives more freedom to men and women in their relationships in particular they can choose to unite or separate by their own desires. Its uncommon feature of their marriage custom makes this ancient and harmonious place more extraordinary.
 
Lugu Lake mixed the scenery of both natural and cultural, especially the Mosuo minority has its own characteristic customs; that makes this mysterious lake to be the extremely rare World Cultural Heritage among China.
