National Park
_GG***10Great place to go to see the beautiful nature and walk for a few hours. There is a bus from Old Town leaving every day at 9:30 am if you don't have your own car.

Snow Mountain
rwwishartThis is an amazing place and somewhere I’d recommend everyone visiting Shangri-La visit. The bus runs from near the old town in the morning and you arriving back by maybe 7pm. The walking parts of the national park are some of the most spectacular places you will see in Yunnan!

_GG***10Tiger Leaping Gorge is closed at the moment, it will be reopen in May/June 2021. I was in the area in December 2020 and couldn't do the walk as the road was closed. The road works will take a few more months. I will have to visit again.

_GG***77We rented electric bikes to get here. Fun driving. But arrived quite late around 5.45pm. We only have until 6.30pm. After the entrance, we had to take the compulsory shuttle bus up to the temple. It was crowded so it’s hard to take any good photos left alone enjoying the sacred atmosphere in the temple. But the temple itself is great. I enjoyed every stairs up and every corners and turns. Should spend more time if you plan to come here so that you can wander around the village and the lake. Don’t just leave after the temple.

rwwishartTake the walk around the lake before going into the temple complex. You will find better spots for panoramas and the light is better when you go in the morning. Photos inside the temple halls are not allowed, so get what you can from the outside. Visiting takes maybe 3 hours if you want to wander over everything.

_We***29Beautiful area, very striking. hiking it might be difficult for people due to the altitude, but it's definitely worth taking the cable car up there. coat around 300 yuan for two people.
