Its a special place! Incredible flora and fauna within Potatso National Park - absolutely worth the trip. But be aware: If you are looking for solitude its hard to find within chinese tourist-buses and must-walk-boardwalks. But that aside: Nature is great here!

Is a little barren during the dry season - can imagine it is amazing during the flower bloom over the wet season.

Trees covered in wonderful 'beard' moss, rhododendrons, wild flowers in the fields and lots of horses and cows in the fields. This is a well-managed and easy to get-around park (under 2 hours on the circuit).......beautiful.

You may choose to walk or to take the boat with a fee. Strolling along the path will be enjoyable as the boat ride will be quite short but still enjoyable. The breeze make it comfortable to walk.

It's beautiful and peaceful, but nothing special. Spend the time in o,d town Shangr-la. You'll experience more culture
