DescriptionLijiang has become a super well-known destination for Chinese toruists since the late 90’s. Foreign tourists are also pretty common here, but their numbers are dwarfed by domestic Chinese visitors. Although best known for the mass tourism in Old Town, Tiger Leaping Gorge, and around Yulong Snow Mountain, there are growing opportunities for trekking and other forms of adventure tourism in the surrounding mountains and canyons.
The Lijiang Area of the Yunnan guide currently (March 2016) has three areas:
Guanyin Gorge - the first Lijiang crag. Lies between Lijiang Old Town and the airport south of town.
Shigu – numerous limestone crags around the village of Damaidi, 6 km upstream into the mountains from the Yangtze River town of Shigu.
Liming – glorious sandstone escarpments into the mountains farther west of Lijiang. Liming developer, Mike Dobie, produces an up-to-date guide. The area is also treated in the 2015 Climb China guidebook.
