We took the bicycle there, it's a 4-5 hours trip with bicycle, problem is most bicycles aren't in superb condition (although they look new), which as a bike rider always gets me a little down (and later hurts my back). Careful.with the weather. The maps and directions they give you are worth ****, so If you really want to find... More

You can walk one side of the lake, about 2 miles to the next tram station. It is flat and an easy walk. Take it slow with the high altitude.

It is one of the two beautiful lakes in Pudacuo National Park, you should definitely spend some time walking along the lake to enjoy the magnificent view and nature.

About an hour and a half's walk around this lake on a wooden board-walk. It's a well-managed park and just beautiful, I imagine, in every season. Flowers, animals, amazing trees......definitely worth a visit.

There are 2 lakes in this national park. As compared to Bidahai, shudu lake is just normal. Maybe I didn't spend enough time there as the wind was blowing and I was in the verge of being a Popsicle.

Shad lake is part of the Parallel Rivers from UNESCO as well it holds AAAAA classification from Chinese Government, so you can expect a very good maintenance and infra-structure. the price is around RMB 150 what is very expensive for Chinese Standards. the park is 30 min driving out of Shangri-la and after arriving to the sight you will then...

This is one of the lakes in Pudacuo National Park in SHangri-La county of China's Yunan Province. The waters are crystal clear, the guides friendly and can speak in English (though they could do with some improvement) and the wooden walkway around the lake makes ambling along while taking in the sights a pleasure. Like all tourist attractions in China,... More
