Trip 1: Lashi Lake Ancient Tea Horse Trail
5 hours | 9:30 am start
Lashi Lake National Wetland Park offers a great day out for groups of friends, couples or families. Experience part of the historic Tea Horse Road on horseback and also a slice of Naxi village life, such as farmers at work, huge buffaloes up close, little children playing and carpenters restoring old Naxi homes. At the top of the hill, enjoy the gorgeous view of Lashi lake at the bottom before enjoying a Naxi lunch at a traditional Naxi farmhouse.
Trip 2: Lashi Lake Temple Trail with Kayaking
6 hours | 9:30 am start
Visiting a more remote corner of Lashi Lake, the horse trail leads to an important Tibetan Buddhist temple, regularly visited by “living buddhas”. After a simple buffet lunch by the shores of the lake, kayak through the tranquil reeds and between the months of December and March, get up-close to the thousands of migratory birds that overwinter there from Siberia.
