Being birds lovers and nature photographers, We quite like Lashi Lake despite the rampant commercialization. We joined a local tour from Kunming and mingled withe the local and hence got some very good deal for like 200RMB which includes tourist coach transport to and fro, horse ride, boat ride and tea plus lunch all thrown in. We were slightly late... More

We didn't have a good impression of Lashi Hai. It is after all a wetland made happening through man made commercialism. Throw in a few horse rides and boat rides, that becomes an attraction. But you can do that anywhere else in the world too. Hence, not worth the money spent... Which is expensive by china standards. The worst part... More

She was initially told about the herb and thought it cost a... More

Paid 800 for two for the horse-riding and boating. Was told it was special price and was asked to be hush about it. The ride was done in less than 2 hours. I could only commend the horses, and nothing much else. Grossly overpriced. And I feel cheated.

Like I was in a world that I had never been before. I enjoyed the mule riding up the hill. On top of the hill, the view was breathtaking especially early in the morning. You can see the river water vaporizing creating a mystical view together with the sun rays. Waterfalls can be seen along the journey. The journey on... More

there is nothing to see at lashi lake. time can be better spent elsewhere. do avoid touts at zhongyi market touting horse riding at lashi lake. the modus operandi is as follows: the mini van would bring you to an obscure horse riding station. on alighting, the van would simply drive off leaving you stranded at the station for a...

We stopped at Lashi Lake on our way to Baisha and Shuhe, and while it has some nice views of the mountains, there is really not much else to do or see.

Known as "New Basin" in Naxi Tribe language. Gazetted as National Wetland Park. Abt less than 30 minutes of drive thru the country via Lijiang Ancient town ( 8 Km west ). At an elevation of 2,500 meters located at Hengduan Mountain Range provides a wonderful view of the province and the climate is also much cooler than other parts... More

20 minutes from Lijiang Old Town Small Horse riding provides very interesting experience especially for first timer. Quite stable even going up and down narrow lanes. Not much of safety regulation I.e no helmet etc. Metal boat rowing at this time of the year is a waste of time. No bird to watch . No life vest provided Traffic could... More
