Gathering and bathing in public hot spring pools is a unique tradition in Nujiang Lisu Autonomous Prefecture, southwest China’s Yunnan Province.

On the second day of the lunar new year, Lisu people gather and bath in hot springs as they believe bad lucks of the previous year would be washed away. 

Women go and prepare for meals when men are bathing and men go to collect firewood while women enjoy the bath. 

The ceremony now has developed into a grand event for singing folk songs, making friends and holding various competitions.
