The total population is 301 thousand people, consisting of the Naxi, Han, Bai, Tibetan, Pumi, Lisu, Yi and other nationalities. The Naxi people constitute 58% of the total population. The county seat (Dayanzhen), concurrently the administrative seat of Lijiang Prefecture, is the political, economic and cultural centre of the county and prefecture.

The landscape in Lijiang is magnificent. With the 5,596-metre crest, the thirteen peaks of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain flies in the sky like a dragon of glittering and translucent jade. Hutiaoxia (Tiger Leaping Gorge) is one of the deepest gorges in the world with a depth of 3,900 metres. The first bend of the Yangtze River is well known. The southbound, turbulent Changjiang River spreads wide and flows slowly to the north. In the Yufengsi Lamasery, the 10,000-Blossom camellia tree, about 500 years in age, stands loftily, giving forth over 20,000 blossoms a year. It is renowned as the Greatest Camellia Tree in the world.

The Black Dragon Pool (Yuquan Park) is attractive with a tranquil and clear pond reflecting the snowcapped mountains, a group of classic buildings like Deyuelou (Pavilion to Greet the Rising Moon), Wufenglon (Pavilion of Five Phoenixes) and a five-arched stone bridge and flower beds which exhibit beautiful flowers all the year round. The ancient town of Dayanzhen is remarkable for its excellent layout which conducts a limpid stream to the gate of every household, with weeping willows along it. It is a rare example of Chinese ancient architecture. The legendary Lugu Lake is crystal clear. Its shores are the habitat of the Mosuo people, who are regarded as ¡°living fossils" of the matriarchal society. Up to now the Mosuo people still keep their unique way of life. Men and women are not unitied by marriage, yet keeping a casual cohabitation relationship.
