This morning we wandered around the Old Quarter of Lijaing. The buildings here were and still are made of wood. They are the only buildings that were salvageable after the earthquake in 1996. This area offers an array of cobbled streets lined with traditional buildings and meandering canals. We visited a traditional tea house where we tasted Puer Tea. This is grown alongside the Mekong river in China and is processed in Lijiang. We went to visit the Baisha Frescoes which are ...

We were then shown into ...

... doors and windows. The roofs are supported by tall, thick, round columns that reach from the ground to the roof. I bet they are super cozy in the cold times (which is not now). In Shangrila we are at Kevin's Trekker Inn, which was an awesome pick. We somehow got the best room in the joint, on the third floor with a big private patio and views over old town. There's another good viewing patio for the other guests and a comfortable common room/restaurant/library. Kevin ...

... chatting in the Town Square. We feasted on tasty morsels while enjoying the twinkling of lights and lanterns, at night. Strolling to the North gate, we were welcomed by the old Water Wheel, which did as its name suggests. Much of the Old Town’s water came from the melting snow from Jade Dragon Mountain, which can be accessed by cable car for tourists to view some of the 13 peaks and beautiful scenery. This is definitely an area where ...
