Basha is a touristy Black Miao village in southeast Guizhou, close to the town of Rongjiang. I went here with Jeremy Breningstall in the the winter of 2010. While this village was very touristy, they have an entrance fee, and many of the local women would turn their backs to you as soon as they saw you with a camera, the fake luxheng festival they put on is entertaining. We stayed in the hostel at the entrance to the village. It wasn’t too bad even though we had a room without a bathroom, but this didn’t matter since we were the only tourist staying in the village that night. The owner of the hostel fixed us some hot pot which was really nice since it was pretty cold that night.
