It is the largest village of Miao (Hmong) of the world , and all the buildings & houses are keeping its original appearance from the ancient times. stilted buildings, Fengyu bridges, as well as Lushengs, make people felling about the atmosphere of live museum. Of course, from dances & songs could offer you the experiences of Miao nation’s culture lasted for thousands of years.
At the gate of Xijiang Qianhu Miao Village, you’ll see the plaque of “西江千户苗寨” and go straight for 1.5 km by walk (or take a battery car if you like) then you’ve arrived the village. When entering, there’s “entering wines” by the locals, but it is not with necessity.
Then you will see lots of whitesmith’s workshop. It is believed to bring good luck on wearing silver jewelry for Miao people, so almost every man in this village could make jewelries by silver. When buying some as souvenirs it is better to valuate by weight of silver.
The village is divided into 2 parts by the river, left bank at the gate is pedestrian street of commerce, the opposite bank is sight-seeing platform.
You can’t miss Guzangtou (the apartment of the Miao Clan leader), within which there are holy article of the sacred Drum(just like Holy Lance in Christian culture, this drum was used by the former kings of Miao)
