Xuehua Yi Ethnic Village in Yulong County, Lijiang

Xuehua Yi Ethnic Village

Xuehua Village consists of Enjiding Village(恩吉定村) and Runanguo Village(汝囡国村).
Xuehua Village is about an hour’s walk from Wenhai (from Wenhai to the north). The village is scattered on the alpine meadows halfway up the mountain of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. The people living here are the Yi people who depend on the mountains and eat in the mountains. The Yi people here have almost no other food except potatoes. The altitude is too high and the climate is too bad. Except for potatoes, there are few other crops that can survive here.
