Bus travel in Mid-November

by DigitalBamboo

I am planning on visiting Lijiang and Shangri-La in mid-November, and heading to Chengdu afterward. I was wondering if the mountain roads between Shagri-La and Lijiang (and Lijiang to Panzhihua) are safe to travel by bus around that time of year, or if they are snowy/icy and dangerous. If so, I may pay the extra money and just fly from Shangri-La to Chengdu instead. (As a side note, does anybody know how reliable the Shangri-La airport is, and if IT is prone to delays due to weather, or anything). Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Bus travel in Mid-November

I drove on those roads in mid-October last year with no problem. I think you'll still be fine.

We originally planned to drive from Lijiang to Shangri-la (Zhongdian) and fly out that night, but in the end opted to drive out to Tiger Leaping Gorge and back to Lijiang instead of driving on, so we could fly out of Lijiang airport, which had a more convenient flight option.

Will you visit Jinghong (Xishuangbanna) in southern Yunnan? It's my favourite holiday spot in China :)

Maps

by Willettsworld

The old town of Lijiang is spread over quite a large area and all I had for navigation was a silly little map in my Lonely Planet. However, as you'll walk around you'll see these maps of the local area where you are which prove a great help as things do look the same!

Outside Baisha Village 2

More shots from Baisha- the locals still wear a lot of the traditional clothes, though it's mostly women who do- the men wear western clothes, including suit jackets in which they work the fields...

Visit Mu's "Mansion"

by savagetraveller

The Mu emperor's "mansion" is actually a miniature Forbidden City. The great thing about it - at least when we visited, was that it was completely uncrowded and hence intensely relaxing. I highly recommend going, bringing your journal, and sitting by one of the canals and spending some time meditating on life, the universe and everything!

Wengchang Temple 2

by John195123

While there really isn't much to do here and no photos are allowed inside, I suppose it's worth a visit, if for no other reason than it's a Daoist Temple, which is kind of neat. But realize it is set up for tourists these days. The following set of images is from the "no photography" area, taken with permission from one of the monks.

Black Dragon Pool Park

by Willettsworld

This is an absolute most see thing to do whilst in Lijiang. If you walk north from the old town you'll come to this beautiful lake park with some lovely pavilions and bridges that shouts CHINA at you. I went on a lovely, clear, sunny day where I could see the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain in the distance and took some stunning photos of it and of the lake park which can be seen in my travelogues.

The lake park was built in 1737 and covers an area of 40 hectares (over 430,000 sqft). Because Emperor Qianlong bestowed it the name of Jade spring Dragon God, it used to be called The Temple of Jade - spring Dragon God. Afterwards, emperors Jiaqing and Guangxu gave it the title Dragon God and it was then renamed Black Dragon Pool. Every March, when the weather is delightful, the local community gathers at the Dragon God Temple to pray and seek blessing. The emerald spring waters are famous for their curative powers, whether for stomach troubles or to enhance your complexion.

Open: 8am-7pm. Admission: no entrance fee, but you have to show your receipt of the Old Town preservation, which costs Y80.
