Nude-bathing resort reopens in southwest China

BEIJING, June 8 (RIA Novosti) - Chinese authorities have lifted a six-year ban on nude bathing in southwest China's Yuping Mountain resort, the china.org.cn portal said on Monday.

The nude-bathing area was closed six years ago on the grounds that it allegedly did not comply with "the cultural and ideological progress."

The region has a long-running tradition of nude bathing. According to a popular legend, a beautiful young woman named Lu Wan was abducted by robbers and jumped off the Mozigou's Feishui Waterfall to defend her virginity.

Since then, people have been bathing nude in the area to pay their respect to the woman, whose body was never found.

"Because of this beautiful tradition, we don't feel many objections from locals to reopen this nude bathing place," the portal quoted Li Jun, the head of the Yuping Mountain Scenic Area, as saying.

The 1-km-long nude bathing area is naturally divided by hills, naturally creating a male and female area.

The resort has introduced strict rules to protect the visitor privacy, including a ban on photography and video recording.
