Situated in the northwestern portion of
Yunnan Province and the upper reaches of the Jinsha River,
Lijiang is a lively area mostly inhabited by the ethnic Naxi
people. The population of Lijiang is made up of the Naxi,
Miao, Hui, Bai, Lisu, Pumi, Yi, Tibetan, Han and other ethnic
groups. Among them, the Naxi people constitute nearly 60%
of the total.
Owing to its high elevation and low latitude, Lijiang experiences
a mild subtropical highland climate and has abundant sunshine
all year round. The annual mean temperature ranges from 12.6
C to 9.9 C.
Lijiang has the best-preserved ancient town
in China - the Dayan Town which has been listed in the World
Cultural Heritages by UNESCO in 1997. The Dayan Town is famous
for its orderly system of waterways and bridges, it was once
the center of ancient "Naxi Kingdom" and still maintains the
original flavor of the local lifestyle, the typical groups
of buildings and the profound cultural heritage of the region.
When wandering along Square Street or any other streets in
the Old Town, you will be struck by the peaceful surroundings.
Lijiang is the paradise for intrepid photographers
and hikers due to its magnificent natural landscape that nature
gives. Consisting of 13 peaks, with an altitude of 5,596 meters,
the thirteen peaks of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain flies
in the sky like a dragon of glittering and translucent jade.
About 100 kilometers northwest of Lijiang lying between Jade
Dragon Snow Mountain and Haba Snow Mountain is Tiger Leaping
Gorge, with a depth of 3,900 meters, it is one of the deepest
gorge in the world. 200 kilometers to the north of Lijiang,
lies the Lugu Lake, the lake is like a beautiful pearl shining
among the hills of the northwest plateau in Yunnan. Its shores
are the habitat of the Mosuo people who live there form a
matriarchal society. Up to now the Mosuo people still keep
their unique marriage custom. Instead of taking a husband,
Mosuo women only allow their lovers called "Axia" at night,
the men must leave and to work in their mother's household
the next morning. Neither of them is a member of each other's
family. Children are brought up by women her brothers, and
use the surname of their mothers. The "walking marriages"
and "woman's kingdom" adds mystique to Lijiang.
