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.

  • 瀘 Sell Lake is about 7-8 hours away from the beautiful river, the traffic is very inconvenient, to come to a lot of time to prepare better. But this is really beautiful, any angle pat is not a general beauty, come is not regret.

  • Driving into the Luguhu scenic area from Lijiang, it is necessary to be patient, after all, the road is not very friendly, especially Sichuan export to Xichang that section of the mountains is very beautiful. Needless to say, there are not many beautiful freshwater lakes in the country, and the quality is better than that of Erhai Lake at 1:30. And the Fuxian Lake has a spell. Sunny in Luguhu, there is some nostalgia. The only drawback of scenic spots is inconvenient transportation

  • Very worthwhile to go to the Holy Lake, though the journey is far away, but worth a hard trip. Just arrived at that moment really beautiful, go to the wedding bridge and the grass when the sky rained, but still does not affect its beauty and the original ecology. It was dark when I arrived at the hotel, but it was very quiet and there was a feeling of returning to nature in the Luguhu two nights.

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.
