Really nice place

This lake is A very nice to visit. This a very big place to spend about two to three hours. This is a long walk but don't miss it. It is a very impressive view.

Full of Chinese tourists taking horse back rides (with completely disinterested tour operators). Nearby lake - trash filled irrigation ditches adjoining the fields. "Boat tour" is in a dirty rowboat for 20 minutes. Compared to Erhai Lake in Dali - this is not at all beautiful / maintained and far comparison. We regretted paying for the horseback riding/ boat tour... More

My families and I went horse riding along the ancient business route. The horses are cute. My parents and brother had so much fun! Afterwards, we sail on the lake with a canoe. We even had grilled fish on the canoe. This is my best travel experience indeed!

Went on a tour to Lashi Lake, which is about 30 minutes bus ride west of Lijiang. Good trip for young families. Went horse riding into the nearby hills which are dominated by conifers. Then rode down to the lake here we had a boat ride.

It might have migratory birds, if you are into it. But there is nothing there to see. This is not the Danube or the Mekong Delta, so why charge 50 yuan for nothing? A tourist trap of the first order. The thing is, you do not know it until after you paid. Read the reviews first before going. I did... More

A nice area 30 minutes away from Lijiang. You'll ride horses, sail and do sightseeing for 60 RMB which is a fair price.

We did not intend to visit this place and was approached by a local driver in the morning while roaming around Lijiang Old Town. She offered to take us to Lashi Lake, Shuhe and Baisha (we have planned to visit Shuhe and Baisha via public bus) at Y10 per head. We thought it is a good deal and agreed to... More

With elevation of 2500meters, the lake is also named the National Wetland Park. It is 10km and 30min drive from Lijiang Old Town. 茶马古道 Chá mǎ gǔdào is quite a popular attraction for the tourist at 拉市海 Lashi Lake. We paid 300rmb for two (do a little bargaining), took a 20min horse ride towards Lashi Lake, then go on a... More

Quite scenic but not much to see except the lake. We waited for the boat ride but nobody turns up to take care of us. No safety measure at all.
