Hi there, what is the best way to get from Daocheng to Lugu Lake?
Thank you both so much for your replies.
My plan is to explore western sichuan.. do Yading and then explore Yunnan province.
So it looks like:
Daocheng - Shangrila
Shangrila - Lijang
Lijang - Lagu Hu
Lagu Hu - Lijang
Do correct me if I am wrong
I have checked with the local travel agent. His suggestion is ":first,you can rent a private car or take the public bus from Daocheng to Shangri-La,360kilometers ,about 8hours.then from Shangri-La to Lijiang city,180kilometers ,about 4-5hours,Lijiang city to Lugu Lake,200 kilometers,4hours. Alternatively, there are flights to Lijiang and from Lijiang travel by road to Luguhu".. Hope this helps.
From Daocheng to Lugu lake around 800km. The best way is driving youself. Then you can stop at Shangri-La，the world paradise. (sea level around 3800, ) and Lizhang ( sea level 2800), From Lizhang to Lugu lake takes 3,5hours. You can also join a tour group, but please select carefully, you should choose qualified tour which is not included shopping point. The third choose you can take public bus to go Lugu lake from Daocheng, but it is a bit complicated.
