Lijiazui is a traditional village in the remote mountains of Southwest China's Sichuan province. Located in Wujiao Mongolian township of Muli Tibetan autonomous county in Southwest China's Sichuan province, it still preserves a matriarchal family lifestyle. Over 70 households, belonging to 26 clans, are living in this beautiful mountainous place.

Over recent years, Lijiazui village has continuously perfected its tourism infrastructure with the construction of the Shangri-La ecological tourism circle in Muli county. The local tourism industry helps to increase villagers' income, and consolidates the achievements of poverty alleviation.
