We spend the morning traveling from Lijiang to Shangri-La. On the way, we stopped by 长江第一湾 to take some pictures. Again, because of the dry season, it is actually not really majestic. Too bad.

Upon reaching Shangri-La, we pick up the local guide and proceed to 虎跳峡. A lot of steps to climb up and down. Again, if you cannot make it up, there is paid carriers at the bottom. I believed the place will be beautiful when it is fill with water.

After lunch, we went to 松藏林寺. It started to drizzle lightly but its enough drop the temperature pretty much. A bit uncomfortable and did not stay long enough for more picture taking :( Everyone wanted to go back to the shelter of the mini-bus. Would be good to spend more time there to explore the area slowly.

For the night activity, we had arrange to visit one of the local tribe's house for dinner. It is pretty commercialized as the place is meant to host large group of people. We are not use to the food they eat, but overall we are paying for the experience. One time is enough :D
