Clean and nice lake tour. You can enjoy the breeze and have a nice view of the ErHai. You could access to some small islands in the lake which a cruise tour.

We absolutely loved Erhai Lake and spent a whole day to cycle around it, while often stopping at scenic points to eat strawberries with the locals or just stop and relax in the sun by the lake. It would take too long to cycle all...More

A big lake with clean water and beautiful scenery. It is amazing to ride a boat and stay in the water between mountains for an hour.

You need to drive round the lake to enjoy its beauty and understand its culture. Very interesting drive with many stops for photography. My driver cum guide Racheal was excellent.

Boat ride across the lake to a small fishing village was nothing out of the ordinary. Walking around the fishing village was interesting especially watching the primary school children doing their mandatory morning exercises before general play time.

If you are in Dali, an early morning bike ride to the water’s edge is a must do. The sun rises just over the mountains and creates incredible Kodak moments for your photo book. I only wish you could go out on the water. Recently,...More

All the locals we talked with told us the boat ride into the lake from Dali was boaring. So we decided we would not make our own judgement on that and instead spent 1.5 hours visiting the park available from Xizhou. This is a small...More
