Nan Gang Ancient Yao Village [Qingyuan Ctiy]

Yao is an ethnic minority in China that has their own custom, dress, language, living style and architecture. Nan Gang Ancient Yao Village is reputed as the oldest, the most distinctive and the largest Yao village in China that can trace back to over 1,400 years ago.

Nan Gang Ancient Yao Village was built along the steep mountain which was over 800 meters high.
