Erhai Lake, Dali
Categories: Forests, Nature & Parks
Enjoy the mountainous vistas of Erhai Lake, sandwiched between the Cang Mountains and Dali City. Take a cruise on the calm waters for great photo ops, or rent a bike to explore the lakeside's array of restaurants and small waterfront towns. As you explore, take a moment to observe the local fishing methods, which involve the use of cormorants trained to capture fish and bring it back to their owners without swallowing or damaging the catch. A visit to Erhai Lake represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Dali tourist route planner to plot your vacation.
