Lashi Lake, Lijiang

(2.2/5 based on 240+ 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.

  • 今年春节,去了丽江的拉市海。在拉市海,茶马古道是至今为止,骑马时间最长的一次;双人划艇,直划到儿子说划不动了。纳西族人的质朴让我们这些围在城市里拿着秒表掐时间算人民币的人,自愧。更有,若你有幸遇上那位好学、乐观、传统却会用“left、right、go on、stop“赶马的纳西族牵马人,那么,祝贺你,正如他说的,你一辈子也忘不了这次骑马经历,也忘不了他。  more »
  • In riding a horse, you can stroll to the Lake went on a tour of the local. I gave up and the prices were kinda high, but tourist fee in no way. It was the scenery on horseback still amble, time is a precious thing.
