Duration: 1 day
Baisha: frescoes, herb tea, Dr. Ho, Wenfen Si Monastery, Naxi farm villages, Jade Dragon Mountain, and Black Dragon Pool Park.
A lot to see in just one day, be ready and well prepared! You will be picked up at your accommodation in Lijiang after breakfast.
First, you will visit Baisha, the former capital of the Naxi Kingdom. You walk through the old temple in the city and have a look at ancient frescoes (for which you need a flashlight). While strolling through this dazzling town, you might meet the legendary Dr. Ho. If you're lucky, he could invite you to one of his famous cup of herbal teas.
Second, a walk through a Naxi village follows.
Third is the Tibetan Buddhist Wenfen Si Monastery, which is situated on a mountain. When the weather conditions allow you to, you will have a beautiful view over the snow-covered Jade Dragon Mountain.
Fourth, you will visit the famed Black Dragon Pool Park in Lijiang.
