Tacheng and Baima National Nature Reserve

Tacheng Village is located on the bank of the Jinsha Valley, only 4 hours away from Lijiang City, and famous for being the gateway to the Baima Nature Reserve.

We would advise departure early (8:30 in the morning) to the Reserve, so you have enough time to observe the monkey and enjoy the peace of the park.

The park also provides you with short walks and hiking opportunities, but it is highly recommended that you be accompanied by a local guide who will know what to do in the event of encountering wild animals whose behavior cannot predict.

We recommend this destination for those who like photos, nature, fresh air, and contact with animals.
