Heshen Festival of Lisu Ethnic Minority

Heshen Festival(盍什节) of Lisu Ethnic Minority in Yuanmou County,Chuxiong

"Burying lovers with river sand" is one of the most age-old courting means for men and women of Lisu minority. When "Heshen" Festival draws near, young Lisu people in Fugong and the neighboring region will come in groups to the extensive beach of Nujiang River and look for their own spouse freely.

Once a man and a woman fall for each other, the man will dig a pit on the beach and summon several male buddies to carry the lady of his heart to the pit, and then bury her body with fine sand. After that, the buddies will dash away, and the man will remove the sand immediately. In this way, he has expressed his adoration to the lady.
