Enjoy a scenic walk at Black Dragon Pond Park, part of Lijiang's World Heritage Site. Nestled at the foot of Elephant Hill and with a dramatic mountain backdrop, this 18th-century park encompasses a peaceful, jade-colored pond, picturesque Qing-period pavilions, and a white-marble bridge leading into a cultural museum. Well-maintained hikes and cobbled lanes offer you an opportunity to enjoy the scenery, with luxuriant chestnut trees a sanctuary for birds.
