A fisherman and his fishing cormorants at the Li River. Along this river you can witness Cormorant Fishing. A Cormorant is a very large bird known to feed on fish and is precisely apt at the practice of fishing. This has been practiced in various parts of China and Japan for over centuries making it almost an ancestral way of catching fish. 🐟 Photo by @amdprasad

🇫🇷 🎌 Yakata-bune 🎌 Après notre tour à Yufuin, nos « buddies » nous ont emmené manger sur un bateau, les yakata-bune, avec option yukata (différent de yakata, attention) pour les femmes ! 👘 On a pu goûter à énormément de spécialités japonaises en petites portions, une forme de repas que l’on nomme « kaiseki ». Légumes frits ou vinaigrés 🥒, sashimi, sushi 🍣, tempura 🍤, bouillons 🍲, et même un poisson entier frit 🐟... il y en avait pour tous les goûts !🥢 ~ En prime, on a pu voir une demonstration de pêche au cormoran, l’ukai 🛶 : des pêcheurs attachent un anneau autour de ces oiseaux quand ils sont encore jeunes pour que leur gorge reste mince et ils s’en servent ensuite pour récupérer les poissons que les cormorans pêchent mais ne peuvent avaler... c’est un peu horrible, je vous l’accorde 😅 Mais c’était intéressant d’apprendre le principe de cette tradition vieille de 1300 ans ! 🕰 ~ Merci encore @apubuddypr ! 🙏🏻 ~~~ Bon, sinon, je suis enfin/déjà sur le chemin du retour depuis Shikoku... et j’ai horriblement mal aux genoux ! (Merci les quasi 80km de marche en 6 jours 😅) Vous avez des solutions miracles pour les soulager ? 🙈 ••• 🇬🇧🇺🇸 🎌 Yakata-bune 🎌 After our trip to Yufuin, our “buddies” brought us on a boat for dinner, the “yakata-bune”, with the possibility for women to wear a yukata (different from yakata, be careful) ! 👘 We have tasted a lot of Japanese specialties in small portions, a form of meal that is called “kaiseki”. Fried or pickled vegetables 🥒, sashimi, sushi 🍣, tempura 🍤, pots 🍲, and even an entire fried fish 🐟 ... there was something for every taste ! 🥢 ~ And with that, we saw a demonstration of cormorant fishing, the ukai 🛶 : fishermen put a ring around the necks of these birds when they are still young to make their throats remain tiny, and then they use this process to extract fishes that cormorants have caught but cannot eat... it’s a bit horrible, yeah 😅 But it was interesting to learn about this 1300-year-old tradition ! ~ Thanks again @apubuddypr 🙏🏻 ~~~ Apart of that, I’m finally/already on my way back from Shikoku... and my knees really hurt ! (Thanks the almost 80km of walk in 6 days 😅) Have you any miraculous solution to alleviate them ? 🙈

