The Zhangjiajie Tujia Customs Park is located in Yongding District, Zhangjiajie City. Built in 2000, the park covers an area of 5 hectares. In this replica of a typical Tujia village, you can learn interesting facts about the Tujia, including folk customs, architecture, food, agriculture, military, and art.
The main attraction is the village square, where performances such as the Maogusu dance, a ceremonial dance that was part of a sacrificial ceremony, are performed. Another highlight of the park is the 9-story wooden Jiuchongtian Heritage Hall, built on a steep slope without a nail. This fact brought the building an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records. It contains thousands of Tujia relics and is, so to speak, the museum.
During the walk through the park, you will pass several wooden houses that show various aspects of the Tujia ethnic group, from unique embroidery to cultivation techniques to wine brewing.
