Snow Mountain
Vonnie 伊娃It was a wonderful experience. The day we went it was raining and overcast, but we still enjoyed it. However if you can go on a sunny day, I think the views would be better. We bought oxygen canisters in town for 15 yuan as apposed to 60 yuan on the mountain, but we did not need them. We needed to show our passports, green codes and recent covid test results when purchasing the tickets. Getting around was pretty easy but being able to speak a bit of Chinese does help.

M41***15Mufu is a surprise for this trip to Lijiang. I used it only as an option to go or not, but I really went and found that I particularly liked it. First of all, the scenic area is particularly well managed, the overall maintenance is very careful, there will be a free Naxi guide to lead everyone to the whole trip, almost 45 minutes. The guide was well trained, explained clearly and with details, giving visitors the opportunity to understand the history behind the building more in depth than just walking around. The management of the park is very heartfelt. On the way to visit, the flower branches of a purple rose tree were broken because of the rain, and the staff came to check and sort out in less than 5 minutes. Other staff were also seen along the way to clean the park promenade. And in Mufu, I saw a particularly advanced toilet management, the toilet was very clean, and there was a very advanced display screen, see the photo. In short, the overall very good tour experience, and I am very grateful for the intention of the park. Finally, the adult 40, the elderly and children half price tickets are more conscience.

Ancient Settlement
Jam***leBeautiful ancient town with real soul. We spent a few days here instead of Lijiang Ancient town and loved it. The pace was slower, the town was quieter, the people were genuine and it was lovely. We were able to ride horses through the town and discover little alleyways and chat with locals. We actually ventured into Lijiang ancient town and found it a little overwhelming and extremely commercialized. There were some fun surprises too. We were glad we came to Shuhe instead!

Lijiang Travel Tips

About Lijiang

Listed as a World Heritage Site, Lijiang Old Town was a chaotic and bustling transit and transfer point on both the famous Silk Road and the Tea Horse Road. The ancient city never had city walls. Lying between the river and the mountains, the landscape is magnificent. Inside the old town, the roads are paved with slick cobblestones. The quaint buildings, small arched bridges and beautiful plateau scenery have attracted the interest of countless visitors. The relaxed pace of life and unique Nakhi culture are also part of the Lijiang's charm. The area surrounding the old town also has many beautiful natural landscapes such as the magnificent Yulongxue (Jade Dragon Snow) Mountain and the idyllic Lashihai Lake. If you like ancient towns, Shuhe or Baisha Old Towns are sure to impress with their tranquil breath of life.
