Borrowing its name from the waterfall which drapes like a silver curtain, Yinshui Dong Village is a place where you will get lost among the ocean of greenness and be carried away by the heavenly voices: the intoxicating Kam Grand Choirs of Dong people, who are born talented singers and dancers. Loaded with memory of over one millennium, the name of this village is history. As early as Tang and Song dynasties (618-1279), the ancestors of Dong people have settled down here. After several generations’ development, clusters of villages surfaced one by one and flourished. Yinshui Dong village has experienced ups and downs during the long history. In 1737, Wu Jinyin, the 82th leader of Dong people staged an uprising against the Qing government’s reign, which was applauded and joined by Zhuang, Miao and Yao people. In no time, they gathered a formidable army and headed for Guilin, the capital city of Guangxi province. Threatened and frightened, Emperor Qianlong soon dispatched an overwhelming army to eliminate them. This event marks as the turning point of both Dong people and their thriving happy land. Dong people was forced to leave their villages behind and it was not until 1993 did they return again.

Backed against the green mountains and enveloped by thick forest, Yinshui Dong Village has undergone much-needed facelift and sparkles again. Nowadays, it serves as an ideal landscape therapy site, where you can meditate, hike, explore the landscape and architecture or demystify Dong people’s art embodied by Kam Grand Choirs, a world-class intangible cultural heritage ratified by UNESCO in 2009 as well as its abundant festivals relating to harvest, singing, labor, remembrance and love. As for those food-obsessed friends, you will find Yinshui Dong Village a very appealing place thanks to its rice wine, sour fish and smoked pork.
