Shudu Lake, Shangri-La County

4.5
#4 of 11 in Nature in Shangri-La County
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. To plan Shangri-La County vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • This is a course to trek around the Lake in the National Park. And high-altitude was about four kilometers 1. I was five times as much. It seems there is oxygen. And is a beautiful place, but moving.... Environmental destruction here and there I noticed that "protecting the environment" Chinese people it is quite selfish opinion, and I felt I just wonder?

  • Big and Beautiful lake for horse riding and costume pictures. It is very windy and glaring weather. The horses are well-trained by the owners. The only disadvantage is the rides were less than 45 mins...  more »

Where to stay in Shangri-La County

Most of the accommodations in Shangri-La County lie in the south of the main town. Centered around Guishan Park, the options here include budget hostels and hotels, and family-run guesthouses on atmospheric commercial streets. Look to the north of the main urban area for a selection of more upmarket establishments--some set in converted historic buildings, and others offering new-build luxury with pools, restaurants, and spas. The rural areas of scenic farmland north of town feature a couple of refined hotels with extensive views of the landscape that surrounds.
