Visit Dali Old Town for its traditional architecture, minority cultures and simply to relax. But there is actually much to do and see in Dali City well outside the Old Town. With the beautiful CangShan Mountains and the Erhai Lake in the neighbourhood, it has a perfect natural setting.
With all 19 peaks over 3,500 m the CangShan mountains are an impressive site. Cross the mountains and get to Guanping. You will get inspired by nature and culture; the mountains are noted for a very rich and diverse flora, while cultural relics of the Bai and Yi people as well as the lively contemporary markets will make you feel in an undiscovered world.
