Lugu Lake is called the "mother lake" by the Mosuo people.The lake is also well known in Chinese travel pamphlets as the region of  ¡°The Kingdom of Women¡± and ¡°Home of the Matriarchal Tribe¡±, this last name highlighting the dominant role of the Mosuo women in their society. The marriage rites of the Mosuo people are known as ¡°Azhu Marriage¡± ceremony and this unique aspect of their social culture has given the title ¡°Exotic Land of Daughters¡± to the area. It is also known as "A Quaint Realm of Matriarchy." The Matriarchal and Matrilineal society of the Mosuos is also termed the ¡°Women¡¯s World.

The Zhuanshan Festival (the Festival of Circling the Sacred Mountain) which falls on 25th July of the lunar year is the traditional festival of the Mosuo people. On that day they would dress in their Sunday best to worship the Gemu Goddess Mountain (the Lion Mountain) and pray for the Goddess' protection. It is also a time for horse racing, wrestling and antiphonal sining. The young people take the chance to search for their lovers, whom they call Axia.


From early morning on all around Lugu Lake and on the Yongning plain, the Mosuo get up and on their horses to the small temple on the western side of Lion Hill, the mountain overlooking Lugu Lake from the north.


At various points on the way to the temple they bring their offerings to the local spirits. But once the dues are done at the temple, it is time for a good picnic and some dances.
