#4 of 8 in Nature in Lijiang
Feel the cool mountain air and soak up the panoramic views during a trip up to Lashi Lake, a scenic lake at an elevation of 2,500 m (8202 ft) above sea level. The lake and surrounding scenery offer a wetland ecosystem, popular with migratory birds, including some rare species, such as the black-necked crane. Boat rides out onto the lake provide a fresh perspective on the lush, green landscape that surrounds it, while the village on the shore offers up pleasant scenes of traditional rural life. Locals run horse riding excursions around the lake, with the main route taking in sights of a temple, farmland, and the resident bird life.

  • We are the group to Lashihai horseback boating, probably per capita 100+ appearance, the morning past, someone with horseback riding, my mother and sister began a bit afraid, but the horse is quite docile, but occasionally to roadside eat grass, not too much movement. Lunch with several other people to eat the Earth Chicken hotpot, included in the newspaper tour, The taste is good, than the Lijiang ancient city of very expensive restaurant delicious. The afternoon is kayaking, this is my favorite item! can choose single or double kayak, children can be under the leadership of adults, basically no danger, my sister is very happy at night! By the way, should pay attention to sunscreen, this time I wear a pair of shorts, the results of the leg was sunburned, back after the burning pain.
