My friends and I did not do any horseback riding since we're low on budget, so we just paid RMB40 for the admission fee. Be careful where you step or you may land yourself into some horse manure. I do wish that they provide better facilities though. That said, the views are amazing! Perfect for photography junkies. Go even further... More

I rented a bicycle and rode along the fast grasslands. Really relaxing and interesting to see how locals live. Yaks, sheep and goats everywhere with super friendly people.

Loved this place for horseback riding. We loved it so much we did twice. People in the horse ranch are very nice. It took me a few tries to make them accept my tips.

nice scenic place for photos or even a picnic. Do be careful not to dirty the surroundings. The local are quite protective over this.

The entrance ticket we purchased for Napa Hai covers Yila grassland too. It was very relaxing walking on the grassland with the sheep, horses, yaks, pigs and cows. We did not take the horse ride as we find walking more fun. Very relaxing to spend the late afternoon but beware of the UV ray.

we went here during end of august where the flowers not yet bloom so we did not get the chance to appreciate the truly beauty of this grassland. however, walk along this grassland is very relaxing with wind blowing on to your face. a very beautiful spot for photo taking...

We went with Keith from Lijiang Guides and enjoyed a wonderful time going out to the grasslands, visiting a sacred hill and looking out over the grasslands, and then staying with a Tibetan family. It was something really special.
