Story #9: Yuanyang Hani Terraces in Yunnan (云南元阳哈尼梯田)

This story is the second part of a two-part story on Yuanyang Hani Terraced Field (元阳哈尼梯田) in Yunnan. Do check the previous story on the scenic areas in Yuanyang and important information for planning a full day itinerary to check out the various sights. This post continues from part one and visits the life of the ethnic minorities on a market day in Sheng Village (胜村).

Let's have a glimpse of Pugao Old Village (Pugao Laozhai, 普高老寨), where I stayed when I was in Yuanyang Rice Terraces, before going to Sheng Village (胜村) for its market day.

Pugao Old Village (普高老寨)

Pugao Old Village is located in Duoyishu Scenic Area (多依树景区). I explored the old village on a misty day. Most of the houses had been upgraded with yellow bricks but still preserving a rustic feel.
