Photographer's Note

Of the two famous villages in the Longji region, Dazhai is still much more primitive, less visited and touristy. Daily groups visit the neighboring Ping'An, and do not come to Dazhai. Perhaps it is so because one needs to walk uphill for over an hour to get to any of the guesthouses. Nowadays, however, there are many porters for backpacks, but also those who carry lazy tourists themselves.
Although the village inhabited by the Yao minority still lives its own life, it seems that there are plans to build a gondola to a big hotel on top of the village, whose construction was underway when this photo was taken. This will definitely add to the bustle and tourist crowds.
