Through the ages, Zhuanshan Festival, also known as Worshiping Mountain Festival, has always been the grandest event for Mosuo people living near Lugu lake, and is normally held on the 25th of the seventh month of the Lunar Calendar. As the only living matriarchal society, mosuo people are rigged out in their best to worship the Gemu Mountain, praying for a bumper grain harvest and prosperity of their descendants in the coming years.
