"I am Yunnan, Yunnan Nujiang, Nujiang Lushui City, Lushui City, Liuku, Liuku Lisu ......"
A magic Rap, which triggered the whole network to follow the parody, also brought attention to the worldly Rokku.
Liuku has a long history and is known as the "first town on the Nujiang River". /Vision China
The town was originally the capital of the Yunnan Nujiang Lisu Autonomous Prefecture, known as the "first town on the Nujiang River", with the vast majority of the population being Lisu. 2021 saw the change from a town to a street under the city of Lushui, but for locals, Lushui is far more famous than Lushui.
Rokku is located at the southwest border, hidden in the gap cut longitudinally by the Hengduan Mountains. The rushing Nujiang River divides the city into two, with the old city on the east bank and the new city on the west bank.
The Hengduan Mountains, cut into pieces by mountain ranges, breed the most difficult roads and the most beautiful landscapes. /Planet Institute
The Gaoligong and Biro Snow Mountains face each other from east to west, silently subduing the Lisu, Han, Bai, Yi, Nu, Dulong and other ethnic groups living here, with a diverse population embracing various faiths such as Catholicism, Christianity, and Tibetan Buddhism.
The Nu people still retain the custom of fishing in a piggy bank boat. /Shake @GongsanListen to the Rain
The road around Liuku has always been treacherous, and if it is to save time, people often subconsciously avoid this passage from Yunnan to Tibet and choose other routes instead.
Chongyang Bridge, Xiangyang Bridge, Nujiang River Bridge over the Nujiang River, before they appeared, most of the local people rely on the zip line overhead "fly" to the other side.
Before the emergence of the bridge, people had to rely on the zip line to cross the river. /Vision China
High mountains and big rivers running side by side, monasteries and churches living in harmony have created a route that every self-driving traveler wants to conquer - Pinchaca.

Noboribetsu Onsen, 13 kilometers north of Rokku, is a local favorite, and the open-air environment may bring you a different kind of wild experience. From the first to the third day of the first month of each year, the Lisu people have been taking baths for over 400 years as a carnival, where the whole family "meets" and uses the hot spring water to wash away the year's filth and usher in an auspicious new year.

If the bathing pond makes you blush, the Lisu's "Mountains of Swords and Seas of Fire" will make your heart beat faster.
During the New Year's period, the Gwashi Festival is an important festival for the Lisu people to kick off the year. During the festival, the Lisu people will set up a ladder with the blade facing upwards on a large wooden pole, and brave young people will follow the steps of their master and climb upwards barefoot on the blade ...... This is the "Upper Knife Mountain".
The performer climbs upwards with bare feet on the blade, which is thrilling. /Vision China
The "fire" is the burning charcoal laid flat in front of several Lisu young people do not hesitate to jump into the fire pit until the flames are completely stamped out.
And before you have a chance to praise their bravery, the moving folk songs want to show you the softer side of the Lisu people.
For the Lisu people, music is everywhere, and people often use songs to speak and answer for themselves in their lives. /China Post
Lisu folk songs were included in the first batch of the national intangible cultural heritage list in 2006. Songs fill every corner of life, and people sing them to endorse and answer them, moment by moment, from a distance.
Lisu folk songs include wood scraping, pendulum time and youye, which are either bleak and deep, or relaxed and lively, each with its own characteristics. Nowadays, people can enjoy the heavenly polyphonic a cappella performances in Lukku, but some of the old songs are facing the worry of having no successor.
The Lisu folk songs were inscribed on the first national intangible cultural heritage list in 2006, and today visitors still have the opportunity to enjoy their folk songs and dances. /Vision China
It's hard to "leave" after coming to Lukku - there's always a part of your heart that stays here and makes you willingly sing: "I'm from Yunnan, Yunnan Nujiang ......"
