        Jishou, the capital city of Xiangxi Miao & Tujia Autonomous Prefecture, will celebrate its annual Siyueba Festival in Dehang Miao Village from April 26 to 30, 2017. 

        Siyueba is a traditional festival observed by Miao ethnic group nationwide on the eighth day of the fourth lunar month. The Festival has been included into the third batch of national intangible heritages by the State Council of China. It is observed in worship of ancestors and in memory of a Miao hero. 

        On this day, Miao people will dress up in traditional attire and wear silver ornaments to attend an ancestor-worship ritual. Various folk art programs will be staged, including climbing a ladder of knives, beating Miao drum, holding Miao singing competition, and playing on a swing for eight people.

    08:00—10:00 Lanmen Wine (Guests are invited to drink the local rice wine before entering the village. This is the courteous way to greet guests in Dehang.) 
    10:00—11:30 Wunuo (Exorcism) Stunt Show 
    11:30—12:30 Singing Competition

        The word dehang in the Miao language, means "a beautiful canyon." Located 24 kilometers west of Jishou, the village lies in the deep mountains of the Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau and is a 2-hour tourist bus ride away from the Phoenix ancient town.

        As home to some 100 Miao households, the village is particularly famous for its picturesque landscape and unique local customs. Hundreds of ancient styled wooden diaojiaolo, towering mountains, steep-sided cliffs, numerous waterfalls and verdant forests make the small village extremely attractive. And how the Miao people celebrate their festivals is another attraction.

    How to get there: 
    1. You may take a tourist shuttle heading to Dehang at Jishou Railway Station, which will leave every half an hour. The earliest bus departs at 6:30 a.m. at both terminals. The last bus leaves at 6:00 p.m.

    2. You can take a taxi in downtown Jishou to Dehang scenic spot.
