Our English-speaking guide will meet you at your Lijiang hotel and transfer you for a wild tour in the air-conditioned car.
Drive to marvel at the First Bend of Yangtze River dotted with the lush forest and cloud-shrouded mounts nearby. Feel your draw hit your chest at the awe-inspiring Tiger Leaping Gorge following the ancient Stone Drum Village.
Then proceed to Shangri-La county, formerly known as Zhongdian, and transfer to your hotel.
Make a morning excursion to Bitahai Lake, about 25 km east from Shangri-La County. Here optional pony trip can be taken to go through a pretty forest and down to the lake. Your eyes will be feasted with a pagoda-like hill and the surrounding trees with their reflection on the tranquil lake.
The next stop is clear Shudu Lake embraced by the dense forests. The lakeshore is a pasture for herds of cows and sheep. Tibetan farm touch can be experienced here.
Continue the tour to Songzanlin Monastery which has a 300-year-old history and ranks as the most important in southwest China. Here you will get to know the culture characteristic of monastic architecture and the mural (Thangka) as well as the Buddhist scripture. Meanwhile, you can also get chance to chat and sip Tibetan butter tea with living Buddha in the monastery.
Heavy Tibet touch can be found in the Square Street of 1,300-year old town with the Tibetan medicines, yak goods, the Tibetan dance in the square, the giant wheel prayer, etc. White stupas can be seen everywhere and Scripture Chamber hidden within the old town originally was constructed for commemorating the Red Army. And a commanding view of the town district is available on the nearby Guishan Park.
Call it a day and return to your hotel with your guide and driver.
Drive back to your Lijiang hotel.
