Shudu Lake, Shangri-La County
(4.5/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Have a picnic among the yaks and goats to experience the peaceful village life at Shudu Lake. Although the plateau lake rises 3,705 m (12,156 ft) above sea level, its maximum depth reaches only a relatively shallow 10 m (33 ft). Thanks to this and the clear water, you can see a unique species of golden carp with a distinct cross-body line swimming in the lake, whose name means cheese (Shu) and stone (du). Located in a national park, thick forests and pastures surround the lake. You can get active around the lake by going fishing or horseback riding. Use our Shangri-La County vacation trip planner to arrange your visit to Shudu Lake and other attractions in Shangri-La County.

  • And next to the promenade, Lakeside walk over time forward. Squirrels, birds are found. Had the better of the first boat, get on with it and can be a lot of shortcuts. Followed by a similar sight.

  • 在這裡遊玩,空氣質素是毋庸置疑的,天然氧吧。只是在高原上徒步3.3公里確實有點考驗。靠近棧道有野生松鼠,陽光下的草墊浮在湖面,倒影,與嬉戲中的野生水鳥互相輝映出一幅人間樂土美景。 
  • We took the bicycle there, it's a 4-5 hours trip with bicycle, problem is most bicycles aren't in superb condition (although they look new), which as a bike rider always gets me a little down (and lat...  more »
