SHUHE OLD TOWN

Shuhe Old Town

Lijiang, China

The locals know it as Dragon Spring (Longquan) Village and it was pronounced by UNESCO as a World Heritage site. Although there is no exact date on when the settlement was established, it is one of the first Naxi villages in the area. It is believed that Shuhe is the reputable MU family’s birthplace.

Shuhe used to be along the ancient tea route, which might one of the reasons Naxi chose this location for the settlement. Today, you can visit the Ancient Tea Route Museum. Shuhe Old Town today has a central square market where the locals sell leather and fur.
