Black Pottery Wares Of Tangdui Village

Tangdui, in Nixi Township of Shangri-la County, is a small Tibetan village nestling along the popular adventure route from Shangri-la to Deqin in Northwest Yunnan. Tangdui Village is the most “Shangri-la” part of Shangri-la. As a tiny village standing by green grassland on which flocks of yaks, sheep and horses graze, it gives a sense of timeless tranquility. However, Tangdui Village is best known for its traditional black pottery, a miracle among Tibetan handicrafts.

About 70 percent of the families in the village are engaged in pottery-making that has a long history in Tibet Area (it can date back 4,000-5,000 years ago). What they make here are mostly household wares such as pots, jars, stoves, basins and even soap saucer. Thanks to the fine quality, even people from Tibet travel here to get black potteries. Nowadays many visitors would always make a stopover here, perhaps buying some wares or just watching how the locals deal with their ancient art.
