Minority People's of China

There are 57 minority peoples in China with the Han people being the greatest in numbers. Above you see only three of them. Top is the Zhrung people living mostly in south central China province of Guizhou. In the middle photo are the Naxi people mostly living in and around LiJiang in Yunnan province. The bottom photo is a Mosuo woman which is the only matriarchal society in China living around Lugu Lake which is north of Kunming in Yunnan province. Many of the minority people live in south central China with Yunnan province probably having the greatest number of groups. The minority people are very proud of their nationalities and wear their distinctive clothes with pride. The Zhrung women in the top photo all wear their hair in the same style. The color of their clothes and design often characterize the difference in their nationalities. We can design a tour just for you to visit many of the minority people with their varied dress and learn more about their customs and daily living. We have had 25 years experience in travel through out China. Tours to China is our business and Chinese culture is our interest and passion. Let us do a tour just for you to your interests.
