Lashi Lake, Lijiang

3.3
#2 of 8 in Nature in Lijiang
Feel the cool mountain air and soak up the panoramic views during a trip up to Lashi Lake, a scenic lake at an elevation of 2,500 m (8202 ft) above sea level. The lake and surrounding scenery offer a wetland ecosystem, popular with migratory birds, including some rare species, such as the black-necked crane. Boat rides out onto the lake provide a fresh perspective on the lush, green landscape that surrounds it, while the village on the shore offers up pleasant scenes of traditional rural life. Locals run horse riding excursions around the lake, with the main route taking in sights of a temple, farmland, and the resident bird life.

  • During my stay in Lijiang, I chartered a taxi for a day and extended my legs to Dali. We visited the city of Dali and the temple. The taxi driver gave me a suggestion to go back after seeing the lake, so I took a taxi around the lake. It feels like a sea in a very large lake. The lake itself is not so beautiful, and the scenery that impresses is not particularly seen. This scenery is a scenery that seems to be seen in the Japan, and it was not the scenery that it was a special Yunnan province, and it was a sense of saying that it was usual. However, there were a lot of couples who did photography for the wedding ceremony like the tourist spot which was as such popular for Chinese tourists. There was a couple who wore a wedding dress and photographed the lake back, and there was a little spot aimed at the Insta, and there were quite a few Chinese in pin. There is nothing to see in particular, so I thought it would be a good place to stop by if I had enough time for sightseeing in Dali City.
