Day 1 Arrive in Lijiang (L)
Airport pickup and transfer to hotel. Start our exploration in the World Heritage Site- Lijiang Old Town. You will take a stroll on the Square Street, the center square of the old town where four main streets radiate to four directions and are connected with each other by many narrow lanes. Continue to walk through the town, and you will be impressed by swift streams, small bridges, cobbled streets and grey tiled roofs of the local houses, as well as the local Naxi traditional dresses.

Day 2 Lijiang (B, L)
In the morning, drive to the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain scenic area. You will first enjoy the beautiful landscape at the White Water River that flows at the foot of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. Then move on to the Dry Sea, originally a highland glacial lake at the eastern foot of the mountain but now a vast meadow, where you can get a panorama of the mountain. From the Dry Sea, take a cable car to the Spruce Plateau and overlook the mountain.
Transfer to Baisha Village. You will pay a visit to a local Naxi family, and go to appreciate the delicate Baisha Murals of 600 years’ history. Finally come to the Yuhu Village and visit the Former Residence of Joseph Rock, where you will learn about the extraordinary life of the Austria-American explorer.

Day 3 Lijiang (B, L)
Today you will take an excursion to the Tiger Leaping Gorge, about 62 miles northwest of Lijiang Old Town and is believed to be the world’s deepest canyon located on the upstream of the Yangtze River in Yunnan. Continue to visit the First Bend of the Yangtze River where the river takes an unusual sudden turn at the Stone Drum Town and forms imposing scenery. You will then see the Iron Chain Bridge in the Stone Drum Town which got its name from a large, cylindrical, marble tablet shaped into a drum.
