Located about 15 kilometers North of Lijiang Old Town, the Yuhu village, belonging to the Naxi minority, is the last village of the valley; and is situated at the foot of the Jade Dragon Mountain in Lijiang. 

Yuhu Village is the last village in the Lijiang Basin at the foot of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. 
The houses were made of a unique stone called "monkey head" by Naxi people. The stone is something between stone and mud. With the reflction of the stone on the snow mountain, houses made of :monkey head" look even more natural and beautiful.

There is a Yuhe Lake beside the village. Water in this lake comes from he melted snow in the mountains. The holy water from this holy mountain of the Naxi makes this small village very mysterious.

That is why Joseph Rock chose this place to live in when he came in 1922. He lived in Lijiang for 27 years. We can still find houses and things that he used when he lived in Yuhe Village. From 1924, a great number of photos and articles that he had taken and written about Lijiang were published in National Geography, an authorative magazine in the U.S. He took Lijiang as center and center, and continuously introduced the wonderful scenery of west Yunnan to the western countries.

The famous botanist Dr. Rock came here to study the plants of the Jade Dragon Mountain and he fell in love with the region, its people and its culture, and decided to live there. He lived in Yuhu village for 27 years. From 1922, he started a huge research work on the local Naxi minority; he took many photos and wrote many papers for the magazine "National Geography".

It is possible to visit Dr. Rock’s house (15 RMB per person). If you make it in Yuhu, we advice you to visit our friends of a Naxi local family, and why not staying there for a night, as they also provide accommodation. It is basic but a very warm and welcoming place. For more information, see here: Yuhu Guest House 
From Yuhu, it exists several horse back hikes climbing the Jade Dragon Mountains (Price is around 21-40 USD according to the length and path). You can also walk around by feet until the small lake of Yuhu; from there you'll see very pretty view of Jade Dragon Mountain. Another path climbs through the Mountains till the remote village of Wenhai, where you can stay overnight. The hike lasts 4-5 hours, a local guide is necessary to carry out this hike.
