  1. Avoiding crossing the fireplace. The Yi ethnic minority regard fire as the most important thing in their lives.

Because Zhenxiong is a small county, there is no 5-star or 4-star hotels. If you need these 5-star and 4-star hotels, you can go to Zhaotong for 4-star hotels and to Kunming for 5-star hotels. Although the county is small, the hotels are clean and confortable. If you want to find some hotels, the following are my recommendation.

Hexie Hotel(和谐饭店) Tel:0870-3146888

Address: in the east part of Xihuan Road in Zhenxiong county(镇雄县西环路东段)

Jinye Hotel(金叶酒店) Tel:0870-3139888

Address: No.1 on the Nantai Road in Zhenxiong county(镇雄县南台路1号)


Zhenxiong's transportation system is poor now. There is no airport and train station. So people need to take long-distance buses from Kunming and Zhaotong. And then do not take the unlicensed cab or taxi when you stay in Zhenxiong.
