Black Dragon Pool Park (Hēilóngtán gōngyuán)

Black Dragon Pool Park (Hēilóngtán gōngyuán) Review

Outside the Old Town, Black Dragon Pool Park has a tranquil pavilion where locals come to play cards and drink tea. Sadly, recent droughts mean that the pool is almost entirely devoid of water during the dry winter season. The rest of the year, the park is one of the most popular places to photograph nearby Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. The park is home to the Dongba Research Institute Museum (Dōngba wénhuà bówùguǎn), devoted to Naxi Dongba culture.
