Lashi Lake, Lijiang

2.2
#3 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.

  • Lashihai is located to the west of the city, about 15-20 minutes by car. It seems to be a wet park, but the activity here is very expensive, regardless of what it is or what it is, the Super class does not recommend that visitors play these activities. But the scenery is not wrong.

Where to stay in Lijiang

Though built on a small scale, Lijiang has long been a popular destination for Chinese tourists, and what was already a good choice of accommodations has grown with increased international interest. Expect to pay a premium to stay in the old town area, with hotels overlooking the main canals particularly popular. Head out of the old town and you'll find a good range of more cost-effective, smaller guesthouses, hostels, and hotels, either in the suburban residential areas, or on the main roads leading out into the hillier areas of the region.
