Lijiang- Yuhu/ Baisha- Wenhai trek 2 days

The trek is moderate and anybody in good shape can do it. Averagely you walk 4-5 hours a day. This trek can be extended with 2 days if you want to continu to the Tiger Leaping Gorge. This beautiful area lies on the slopes of the Jade dragon snow mountain and is not very touristy. Altitude is between 2500 and 3100 m. You will start the trek in Yuhu and end at lake Lashihai.

On the road you will meet friendly herdsman tending their cattle and see many local varieties of the rhododendrons. On Wenhai lake you will find peace and quiet. The shore of the lake is a favourite spot for grazing horses. Overnight you will stay in a basic local guesthouse. Dinner is a home cooked family meal with plenty of homegrown vegetables.

The next day you will pass an Yi village and with a bit of luck you can taste grandmother’s homemade honey. It’s amazing to see how simple life is up the mountains and how busy and bustling life is in Lijiang town which is not too far away. Differences couldn’t be bigger…
