When the morning mist mixes with sunlight, the lake becomes hauntingly orange and glows like a pearl, but when the surrounding hills cast their shadow, they turn the fiery water green. Local villagers gladly offer their guiding services for a reasonable fee and welcome all guests who want to learn about the community's lifestyle and traditions.

Lugu Lake Reviews
泸沽湖有种原始的美，但现在已经渐渐的没了。当地人旅游开发意识极强，提供的服务粗放不讲究。但风景确实不错。导游非常好，口若悬河讲了一路。 more »Luguhu has a kind of primitive beauty, but now it is gradually gone. Local people tourism development awareness is extremely strong, the provision of services is not fastidious. But the scenery is really good. The tour guide was very good and spoke all the way.
泸沽湖 第一次来 不后悔 也许是开发的比较晚的原因 这里的环境保护的很好 水很清澈 住了一晚 两天时间给自己划划船发发呆 天气很好 可以完全放空 more »Luguhu for the first time not to regret maybe the development of the relatively late reason here the environmental protection is very good water very clear live a night two days time to paddle their own boating hair dazed weather is very good can be completely emptied
This is amazing place and The highly recommend spot, with perfect natural view. The transport is kinda awkward, and Chinese is the only way to communicate with the local.
This is a magical place, lake is changing colours. Can't describe that with words
