Feel the cool mountain air and soak up the panoramic views during a trip up to Lashi Lake, a scenic lake at an elevation of 2,500 m (8202 ft) above sea level. The lake and surrounding scenery offer a wetland ecosystem, popular with migratory birds, including some rare species, such as the black-necked crane. Boat rides out onto the lake provide a fresh perspective on the lush, green landscape that surrounds it, while the village on the shore offers up pleasant scenes of traditional rural life. Locals run horse riding excursions around the lake, with the main route taking in sights of a temple, farmland, and the resident bird life.

RMB 80 for boat fee, views are amazing in Lijiang!
It is not actually a sea, its only a lake for local to treat it as a sea. Not recommended to visit.
migrant birds and thousands of them stay here over winter every year.
Come to Lashihai to find the road the caravan has traveled like time travel In order to maintain the nature, the local government will take back the original land of the local people and distribute the two horses to one family. The residents are afraid that the vicious competition will damage the tourism resources, so they centrally manage the horses. The income of the residents is more than 100,000 yuan a year, and the job opportunities are guaranteed. The little brother who leads the horse here is always slow and slow, but reminds us not to rush and take it slow Definitely an unforgettable travel experience
The first stop in Lijiang: Lashihai. There is a park trail in the district. The scenery is beautiful when you walk around and take pictures. There is an old tea-horse road outside the park. It is recommended to ride a horse and let a professional horseman lead the way. Listening to the groom talking about the past situation, the groom will even sing a folk song
