Lake Lugu

Highly recommended
It requires a certain effort to get to Lake Lugu, but after 6hr of winding roads from Lijiang, you'll come into an unspoilt landscape inhabited by ethnic groups untouched by the modern world. Nestling in the heart of the mountains, and dominated by Lion Mountain (3 775m), the clear waters of the lake are dotted with small islands. Take a trip in a dugout canoe or, if the weather's good, enjoy a swim in the lake. Note that you need to allow between four and six days to do the full tour of the lake.
