On our last afternoon in Lijiang we climbed the hill in the centre of the old town to reach the temple. Climbing the to top of the temple gave a view of the entire city.

A pathway in the upper meadow.  In the days following our hike along the Tiger Leaping Gorge would take us to the other side of this mountain.

The musical by the name above is presented in an outdoor theatre situated next to Jade Dragon Snow Mountain.  We attended the morning show after which we climbed the mountain.

Lijiang

We arrived later in the day in Lijiang.  From the hotel we took a short taxi ride to the old town.  Lijiang's old town is quite large and is completely renovated.  While I expect it  once included residential buildings, most are now shops, restaurants, bars and small boutique hotels.
