Along with seeing Impression Lijiang, we also saw some of the natural features of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. A bus dropped us off at a gorgeous meeting point of mountain, trees, and water.
Surrounded by beauty.
This place happened to be optimized for the commercial aspects of tourism. There were photo ops with yaks…
…on cool, but man-made “geological formations” of concrete.
We could also do photoshoots in ethnic costumes or buy wood tablets we could write wishes on.
The elaborate silver headdresses and jewelry here are traditionally worn by women of the Miao ethnic group. There are pictures of the silver headdresses and other interesting Miao headdresses in this Wikipedia article.
After leaving Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, we went to another old town. Post tomorrow!
