Lijiang is a beautiful shining jewel on the northwest YunnanGuizhou Plateau neighboring the southeast side of the Tibetan Plateau which is considered to be the “Roof of the World”. It is impressive because of its scenery and lush vegetation.

Lijiang boasts of breath-taking wonderful sights such as Jade Dragon Snow Mountain and its modern maritime glacier, the only one of its kind in the southern end of the Northern Hemisphere; Tiger Leaping Gorge; the world-famous grand canyon; the Lugu Lake, the cultural cradle of the “Matriarchy” of the Yongning Mosuo people in Ninglang .

The people of Naxi (Nakhi ), while developing their land of snow-clad mountains and turbulent rivers since ancient times, have to their credit the “Dongba Culture” seen as one of the world wonders, a culture all-embracing while unique.
