Honestly, this is a giant open field with some yaks, cows and pigs walking around. You can see that just about anywhere around Shangri-La. On top of this, your driver will invariably try to collect kickbacks by talking you into taking a horse ride at...More

It was fun to drive around the lake and take in the sights, it's definitely a beautiful area and fun to eat the Naxi specialties at the various places scattered along the road. But there are better places to visit in the area IMO.

Took a bike ride around the whole of the lake/grassland. We all really enjoyed the bike ride. Not a huge amount to see, animals grazing, villagers working. It's about 30+km which our 10 and 12 year olds were able to manage, it's relatively flat the...More

When I was there aside to feel amazed by the view I felt like in a National Geographic documentary. I suggest you to go around the lake by motorcycle, bicycle, e-bike or car. So that you can stop enjoying the view and feeling part of...More
