Was with a tour group and we stayed 1 night in Hemu Village. A humble village with some picturesque spots. Some say this is a photographer’s paradise, but that is if you know where are the spots to go. (I have no idea where the spots are, I think my accommodation is slightly further from the scenic areas) During my... More

An interesting village to learn the culture of the ethnic minority. Beautiful landscapes which made every photo looked so pretty. The villagers are very friendly and accommodating. Take note roads at the village can be muddy and messy. But that's what made this village authentic, able to see the real life style of the villagers. I climbed up the hill... More

paradise for photographers. spend a couple of days here and relax. the only problem is transportation: really too far and inconvinient from other spots. Hours of car journey. but when you take a glimpse of Hemu, you will find it worthwhile.

the place is very quiet in winter, just a couple of visitors you may find in the village, most of the accomodations are closed. don't expect too much of the scenery. dont expect a very friendly culture there, since it is commercialized and locals are facing hardship of their lives. the most warmful thing in the village is that there...
