Southwestern China Sights

Lugu Lake (Lúgū hú)

  • Scenic Drive/Tour

Fodor's Review

If you have a few days to spare, Lugu Lake is a great getaway from Lijiang. The lake straddles the border of Sichuan and Yunnan provinces and is dotted with dreamy little towns belonging mostly to the Mosuo, a subgroup of the ubiquitous Naxi. Exploring the Lake's 80 km (50 miles) of stunning lake and mountain scenery is possible by bus, but biking and hiking provide better views.

Buses taking about five hours depart each morning from Lijiang. Depending on your destination

on the lake, tickets cost Y74 to Y97. An airport, slated to open by 2014, will likely turn this into a major tourist hot spot.
