Napa Hai Nature Reserve, Shangri-La County

(3.5/5 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.

  • Before going to pass into the Qin from the town when suddenly a vast meadow. High flows calm because of the blue color of green and water the horses and cows grazing leisurely.
