undiscovered trekking opportunity is waiting for you just outside of
Lijiang. Nestled in a sub-alpine valley at an elevation over 3000 meters, and
inaccessible except by foot or horse, Wenhai provides a perfect setting for
exploring the traditional cultures and natural attractions of Northwest
moderate 4 to 6 hour trek climbs from the Lijiang Valley up the slopes of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain.
A variety of trekking routes can be arranged, and accommodation options include the Wenhai
Ecolodge, one of the first of its kind in all of China, and the Lower
Wenhai Homestays. With trailheads from 30 to 50 minutes from Lijiang's Old Town, a
