watch out for the blazing sun while waiting for the show to start, one must wear hat, breathing clothing including scarve, long sleeves cover, maybe gloves, certainly sunblock, and sun glasses. Since it is in high altitude, the air is fresh but the temperature can change suddenly and becomes windy. So hold on to your hat! There is a group... More

The show under the sky at 2pm is way too hot. Most of people needed to wear eyes glasses, hats and holding umbrella throughout the show. The cost of the show is too high with the entrance ticket to the national reserve (130) and the ticket itself(280). The show was not full with English translation so non-Chinese speaking will not...

We thoroughly enjoyed the live show seeing the culture of the NAXI. The performance shows different types of local songs and dancing. There are miniature horses with cowboys and great musical numbers. Both adults and children enjoyed the show. The cast is several hundred and the 15,000 snow covered mountain is the backdrop!!

This lavish show employs the local people in an extravaganza that describes some of their culture. Produced by the same director as did the Olympic opening show, it is colorful with costumed, dancing, and singing local actors. The stage is custom made and is intended to have the mountains as a natural backdrop. The clouds were low and we never... More

We were very fortunate to have extremely fine weather to watch this stunning show, especially with the amazing backdrop of the nearby mountain ranges. There are about 500 dancers in total as well as horses. As it is outdoors, typically around midday, beware of the strong sun at altitude so take a wide brimmed hat and sunscreen (the flimsy baseball... More

Its a memorable experience to watch an outdoor performance by local folks representing the different tribal cultures of Yunnan with the mountains as the backdrop which is so very unique and beautiful. The dances and songs itself are mesmerizing to watch and it tells the story of the lives and customs of the different tribes in Yunnan.

Of all my travels in many different countries and having seen innumerable shows indoors and outdoors, this show ranks as one of the very best! The setting is against the splendidly stunning Jade Dragon Snow Mountains-- the performers represent the many different minority tribes of Yunnan, China. The choreography, the written descriptions/explanations, and the very touching music are all part... More

Worth time and money, very enjoyed my time! It starts around 11.00AM so make sure you arrive early to reserve the seat. Outdoor stage has amazing view on the background.
