Liannan Sanpai Yao Village

 
Perched in the middle part of Sanpai Hill, 11km south from the Liannan County, Guangdong, Sanpai Yao Village (Yao Nationality Village of Sanpai, 连南三排瑶寨) embraces postcard-perfect natural scenery and eye-opening ethnic culture. It is accredited as a retreat combining the richest and most complete Yao culture in China, a place for those intrepid travelers. Epitomizing the history, culture, art, customs, architecture, attires, singing, dancing, sport and entertainments of Yao people, Sanpai Yao Village stands out as one of the best places in China to sample their primitive millennium-old lifestyle.

Take a bus from Liannan County, you will follow the ups and downs of the winding path along the rolling mountains. Finally, you will behold an expansive grey compound embedded along a steep slope. Groups of folk residences pile up layer by layer. Isolated and forgotten, this place looks just like a lost world. Inside of this village, a labyrinth of laneways, aged folk residences and courtyards dotted with brewery mills, oil extracting mills and tofu mills spreads out in every direction, while in the middle air, there hangs a web of bamboo pipes.

Sanpai Yao Village houses a hall, where Yao will perform singing, dancing and celebrate grand festivals such as Panwang Festival and Cai Ge Tang. The two-meter long Long Drum it shelters can produce very sonorous voice. Sanpai Yao Village faces a vast valley interspersed with an army of hills. Take a bird’s-eye view, you will be overwhelmed by the spectacular scenery.

Top things to do 



1 hike around to take in the enticing natural scenery

The upper two layers can be reached by foot, while the lowest layer is only accessible by boat. Filled with stalagmites and stalactites, this cave has lured adventurers and poets since ancient time. Along these grotesque limestone formations, one can perceive dozens of inscriptions. Meandering for over 1500 meters and passing three gorges along its way, Lianzhou Underground River promises strong visual impact and thrilling feelings. Though flowing quietly, this 1.6-meter wide and 1 to 7-meter deep subterranean river emits impenetrable air. Equipped with 18-seat boats and helpful guides, you can appreciate this underground fairyland in a safe, romantic and extraordinary way.
