Napa Hai Nature Reserve, Shangri-La County
(3.4/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Explore the unspoiled landscape of Napa Hai Nature Reserve, incorporating grassy plains, wetlands, and scenic mountain ranges. Sitting at 3,270 m (10,728.3 ft) above sea level and covering a large 66 sq km (25.4 sq mi) area, that park teems with an abundance of wildlife, from grazing animals to a variety of waterfowl and bird life. Caused by distinct seasonal changes, melt water from the surrounding mountains transforms the grasslands into a lake and wetland during the summer, attracting migratory birds of all creeds. A road circumnavigates the valley floor, providing a 35-40 km (22-25 mi) circuit for cycling or driving around. You can also explore the park on horseback, providing a great way to see the plain during the dry season. Birdwatchers should keep an eye out for the black-necked crane during the summer; one of the rarer regular visitors, it is listed as vulnerable and a revered bird in many Asiatic cultures. Our Shangri-La County vacation generator makes visiting Napa Hai Nature Reserve and other Shangri-La County attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • 从古城出发,跟着百度地图一直开,据说散客不收费,旅行团就收?我也不确定,反正我们就一直开,蓝天白云,清澈的湖,碧绿的草地,牦牛,羊真是太完美了,一路都在拍拍拍,根本停不下来,香格里拉这里是我再想来一次的地方! 
  • 纳帕海本身就是个很美的地方,我们去了伊拉草原然后又去环湖,感觉一天时间过得相当快啊,在这里玩没有个车子是非常不方便的,自驾在大自然的怀抱享受。
