Zouma Town Picture

Zouma Town

Zouma is a small town west of Chongqing City. Zouma means 'horse-trotting' in Chinese. Merchants in ancient times frequently passed through Zouma on their way to the mysterious Tibetan Plateau. Because of this, people in Zuoma made their living transporting goods on horseback. In 1992 Zuoma was named the 'Home of Folklore' by the city of Chongqing. Zuoma Folklore is under consideration for UNESCO's Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity status.
