The morning mist with the light from the rising sun creates a blanket of orange glow mist over the water surface. The water is clean and welcoming as hills fringed along the border of the Lugu Lake. Forest can be found along the lakeside with deep and lush green, retaining its beauty and the nature surrounds. The lake shores are inhabited by many minority ethnic groups such as Mosuo, Norzu, Yi, Pumi and Tibetan. They lives in simple houses and clustered among each other in a small village setting.
