Langde Miao Village

IMG_2312

The last destination on our Guizhou trip was Langde Miao Village. Check out the posts about Xijiang and Leigong Mountain too!

You can take a bus to Langde from Kaili (25km) or Leishan (15km). The village was built in the Yuan and Ming dynasties, having a history of more than 600 years. Currently there are 306 families and 1377 people living in Langde.

It’s an excellent destination for a day trip. Far less tourists than Xijiang, but easier to access than villages on Leigong Mountain. Langde consists of lower village and upper village, between them are a small hill and rice fields. You can find food to eat in the village, but I didn’t see any signs for accommodation.

I recommend Langde Miao Village to anyone traveling in the area, hope from the photos you can see why.

    Thanks for sharing also this story! I went to Guizhou last year, and I loved this place. I have not been to langde, but I love to go next time. Have you visited some Dong villages in that area as well?

    Are there any hotels or guest houses at this place? Is it possible to spend a few days at the village?

    The village is quite small so one day is enough to explore it, but of course if you want to just spend a few days there and relax, that sounds amazing too. The villagers do have some guest houses at their homes, just ask around.
