This is a huge lake that when it is sunny must be breathtaking! It is a worthwhile trip to see when it isn’t raining.

If you're looking for shopping centres, stay in the city. If you're looking for quiet and beauty, make the effort to visit. The lake doesn't have to be full of water or the grasslands filled with flowers for the area to be pretty. It was...More

Lake is nice, surounded by mountains. Water level varies during the year and sometimes is a bit low and then there are grasslands everywhere - you can walk there but be readdy to get messy. That is still ok. The worst thing are those enetrprising...More

To visit Napa Hai I would strongly recommend to hire a Gas moped from Yak Cafe in the Old Town of Shangrila as it gives you the freedom of seeing a lot of places around the lake as well as side roads. The lake itself...More

It was fun to drive around the lake and take in the sights, it's definitely a beautiful area and fun to eat the Naxi specialties at the various places scattered along the road. But there are better places to visit in the area IMO.

Just came back from Shangri-la recently. I have to agree with the other reviewer about this area. Nothing spectacular, but it would be attractive to most Chinese travellers from big cities with smog issues. Very clean air here. No need for masks for sure. :)...More

Maybe it was the wrong season.. but it was not extremely pretty. Perhaps if you come from a concrete jungle, it would be a refreshing change for you. But if you constantly see lots of greens, then you may give it a miss. Decent vast...More

I doubt a bit, even so high, it has a rather mild climate there. But it depends on weather, which might be cold enough in that time. You may be lucky on a very early morning or in the highest part of the park. So don't be... More
