Qingman Miao Village
Introduction to Qingman Miao Village (青曼苗寨)
The Miao Villagers are always enthusiastic when visitors visit and warmly welcome all guests to their village. One of the highlights of the village has to be seeing the Miao ladies dressed in their beautiful and colorful dresses along with their traditional headdresses and silver accessories.
Today, the village still retains most of its traditional and cultural crafts such as embroidery, textiles, handmade silverware and cloth dyeing. All traditional Miao clothing and garments are still handmade, cotton growing and spinning yarn to make textiles is still common in many Miao families.
One of the best times to visit Qingman Miao Village is during Sister’s Festival. During the Sister’s Festival(15thMar-17thMar in Chinese lunar calendar), you can see all the young single ladies of the village dressed in their traditional clothes and headdresses for the big day where the young men from the village choose their future brides. The day is eventful with Miao singing and dancing and you can even taste the Five Color Rice made from natural dye of flowers.
