The village is named after the river, “Ondui” means Shangzhai. Langde Shangzhai is named because it belongs to the upper part of Langde Land. The costumes of the Miao people in the village are characterized by long skirts, so they are also called “long skirt Miao”. Langde Town is endowed with unique ethnic tourism resources.
