We stayed at Lao Shay Youth Hostel , so we did wander around the area to explore the area. We did not see any "lake", however, the view is spectacular , you can just sit & relax while enjoying mother nature's creation . We did not cycle, instead we just walked around the area. It was a lovely place .

It was a bit of a challenge to get our heads round exactly 'where' Napa Hai was and whether we would have to pay, but it was worth it in the end! A previous reviewer advised to take the country road here, not the main road, although it is longer (14km each way vs 7km). This is definitely the right... More

A nice and scenic place to explore. Get a nice local guide so that he can stop by whenever you want for a great photo shoot. you can even stop by local villages to have a walk around to experience the local lives.

I had the entire place to myself as not many people were about as I rode. The only folks I encountered were the villagers who were plowing and getting their land ready for planting. Yaks and horses were aplenty. There were also lots of black-necked cranes. Very lovely and natural place.

Napa Lake Nature Reserve is surrounded by snow-capped mountains on three sides. In spring and summer, the thawing waters flows into the lake thus expanding it. Located about 8 km from Shangrila Old Town, it took us 15 minutes to drive there. It was misty in the morning when we arrived but we could see wild ducks and birds swimming... More

We paid double for bicycle rentals instead of taking a private tour by car, thinking it'll be a nice nature trail, like the one we had in Dali. Far from it! We cycled through dangerous traffic on roads and highways. Think dusty and exhausting pushing of bikes along loooong stretches of slopes. Oh, the best thing was we ended up... More

We were in Shangri la in the low season and we are not asked for an entrance fee at all. At one stop we are approached by some Tibetan children asking if we would like to hire horses but our guide had a bit of banter with them and they were absolutely fine. It would have been lovely to have... More
