The lake surprises me at my first sight. It is as pure as crystal and I could see the sky and mountains clearly in the water. Cycling is the best way for this lake. The culture here is also unique and interesting to learn about.

Lugu Lake 泸沽湖, this scenic area straddles between Yunnan and Xichuan and was about 4 hrs drive from Lijian, but well worth a visit. It's relatively unspoilt with lovely idyllic scenery. We stayed at the Lugu Lake Gallery Bridge Hotel 瀘沽湖廊橋別院度假酒店 which has a lake...More

Our family of 9 headed to Lugu Lake by a privately chartered mini bus. The driver told us we were in luck as the new road to the lake just opened recently. It cuts the distance from Lijiang to Lugu Lake by half. So it...More
