"We started a small farm, a little workshop and a mini market based on the destination's conditions," says Shuanglonggou's deputy general manager Wei Zhongping.
The farm is run by 13 rural households and satisfies their basic food needs. The workshop hires residents who've escaped poverty to make souvenirs, Wei says.
The mini market hosts distinctive eateries run by locals.
Shuanglonggou has also restored nearly 100 original stilted wooden buildings in recent years and encouraged local people living in poverty to work and live in the scenic spot.
