It is near Lijiang old town and it is a local park. If you paid Lijiang old town administration fee CNY80, you don't pay for the park entry fee. It is no more special in the park, but you could kill 1-2hrs in the park. I have to mention you will pass a local cinema (Lijiang Cinema) on the way... More

We really loved the park but are very glad we went at 4pm because the crowds/tour groups were just leaving and we could walk round and take photos without the chaos! To climb elephant mountain you have to get there before 4 so we didn't get to do that but had some incredible views anyway and found a nice quiet... More

This park is inside Lijiang town but is a large place, with a lake and some bridges. The view (and reflection) of Snow Mountain make for great photographs (the park itself has some photo ops also).

The views from this park can't be beat. It's worth a stroll through the park, but try to find a quiet time to go. The tranquility of this place can be easily disturbed by throngs of tourists.

Essentially this is just a beautiful park however the views of the jade dragon snow mountain worth spending some time here. You get to see old naxi women in their traditional outfit going about their lives and a playground for children. I spent a total of 2 hours just strolling and enjoying the park and enjoyed every moment.

More a series of small romantic lakes rather than a pond. Stunning location with wonderful views of the surrounding mountains.
