The Naxi  are an ethnic group inhabiting the foothills of the Himalayas in the northwestern part of Yunnan Province, China. The Naxi, along with Bai and Tibetans, traded over the dangerous overland trading links with Lhasa and India, on the so-called Tea and Horse Caravan routes.

  1. I had the privilege of watching this eight years ago. The pictures cannot portrait the impact of the whole experience… It is also directed by Zhang Yimou ; the soundtrack is deeply powerful.
    At the time I think the show had as a subtitle ” Liziang impression” ( which is a place worth portraying here, in my humble opinion).
