Lijiang Lashi-Lake Wona International Youth Hostel
It should be noted that the Wona International Youth Hostel is located in a village environment. The general feel of the area is quiet and low key. Compared to the bustle of the Old town it is very peaceful.
Lashihai Lake area overview: The Lashihai lake covers an area of 5330 hectares. Every winter, tens of thousands of migratory birds come here to spend the winter. December to March is the best time to observe these birds. They include the Himalayan grey crane, geese, red beak ducks and fifty other kinds of birds.
The weather in Lashihai is very mild and seems always like spring with an average temperature of 18 ° to 22 °. During the winter the fluctuation between day and night temperature is very large. The wetlands area of lashihai serves as a rejuvenating source for our environment. This is why our slogan is “Let's live in between the Earth’s breathing”.
Forget the annoying bustle of the city life. In the rural parts of Lashihai you can experience a natural experience with horseback riding, hiking, and observing the natural way of life the Naxi minority group lives.
After all the relaxation that Lashihai offers, join us for some outdoor adventures! Here we have an International senior guide team. We can take you to the unexplored areas of Yunnan, Tibet, and the Sichuan mountains for hiking and climbing adentures. Right outside our door is the the Haba Snow Mountain, a great beginner snow mountain climbing route that will give you a taste of thin air at 5396m.
If getting off the ground on steeper terrain is your desire, let us take you on our rock climbing adventures. Our professional guiding service has developed more than 20 sport climbing routes in the Lijiang area. These routes range in difficulty from 5.7-5.13. Our guides will also take you to the world class crack climbing destination at the Lijiang Laojunshan National Park, better known as Li Ming. With a climbing style similar to Indian Creek in America, this area stands as China’s premier traditional climbing area. Here we will guide and give you a true Yosemite experience on a few of the two hundred traditional rock climbing routes we’ve developed. In 2012 we successfully organized the Black Diamond and The North Face Laojunshan traditional climbing Festival at this destination. For the past few years this festival was held in Yangshuo, Guanxi. Now it has moved to Li Ming, Yunnan and will continue to for the next few years.
We can arrange for you to be picked up and dropped off any at of the transport locations in Lijiang including: the Airport, Train Station or any of Lijiang’s long-distance Bus Stations.
