Residents in Xisuo village, an ancient hamlet in Southwest China's Sichuan province, have benefited from the rural tourism that has taken shape in recent years by tapping its unique Tibetan and Tusi culture.

On one side of the Suomo river running through the village sits a cluster of traditional houses built with stones against a hill, specific to Jiarong Tibetan group, one branch of the Tibetan ethnic group. On the other stands a five-story Tusi chieftain manor erected during the late Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), in Zhuokeji town, Aba Tibetan and Qiang autonomous prefecture.
