Lashihai Lake Culture
The Lashihai Lake watershed is home to two minority ethnic groups, the Naxi and the Yi. Around Lashihai Lake lives Naxi People, who show such enthusiasm towards life, and nature. They love festivals and find joys through simple things in their simple primitive life. They worship nature, and have different festivals and ceremonies for gods of Nature, God of Wind, God of water. And the Black Yi people, who are still keeping the best traditions of their own, grow seas of potato on the mountain side. While from a poorer class, Yi women are the only women who walk with straight back, full of dignity and elegance.
