Day 1: Lijiang

In the morning, you will be picked up at your hotel and firstly enjoy the beautiful landscape at the [Baishui River] (White Water River). It flows at the foot of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain which is the largest snow mountain in the Northern Hemisphere. The riverbed is made up of white marble and lime stones and the river looks white, hence the name of White River (Baishui). Then proceed to the [Dry Sea] (Ganhaizi). Situated at the eastern foot of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, the Dry Sea has been a highland glacial lake before the 1940s, but the water gradually dried up and turned into a vast meadow. Standing on the meadow, you can get a panorama of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. From the Dry Sea, you will take a cable car to the [Spruce Plateau] and overlook the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, which is quite a different view from the one you get at the Dry Sea. We will transfer you to [Baisha Village] where you will [visit a local Naxi family] to get a close touch to the daily life of Naxi Minority. You will also pay a visit to the [Baisha Murals] to see the colorful murals with 600 years of history.

Meals: (L)

Day 2: Lijiang

Today your tour starts from the [Tiger Leaping Gorge]. Legend tells that at the narrowest section of the gorge, a tiger can leap over it by stepping on the rock in the middle of the river, so it is named the Tiger Leaping Gorge. Continue to visit the [First Bend of the Yangtze River] with imposing gorge scenery, where one of the tributaries of the Yangtze River, the Jinsha River (Golden Sand River), runs ahead to the Hengduan Mountain Range and suddenly turns to the northeast when meeting a cliff in the Stone Drum Town, forming a large U-shape bend. You will then visit the Iron Chain Bridge in the Stone Drum Town which got its name from a large, cylindrical, marble tablet shaped into a drum.

The tour ends when you’re transferred back to your hotel.
