  1. Nixi-Black-Pottery-Village-1

This village is 30 km away from Shangri-la city. It's famous for black pottery made by its local villagers. There are 148 families here totaling about 800 people. Over 50% of the village families are black pottery makers. The history of making pottery in this village dates back over 3000 years. The traditional way of making pottery is handed down from generation to generation. In ancient times, villagers use pottery to trade for rice, salt, tea, oil and everything they need for their livelihood. They use clay to make hot pot, tea pot, and fire pot, vase, incense burner and butter lamp. In this village tourists not only can learn how to make pottery, but can also enjoy the beautiful scenery and learn about Tibetan daily life.


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.
