The Stone Moon, called “Ya Ha Ba” in the language of Lisu minority, is situated among the lofty peaks of Gaoligong Mountain Natural Reserve in Fugong County, Nujiang Prefecture. It was formed by water erosion though its altitude is 3,330 meters above the sea level. On the way for trekkers to witness its grotesque, Mi O Luo is another exotic place to experience Nu minority culture.

One of the best things about visiting the Fugong Stone Moon is the chance to interact with the Lisu people, one of the minor ethnic groups of China. The Lisu people speak the Lisu dialect, which is part of the Sino-Tibetan language system.The Lisu people are experts in making wine from corn, sorghum and tare seeds. If you want to take a sip of this Lisu specialty, make it a point to visit the Fugong Stone Moon during autumn, as this is the time when the wine is fermented and served to locals and foreign visitors.
