Attraction & Sightseeing In Lijiang

Brief Introduction  --  Sightseeing Index


Brief Introduction

Lijiang is located on the upper reaches of the Jinsha River, Lijiang is famous for its gorgeous mountains, old towns and villages and the survival of one of the world's oldest folk cultures.

There is a wealth of natural beauty here. The imposing Yulong Snow Mountain, is one of the best glacier mountains in China, with a total of thirteen peaks. At The First Bend of the Yangtze River, due to the obstruction of mountain ranges, the river makes a detour, forming a mammoth V shape. Following the river downstream, you'll  arrive at Tiger Leaping Gorge, which has long been deemed one of the most magnificent gorges in the world, exerting a great magnetic force. Yufeng Temple, one of the seven largest lamaseries in Yunnan, boasts a huge  Camellia tree that locals claim is the largest of its kind in China.

Lijiang is not only the center of the Dongba culture of the Naxi minority group, but also the place where Han, Tibetan and Bai cultures blend together. The old city of Lijiang is full of atmosphere too. Houses here are built in Bai and Han architectural style, forming a glorious and harmonious picture with beautiful rivers and mountains in the distance. Almost every household has access to streams or brooks and locals name the city "Oriental Venice".
