June is the peak season for tourism in Xijiang Qianhu Miao Village, where tourists can experience the most authentic Miao culture and customs.
Arrive at Xijiang Qianhu Miao Village, come down from the parking lot and see the gate with the plaque “Xijiang Qianhu Miao Village”. From this gate to the village, there is still a 1.5-kilometer road. You can take a battery car or walk. After passing this 1.5 kilometers, I saw a gate similar to the one in the parking lot with a plaque of “Xijiang Qianhu Miao Village”. This is the real arrival at the village.
First drink the gate wine, and then enter the village. The first thing you see is the commercial pedestrian street, which sells a wide range of special Miao products. The most interesting ones are Miao silver jewelry. Konbai, Dagou Township, Leishan County, near the Miao Village, is a well-known silversmith village. Almost all the men in the village are masters of making silver jewelry. Technology, Miao silver craftsmanship is exquisite.

Or walk along the Baishui River to see the wind and rain bridge with eaves to shelter from the wind and rain, and the short and narrow trestle bridge paved with wood.
the viewing platform
Walking to the end of the stockade is an idyllic scenery, even in peak season, few people come to this area. There is a battery car station for the viewing platform across the river. Let’s go to the viewing platform. The road is not long, and there are a few points along the way where the view of the scenery is good. Arrive at the viewing platform and wait for the night to fall. The drama of Xijiang has just begun. Thousands of lights lit up from the eaves of the wooden stilted buildings, dotted with stars, outlining the outline of the entire Miao village in the shape of a bull’s head. It is hard to imagine a village in a mountain with such a brightly lit scene. In the early morning, I came to the viewing platform again, the Miao Village was shrouded in mist, the first ray of sunlight turned the wooden houses into gold, and the smoke from the kitchen rose up, and a new day began again.
