I believe in that inner peace is from the nature.
This trip let me get it.
I like photographing to get more memorable views.
Tiger Leaping Gorge is my favorite sight.
I have been to Yunnan in July ,2011
We have make a flight reservation beforehand . It’s wise to save money.
Luckily, I met a local citizen who took the seat next to me . She shared me with something about her hometown with her pleasure.
It’s so cold here in summer.
I don’t care about it because I had began to plan about this at least 2 months ago
such as long T-shirt ( bc it is too hot at noon )
Coat is needed during the nights
1st day visiting downtown in Kunming
The taxi was hard to get there.
And the air wasn’t fresh.
The luxurious shopping malls were old-fashioned.
planning of Kunming isn’t very good.
2nd day – Go sightseeing from Kunming to Dali , The Old Town of Lijiang
We spent about nine hours to get there by self-driving
Dali was too normal.
it’s a long journey to there.
The heavy rain made the road muddy .
Arrived at Old Town of Lijiang at 7 pm. The dishes were not bad.
After dinner ,we hung out in the town.
The rain did not disrupted the visitors who walked on the street?
But it’s Commercialization there.
the traders aren’t from local
they sale CD ,tea ,clothes ,ect.
stores all sell these things .
we asked for the trip to Shika snow mountain . Finally , it didn’t be achieved b/c two children followed us and it was too dangerous.
3rd day – Jade Dragon Snow Mountain& The Old Town of Suhe
the mountain is amazing .but the weather was so bad
the old town of Suhe was the same Commercialization as Lijiang
4th day- Shangri-la
it’s a long journey to there.
Along each of the beautiful scenery
The air was fresh .
Shangri-la was too small
UV was too strong.
The Tibetan food is very delicious .
the lamb chop with mint was amazing.
Temple of Gedan songzanlin
It is the largest Tibetan Buddhism temple in Yunnan province and also the biggest in Kang district
The roof is covered in many layers of gold.
Ride the horse under the shika snow mountain
Interview with the Tibetan family at night
The yogurt was different from others I have already eaten
It’s too sour. I ate too much ,b/c it cure for the altitude illness .
Traditional Tibetan food includes roast mutton and beef , buttered tea , and barley liquor .
the taste of buttered tea is so strange.
We celebrated the granddaughter of the host ‘s birthday party
We danced with them and drunk the barley liquor
When we went back to hotel ,it was so cold /
The moon was clear and it was peaceful around there /
Fifth day- Tiger Leaping Gorge
TWO ROADS –ONE IS FREE ,THE OTHER ISN’T.
WE CHOOSE THE LAST ONE
THE VIEW MAY BE DIFFERENT
Tiger Leaping Gorge is a canyon on the Yangtze River , located in the Yunan province
It’s one of the most deeper canyons in the world.
So it‘s my favorite sight in Yunnan.
It’s easy to get down there.
But go back to car is too difficult
We ate the special dish – river fish there at noon.
The fish here didn’t have the tastes of earth
I was traveling through and see many youth riding bikes to Shangri-la
Lashihai is in the center of the Lashi Dam and it is the first natural reserve area ofYunnanprovince named by “wetland ”
The typical Lijiang Spruce Forestis hardly to see in the Lashihai region becauseof the human ‘s impact on it.
We were boating on it at 5 pm
It’s so cold but quiet.
The sunset was beautiful
Twelfth day –coming back
The airport was so dirty
The smell was not good.
