Billed as one of the most authentic Torch Festivals in Chuxiong, Gaofeng Torch Festival has become another big ticket event.
Billed events include bullfighting and sword fights. In the days leading up to the event plenty of goats are being slaughtered in Gaofeng: a good place if you are into mutton, not so good if you are vegetarian.
To accommodate visitors, the festival is held three days after the Chuxiong Torch Festival. There is little accommodation in Gaofeng, so best stay in Lufeng and travel up for the day.
