1 Day in Dali: The Best of the Region
This day tour starts in the old town of Dali and will introduce the cultural and historical highlights of the region. If you only have one day in Dali or little time in the region then this day trip is perfect for you. First we head to the 1200 years old Chongsheng Three Pagodas on the foothills of the Cangshan mountain range. Your tour guide has many historical facts and background information to this unique building. From the temples higher up the mountain you´ll have great views on the Dali valley and Erhai lake. After the pagoda visit we drive a little while on curvy mountain roads deeper into the mountain to Wu Wei Si, a 500 years old Taoist temple where until today Kung Fu masters practice their art. Before heading back to Dali old town we drive to the shores of Erhai lake and take a boat of a local fisherman onto the lake to watch him Comoran fishing. The birds are trained in the way that they don´t swallow the fish but instead bring it back to the boat and deliver it to the fisherman. Before this Dali day trip ends we visit some hidden spots in Dali old town and visit the local farmer´s market.
