Napa Hai Nature Reserve, Shangri-La County
(3.4/5 based on 95+ 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.

  • The "lake" gets wet in winter and transforms itself into a giant mirror. The other side was still dry and hundreds of yaks goats and sheep can be seen there. Saw other foreigners cycling around it, lo...  more »
  • 沒有準備過在外地騎20公里自行車,卻即興在高原上馳騁(單車) 如果體力允許,這真是一個游納帕海的新玩法, 沒有強迫購物,沒有強制騎馬,如果你願意,你可以騎馬,逗羊/牛/豬, 牠們都是放養, 自由自在享受自然饋贈的原生草和花, 藍天白雲下的美景倒影在海子上, 讓人流連忘返! 
  • 八月来过一次。爱到不行。第二次去香格里拉,就决定一定一定要去纳帕海。颜色和夏天完全不一样,另一种美。红白蓝,美不胜收。
