Lashi Lake, Lijiang

(2.3/5 based on 260 reviews on the web)
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. Put Lashi Lake into our Lijiang holiday planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Lijiang.

  • I wasn't overly impressed with this area. It was full of overpriced horseback riding tours that seemed rushed. Ours had a boat tour on it which it was too windy to head on the lake anyway. The transpo...  more »
