Review of 丽江 by ray_ecotourism ... (22), 2006年8月5日 5 stars

Lashi Lake
With an elevation of 2500 meters,Lashi Lake is the largest highland lake in Lijiang County,Lashi lake
and an important habitat for over 70 species of migratory birds,the highest waterbird species
diversity of any lake in Norhwest Yunnan.
During the winter months ,the lake is home to tens of thousands of migratory birds.
including proected species such as the Black-necked Crane,
Whooper Swan and Black Stork.
The birds come to Lashi lake to feed on its abundance of local crops,
aquatic plant species and 7 different species of fish.The class III protected water
lily is one  of  the 47aquatic plant species found in the lake.

Wenhai Lake, a sub-alpine lake within the Lashihai Nature Reserve,
is another habitat for migrating birds, most notably the endangered black stork.
Each year, for reasons not yet completely known, Wenhai undergoes a transformation
from sub-alpine lake to grazing grasslands.
Beginning in early spring, the lake gradually disappears,
believed to drain through underground limestone formations to Lashi Lake,
about 500 meters below. Then, with the return of the summer rainy season,
Wenhai Lake begins to fill again. By fall it reaches its full size,
ready for the arrival of migratory birds in late December.
The watershed’s highland forests support a wide variation of plant and animal species,
including protected raptors, forest wildlife, traditional medicinal plants and treasured fungi.
In spring, the region’s famous rhododendrons – over 15 species -- burst into bloom,
creating mountains of colorful flowers.
Traditional Yi communities are found in the areas higher upland on Jade Dragon Snow Mountain.
For centuries, the Yi were known as a fierce, slave-owning society,
but in recent decades they have given up their slaves to live peacefully with
their Naxi neighbors. Living in more isolated areas,
the Yi generally do not have much contact with outsiders,
although they are very friendly and welcoming to guests.
