We spent about an hour at this wetland. There is a large tourist center that charges a hefty fee. ( Seniors over 70 are free, over 65 half price). the wet land is quite beautiful, but hardly worth the fee. We were there in April when the Iris were in bloom.

This is kinda disappointing and it feels like this was just made because other cities in Yunnan have the same thing. The area is small and -honestly- quite boring with no real lake-like place in the centre. Go to the one near Shangrila instead.
