Introducing Lángdé

The terrific Miao architecture and cobbled pathways have turned this village into the first port of call for tour buses. Elaborate singing, dancing and reed flute performances are usually staged, after which the hard sell of local clothes and jewellery begins. But don’t let the commercialisation put you off. The locals are friendly and there’s a terrific 15km trail along the Bala River that will take you through several Miao villages.
