Lugu Lake is a beautiful place, which has become a tourist attraction for people in recent years. So, what are the precautions for traveling to Lugu Lake? What are the taboos of Mosuo people by Lugu Lake?
Lugu Lake is known as the "Pearl of Plateau". The islands in the lake are Tingting and Yuli, with different shapes, lush trees and picturesque green. In the meantime, the water and the sky are the same, clear as a mirror, dotted with algae and flowers. The Mosuo folk song between the pig trough boat gliding slowly on the blue waves and the floating dry water makes it more simple and peaceful. It is a virgin lake far away from the noisy city and not polluted.