One of the reasons, or the main reason I made this trip to China was to meet these old fishermen. In reality they no longer fish with the cormorants birds that made them famous in the world, but you can still find them in remote areas if you have the right connections. Una de las razones, o la razón principal por la que hice este viaje a China fue encontrarme con estos viejos pescadores. En realidad ya no pescan con las aves cormoranes que los hicieron famosos en el mundo, pero todavía se pueden encontrar en zonas remotas si usted tiene las conexiones correctas. ____________________________ #cormorantfisherman #cormorantfishing #cormorant #cormoranes #oldfisherman #portraitphotography #portrait #nikonasia #travelchina #china #yangshou #xingping #xingpingvillage #mexicanphotographer #mexicantraveler #picoftheday #natgeo #natgeoyourshot #natgeoadventure #natgeochina #nikon #travelphotography #travelling #chinatravel #naturephotography #amazing_shots #amazing_shotz #loves_china
Finally got to witness #cormorantfishing after soooo many years of failed attempts. Pretty cool! The #cormorants are at the end of the those strings... if you can see them. Hahahha. #fire #sparks #gifu #oze #ozeukai #ukai #visitjapan #canonM5 #nagarariver #sekicity
One of the last remaining cormorant fishermen in XingPing, China. Times have changed significantly in the area, and these days the fishermen only get dressed up in their traditional garb for tourists. It was a spectacular sight, and we were privileged to have a few hours on our own with this man. He spoke to Tom in Chinese, and threw the fish in to the river for the cormorants to hunt with a laugh. A wonderful insight in to the ‘old ways’ and traditions that we’re losing our grip on. Taken whilst filming for @pertexfabric And @coldhouse_ on the Elemental Journeys series. . . #fisherman #fishing #cormorant #china #xingping #tradition #rural #cormorantfishing #lantern #night #river
In communities around the world, animals have been used in hunting and fishing activities. From dogs in British fox hunting to Eagles in Mongolia, some of these activities have become widely known. Cormorant fishing in China has seen a surge of interest thanks to social media. Cormorant fishing has been practised in China for over 1000 years. Trained Cormorant's are used to capture fish and return to the boats while the fisherman can use nets to capture extra fish as well. Like many other traditional hunting methods, this technique is beginning to die due to modernization. What traditional techniques have you observed during your travels which are disappearing? #China #WSEtravel #thisissustainable 📍 Li River, Guilin Shi, China 📷 photo credit: @onceuponapassportstamp 🇨🇳 China 🇨🇳 Cormorant fishing is a traditional fishing style of the past, for the most part, along the Li River. The cormorants are mostly used in fishing demonstrations for tourists now. Even though it is a bit of a spectacle now, it is still so interesting to have a glimpse into the past. Ancient fishermen trained these birds to dive into the water and return to the raft with their catch. The bird is prevented from swallowing the bird by a ring placed around their neck and the fisherman can retrieve the fish. #LiRiver #fishermen #Cormorantfishing #cormorantfisherman #instachina #Travelchina #visitchina #beautifulasia #travelanddiscover #stayandwander #landscape_lovers #traveldeeper #welivetoexplore #theglobewanderer #travelsoutheastasia #welltravelled #passionpassport #instapassport #roamtravels #theworldguru #aroundtheworld #livetravelchanel #iamatraveler #traveltheworld #beautifulseasia #adventureseeker #wanderstheworld
The ancient tradition of fishing using domesticated cormorants along the Li River in Guilin is all but dying out. Unable to compete with modern fishing, this 1,300 year old technique is performed these days for the benefit of tourists.

Cormorant fishing 🎣is a 1,000 year-old tradition found in Southern China. This practice involves sending trained cormorants into the water to catch fish 🐟and bringing them back alive into the fisherman's net. Can anyone make a smart guess as to how the fishermen stop the birds from swallowing the fishes 🤔? 📸: @andybeales . . . . . . . . . . . #traveltheworld #neverstopexploring #instaworthy #explorer #traveller #wheretogonext #wheretogo #travel #heritage #traditional #aroundtheworldtravel #southeastasia #seasia #southeastasiatravel #southeastasiatrip #expats #expatsinchina #expatlife #china #chinatravel #chinatravels #chinaexpat #chinaadventures #chinatrips #fishing #cormorant #cormorantfishing #guilin #bird #birds

A few shots taken over a weekend with Cormorant fisherman in China. The fisherman use the birds as we would use dogs to fetch their catch. The fisherman tie a knot round the bird’s neck to stop them swallowing the fish, at the end of the day the birds are given a few of the fish as their reward #photography #guilin #fisherman #cormorant #landscape #landscapephotography #china #cormorantfishing #guangxi #yangshuo #china #travel #traveller #travelphotography #lonelyplanet #beautifuldestinations #portrait #river #reflection #lamp #chinainsider #travelchina #wonderfuldestinations

To see the cormoran fishers was a dream since we saw the documentary Wild China from @bbcearth. So happy that I found them now on this riverbank close to Xingping. I really recommend everybody to watch this docu. You will be so impressed by the beauty of this country. . . . #xingping #guilin #yangshuo #china #fisherman #cormorant #cormorantfishing #cormorantfisherman #wildchina #fishing 🎣 #explorechina #bbctravel #travelchina buddhism #worldtravel #itchyfeet #wandering #travel #wonderfulplaces #wanderlust #walkingglobe #backpackers #backpackersintheworld #travelphotography #explore #adventure #locationofficial #traveltheworld #travelrepost
