Exploring China – Part 4: Lijiang

Lijiang old town

From Kunming our journey continued to Lijiang, which is located 2’400 m above sea level in the northwest of Yunnan province. Apparently the city has beautiful views to Jade Dragon Mountain, which unfortunately remained behind the clouds during our stay. We visited the gorgeous old town of Lijiang, which is a UN World Heritage Site and the Black Dragon pool area.

  1. Thank you for your nice comments! China was great, and especially I liked travelling around the Yuannan province, where all these pictures are, it was so beautiful!
