Nanhua Miao Village

Written by Kelly PangUpdated Jan. 4, 2021

Nanhua Miao Village is southeast of Three Trees Town, about 13 kilometers from Kaili. It is situated on the bank of the beautiful Bala River and faces the Lu (Rong) inter-provincial highway across the river.

Village houses are dotted around the mountain and the diaojiao buildings (wooden houses propped up by wooden supports with ladders leading up) are like tier upon tier of peaks, one rising higher than the other, surrounded by green forest. The village is well known for its beautiful natural scenery and interesting minority customs.

In Nanhua, there is a close social network with some enjoyable public spectacles. Gabaifu (a kind of opera) contains some wise traditional philosophy, and the Miao have their own beautiful songs, drum performances, and wedding ceremonies. All these have attracted both Chinese and foreign tourists, interested in the authentic Miao identity.

The village population is 100% Miao. The main distinctive clothing around the Bala River is the long Miao skirt. Characteristic silver jewelry is in the shape of a big horn. Popular celebrations are "the Sisters' Festival" on the second day of the second month, "the Zongzi Festival" on the fifth day of the fifth month, "the Eating New Things Festival" in the seventh month and "the Miao New Year" in the tenth month; all according to the lunar calendar.
