With independent yard, neat roads, and broad square, Yi Village in Shilin has urban comfort and convenience and retains the most traditional Sani lifestyle.
Happy Yi village
Walking in the village, you may follow the crowd to watch thrilling bullfighting in the bullfighting town; you may see a group of cattle and sheep back from graze; you may also encounter villagers who sing and have Dasanxian dance on the square. You may press the shutter at a bull that has fighting training, or you may be attracted by a senior who, dressed in traditional ethnical costumes, weaves or embroiders calmly at the doorway. Lively and quiet, ancient and modern - perhaps a good trip should start with guesthouses with features.
Hospitable Yi people
In 2010, Wushu Village, an original Sani village in Shilin Scenic Area, moved to a new place - Yi Village. The new village covers an area of 484 mu and is located beside Shilin Middle Road, the scenic road linking Shilin County town and Stone Forest Scenic Area. It is 1 kilometer from the scenic are and 9 kilometers from Shilin County town. More than 90% of the population of over 1,000 in the village is Sani people of Yi ethnic group. There are traditional courtyards, decoration with bull head and torch, bright color, farming in front of and behind houses, and domesticated animals, retaining a strong Yi village atmosphere.
