Black Dragon Pool Park, also known as Yuquan Park, is located at the foot of Xiangshan Mountain in the north of the Old Town of Lijiang. It is an iconic attraction in Lijiang and the water source for old town. The spires of limestone tufas protrude from the water's surface and can be seen from the edge of the clear spring pool. Jade Dragon Snow Mountain can be seen reflected in the waters of the Black Dragon Pool and is an excellent place for taking photos. The Dongba Culture Institute is located here, containing many national treasure-level ancient buildings.

I wouldn't miss it while visiting the old town of Lijiang. The Black Dragon Pond Park is an enchanting place! It is so nice to have a walk around the lake and if you are lucky you can even see the Jade Dragon Snow mountain in the background.
You can get there easily while visiting old town.
There is a ticket if you haven't already paid the access to the old town, if you did then it is free.
Worth the visit!!!

Black Dragon Pool, a short walk along the river from Lijiang old town. A lovely walk around the river! We also hiked up Elephant Hill - warning: there are a LOT of steps but the views are worth it! The hike took around 1hr - 1hr 1/2 to complete. Bring water!
After your hike, take yourself off to Cornerstone Cafe for some tasty quesadillas!

This May holiday, we decided to pay a visit to this land of dragons. Although China is said to be famous for dragons, Lijiang is such a city with so many natural attractions made in analogy with dragon look alike. Here's one simple but totally mind-blowing park that gives you the view of Black dragon. The temple standing there is perceived to be the head of the dragon and the bridge is the neck; while the remaining pool out there is the body of it. Yes, I'm talking about the Black dragon pool (黑龙潭） in Lijiang. Situated near to the ancient town, we checked in at the hotel Moutan in Jiaoyu road. And the park is just 200m from there. The interesting part is they don't have any entry tickets to visit the dragon pool, which is much appreciated. #couplestrip #yunnantravel
Black dragon pool is a nice scenic area near Lijiang, China. Entrance fee is about 50rmb and there are walking paths and places you can picnic. This is a less crowded place than the main town area. #happynewyear
