Lijiang & Dali, China

The historic towns of Lijiang and Dali are both located in Yunnan Province, China. They are among the best preserved old towns that are still in existence in the country today. I spent about 10 days in Yunnan back in 2009 and took the following pictures with my old Nikon camera. Some of the pictures are not very clear, so bear with me

Good morning Lijiang. Today I'd be visiting the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, about an hour drive from Lijiang old town. The peak of the mountain is about 5600m above sea level and the view up there was absolutely amazing.
