Nestled beneath snow-capped peaks, Lijiang Ancient Town of Yunnan Province is a living museum as it is home to the Naxi people who have steadfastly preserved their centuries-old heritage. They still live in traditional homes, play ancient music and celebrate ethnic festivals with vitality.

Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, Old Dayan Town, Black Dragon Pool, Jade Peak Temple and nearby Tiger Leaping Gorge are the interesting sites for you to explore. The UN was so impressed by the survival of Ljiang that it has place all of Lijiang County on the World Heritage Site list.
