As one of the main settlements of Tujia nationality in China, the Enshi Tujia and Miao Autonomous Prefecture has created a great many intact Tujia traditional villages with its undulating hills and gullies as well as its relatively closed geographical environment. At present, such kind of Tujia ancient village with rich historical and geographical landscape resources is being violently impacted by tourism development. By setting the typical village of Enshi Prefecture in Hubei China as the research object, this Paper examines the overall landscape of the village landscape resources, and focuses on the significant influence and inter-relationship of tourism development on the village life landscapes, production landscapes and human landscapes. Under the premise of sustainable development, this Paper gives the specific protection significance, status quo, issues and suggestions in respect of the above landscapes and explores from there the way for utilizing and developing the landscape resources of the Tujia traditional villages in Enshi Prefecture.
