About Lugu Lake

The highest lake in Yunnan, Lugu Lake is a spectacular alpine lake framed by mountains on the border between the Ninglang and Yanyuan counties. It’s known as the “Mother Lake” by the ethnic Mosuo people, who inhabit its shores and are renowned for their matriarchal traditions.

Photograph the magnificent landscape of Lugu Lake from the shore, then jump aboard a local boat made from thick logs to explore its sparkling waters and five islands. Go birdwatching on Heiwaw Island and walk along the stone path that links Lugu Lake’s central peninsula to a tiny island just offshore.

Want to learn about life for the Mosuo people? Embark on a cultural visit to one of the local villages or visit the Mosuo Minsu Museum on the western shores to discover why Lugu Lake has become known as the “Kingdom of Daughters”. See their uniquely-designed houses and experience first-hand the Mosuo’s long-established folk traditions.

Getting there

Lugu Lake is around 1.5 hours’ drive from Ninglang Luguhu Airport, which has regular services from Chongqing, Kunming and Chengdu. Lijiang is around five hours drive from the lake, with regular buses making the journey.
