Colorful Minority Culture
The diligent and intelligent people of different nationalities in Honghe prefecture have created the colorful and splendid minority culture during the long history. Different ethnic minorities have different housing, costumes and courtesy. The unique wedding ceremony, the magnificent view of the terraces of rice-fields, the fluyingmillsvig "Gezaza", the crowded "Zalete", touring in flower mountains, the tobacco-box dance and the happu "Axi" dance in moonlight are all full of poetic charm and a painting grace of nationalities' customs in south Yunnan.
The terrace fields, a wonder among the Ailao mountains, are like numerous silver ladders, climbing from the bottom of the mountains to the top. They are not the natural gifts but the carvings done by the generations of the intelligent Hani minorities.
