Jinzhu Zhuang Nationality Village

 
Located 20km from Heping Township, Guilin, Jinzhu Zhuang Village(金竹壮寨) is the first Zhuang village which will greet you when you arrive at Longsheng Rice Terraces. Construction began during early Qing Dynasty (1616-1911). Clumps of Zhuang Stilt Houses cling to the steep slope of rice terraces and are enveloped by mist and cloud. Isolated and serene, it is a fairyland on earth.

By far, there are over 700 Zhuang villagers live here. The folk residences here are typical stilt houses, which prevail among Miao, Dong and Zhuang people and are common seen in south China. Stones are used to lay the base or erect pillars, while the rest of the house is made of firs. The first floor is used to shelter livestock, the second floor functions as living rooms while the third floor is designed as attics, where grains are stored. The pointed gable is holed to let in air and light. Each household is encircled with a drainage trench and is accessible by  flagstone pathes. Crystal-clear spring is channeled into each family by bamboo tubes or stone grooves.
