Liuku Overview

Liuku Town, located in Lushui County, is the first town of Nujiang Grand Canyon in Nujiang Prefecture. Liuku Town is closed to Biluo Snow Mountain in the east, Myanmar in the west, Shangjiang Town and Laowo Town of Lushui County in the south, Daxingdi Town and Luzhang Town in the north. Liuku is the cultural, polictical and economy center of Nujiang Lisu Autonomous Prefecture. The lowest elevation in Liuku is 300meters, and the highest 800 meters. It is 612KM from Liuku to Kunming.

The Lisus mostly reside in Lushui County in Nujiang Lisu Autonomous Prefecture in Yunnan Province. The Lisus have their own language. The Sword Pole Festival is their grandest traditional holiday, and also reflects their worship of nature.The Sword Pole Festival is held on the 15th day of the first lunar month in commemoration of an ancient Han general who helped the local Lisu people drive out the invading enemy.


There's not much to see in Liuku itself; it is merely a transit point for visits up to the Nujiang Gorge in Fugong and Gongshan. Liuku lies on the Nu River, which eventually meets up with the Lancang and the Dulong rivers to form the Three Rivers Natural Reserve, farther north.The landscape up here is amazing and most people head to Liuku to carry on north toward Nujiang Gorge. Sights include Gaoligong Mountain, Biluo Snow Mountain, Single Dragon River, and Heipupolo Pass. Ethnic minority groups inhabit the region in their austere, ancient abodes where there are minimal tourist facilities.
