Xiaozhai Village is a mountain village where Red Yao minority inhabited. It has a history of hundreds of years since it was built in the Ming dynasty. The stream cuts through the stockade, which will make you recall a poem,” Under a small bridge near a cottage a stream flow.” In the morning, cooking smoke curls up from the kitchen chimneys, famers walk out of the village on the stone trails with a herd of cows following, what a peaceful scene of a paradise!
Compared to other mountain villages in Longji area, Xiaozhai Village is much less visited due to its poor accessibility and remote location. But once you get there, you will find the terraced fields, characteristic folk houses, local conditions and customs, ethnic culture, rice farming culture and the unsophisticated villagers are really worthy.
