著名景区英文介绍:泸沽湖

泸沽湖),亦称永宁海、左所海、勒得海、落水海子,是一个高原淡水湖,位于云南省北部、四川省西南部,湖泊东南面长满水草的大片湿地称为草海,广阔的水域称为亮海,湖面海拔2690米,是中国第三深的淡水湖。泸沽湖是川、滇两省共管的湖泊,湖水透明洁净,属中国Ⅰ类水质,但环境问题也相当严峻。沿岸有中国知名度较高的摩梭人,他们的走婚婚俗在旅游界有很大的影响。泸沽湖风景秀丽,旅游业发达,是云南和四川两省的省级旅游风景区、中国国家重点风景名胜区。湖边的居民主要为摩梭人,也有部分纳西族和普米族同胞居住。摩梭人至今仍然保留着母系氏族婚姻制度。

Lugu Lake lies 200 kilometers (approximately 124 miles) from the center of Lijiang City, on the border between Ninglang County in Yunnan Province and Yanyuan County in Sichuan Province. The lake is like a beautiful pearl shining among the hills of the northwest plateau in Yunnan.

The lake is in the shape of a horse’s hoof - long from north to south, and narrower from east to west. The vista of the lake changes constantly throughout the day. The morning mist mixed with the light of the rising sun gives the lake an orange glow covered by mist. When the light of sun causes the hills to throw their shadows onto the water, the lake is emerald. The lake is calm and dark green in the evening when the sun sinks, and is peaceful when night comes. Gentle wind blows and water ripples.

On the lake there are five islands. They are different sizes and are like green boats floating on the water. Heiwawu Island, Liwubi Island, and Lige Island are most notable. Heiwawu Island is in the center of the lake and has a variety of birds living on it. The smallest island on the lake is Nixi Island - an oblong rock covered with shrubs and moss. Besides the five islands, there are also three peninsulas and an island which is linked to a seawall on the shore by a path paved with small stones.

Mystery and charm surround the lake, partly because it was once an unspoiled place and still retains much of its totally natural beauty, but mostly because the Mosuo people who live there form a matriarchal society. There is no marriage. Men stay in the women’s home as mates called ’Axia’ and the intimate relationship lasts as long as they like. Children are brought up by women, and use the surname of their mothers. Families are composed of the members of the matrilineal kin. Women operate production and management, and hold the principal position in the society, forming a modern day ’woman’s kingdom’, which adds mystique to this place.

The lake is encircled with hills. The water is clean and inviting, with fish swimming in it. The forest around is dense and the air is fresh. This is a place that is little tainted by modern industry - the natural beauty is retained. The weather is pleasant - it is cool in summer and warm in winter. All the seasons are as comfortable as spring, but the best seasons to come here are spring and summer when the hills are emerald, the flowers are in bloom and the birds are singing happily.
