Water Body
Explore a serene aquatic ambience amid picturesque hills and plateaus at Lugu Lake. Shaped like a horse's hoof, the lake shelters many subalpine animal and plant species. When the morning mist mixes with sunlight, the lake becomes hauntingly orange and glows like a pearl, but when the surrounding hills cast their shadow, they turn the fiery water green. Local villagers gladly offer their guiding services for a reasonable fee and welcome all guests who want to learn about the community's lifestyle and traditions. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Lugu Lake and many more Lijiang attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Lijiang trip builder.
