The most memorable destination is 玉龙雪山 and a fantastic open air performance put up by the local people <<印象-丽江>>. Because of the elderly in our group, we did not take the route that goes up the mountain. The route we took takes us around the foot of the mountain. Not that it is not nice, but just feel that I missed out something. Anyway, there are many beautiful areas around for us to take pictures (with the mountain as backdrop), including a lake that is so clear that it changes color to light reflection. And the 玉龙雪山 reflection in the clear lake is just breadth taking.

We rounded up the 玉龙雪山 trip with <<印象-丽江>>. It is a huge open stage with 玉龙雪山 as backdrop. There is a few hundreds of performers involved and all of them are "not professionals" but local people. The performance is about some of the culture of the local tribes. You can give others a miss in 丽江, but <<印象-丽江>> is a must see. No kidding.

The rest of the attractions are man made attractions.

黑龙潭 lake was dried up. According to the guide, it may be due to a recent earthquake that broke the source of the natural spring water.

束河古镇 was one of the three 古镇.

Again, too short time for too many things.
