About Lijiang

Listed as a World Heritage Site, Lijiang Old Town was a chaotic and bustling transit and transfer point on both the famous Silk Road and the Tea Horse Road. The ancient city never had city walls. Lying between the river and the mountains, the landscape is magnificent. Inside the old town, the roads are paved with slick cobblestones. The quaint buildings, small arched bridges and beautiful plateau scenery have attracted the interest of countless visitors. The relaxed pace of life and unique Nakhi culture are also part of the Lijiang's charm. The area surrounding the old town also has many beautiful natural landscapes such as the magnificent Yulongxue (Jade Dragon Snow) Mountain and the idyllic Lashihai Lake. If you like ancient towns, Shuhe or Baisha Old Towns are sure to impress with their tranquil breath of life.

4.7/5
5,570 Reviews
Lake
Lugu Lake is located between Ninglang County of Yunnan Province and Yanyuan County of Sichuan Province. It is named as such because it is shaped like a gourd. The lake is about 2,600 meters above sea level and locals see it as a beautiful pearl shining among the hills of the Northwest plateau. The Mosuo people living on the lake are one of the key highlights of the attraction. They are one of the few matriarchal societies remaining in modern world as women play the role of production and management, holding the principal position in society. There is no marriage, men stay in the women's home as mates called 'Axia' and the intimate relationship lasts as long as they like. While on board a local boat, you will notice that the lake is crystal-clear with swarms of seagulls flying over the water. The surrounding scenery is like a painting that is worth seeing at least once a lifetime!
