The local Miao people here stick to their traditional costumes dating back to thousands of years. Though guns are strictly regulated in China, men in Biasha are permitted to carry and use guns as to protect their tradition. Therefore, Biasha is called as the last gunslinger village in China and this draws more and more tourists here. (Xinhua/Tao Liang)
