Sangzhaoli Festival of Limi Ethnic People in Yongde County,Lincang

Limi is a branch of the Yi Minority living in the remote mountainous areas of Yongde County of Lincang Municipality. Each lunar February 15 sees the Limi People head to Qingren Valley for bath and romance, and offer gifts to each other. It's locally believed that any romance and then marriage on this day will lead to eternal love and domestic harmony. 

Subconsciously, the Limi People believe that marriage is based on loyalty and purity though husband and wife are not totally confined to each other because both of them have set aside space for either emotion or freedom. Sangzhaoli Festival is just the "outlet" for this kind of space; meeting ex-girl/boy friend is not deemed "disloyalty" by both husband and wife. However, life has to go back to normal after Sangzhaoli Festival is over.  


Sangzhaoli Festival has served as a platform and window to showcase the culture of the Mili People.
