Chengdu Dufu Thatched Cottage Gardens - China

Dufu’s Thatched Cottage is a museum and memorial for Dufu (712-770 AD). He is one of China’s most famous poets, and he lived during the Tang Dynasty. The memorial is located in a 24 acre (97,000 square meter) park by the side of a stream called the Huanhua in Chengdu’s western suburb. Dufu resided in a thatched cottage at the site where he took refuge in Chengdu during a war. The memorial originated as a temple dedicated to Dufu that was built about a thousand years ago during the Song Dynasty. The park contains a recreation of his cottage, what is suspected to be the remains of the original cottage, and ancient temples and structures. A large beautiful garden surrounds the structures. It is located by the side of the Huanhua Stream in Chengdu's western suburb. Visitors to the park learn about Dufu’s life, his poetry, and his times, and enjoy the large contemplative park.

The 24 acre park includes the Gate, the Screen Wall, the Lobby, the Hall of Verse History, and the Gong Bu Temple. These structures are aligned along the central lane, and these buildings are flanked by corridors, cloisters and other auxiliary buildings. A broad-minded bronze statue of Dufu stands in the Hall of Verse History. The Gong Bu Temple has a life-like clay sculpture of Dufu. Trees and bamboo groves, winding brooks and small bridges surround these structures and lie between them.

All these things give the place an atmosphere of solemnity, and a sense of beauty and grace. Around the recreated cottage are bamboo fences, and inside the fences are vegetable and herb plots that remind people of the scenes described in Dufu's poems. While taking a quiet walk in this environment, visitors may feel that they are walking in that ancient era.

Lugu Lake - China


Lugu Lake offers so much variety to photography , from Snow covered mountains to blue lakes to over grown reed banks . 


Lugu lake is located in the North West Yunnan plateau in the centre of Ningliang Yi Autonomous County in the People's Republic of China. (on the borders of Sichuan, Yunnan and Tibet )

The middle of the lake forms the border between the Ninglang County of Yunnan Province and the Yanyuan County of Sichuan province. The formation of the lake is thought to have occurred in a geological fault belonging to the geological age of the Late Cenozoic.


It is an alpine lake at an elevation of 2,685 metres and is the highest lake in the Yunnan Province. The lake is surrounded by mountains and has five islands, four peninsulas, fourteen bays and seventeen beaches

The Mosuo people have been isolated in the valley and retain more ancient traditions and customs than the other people around them. Travel up to their valley was difficult, and it still is comparatively difficult. There are not yet paved roads to their territory. The 30,000 or so Mosuo people are ethnically distinct from the Naxi who live around Lijiang, but are similar to the Naxi in some ways.

Lijang - China 


Lijiang, a city in the northwest part of China's Yunnan province, is home to the Naxi and several other ethnic minority groups. Dating to the late Song dynasty, its old town encompasses cobblestone streets, canals and Central Market Square and its shops and restaurants. Black Dragon Pool has famed views of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain range, fronted by the Moon Embracing Pavilion.


Northwestern Yunnan Province near Tibet has become popular as a hiking area with spectacular natural scenery and accommodations available at a variety of hostels, hotels, and inns. There are interesting historical sites dating back hundreds of years interspersed with high mountains, forests, wild rivers and streams. The Yangtze River passes through this area, and Tiger Leaping Gorge of the Yangtze is a beautiful sight as are the Yulong (Jade Dragon) Snow Mountains. The Yulong Snow Mountains has a small ski area for beginners that is useable when the weather is good. It is Yunnan’s only ski area. The cultural and historical attractions in Lijiang County are the Naxi towns and the ancient districts of the city of Lijiang. Three ancient districts of the city of Lijiang became a UNESCO World Heritage area in 1997. Some parts of Lijiang are listed as a UNESCO Three Parallel Rivers Protected Reserve Area and are nature preserves, and for the variety of outdoor hiking, scenic areas, the ski area and interesting cultural and historical sites, it is worth visiting.


Lijiang is both the name of the city and of the county. It is about 150 kilometers from Burma and about 200 kilometers from Tibet. Most of the county is sparsely populated with nature preserves, high mountains, small towns, farms, and the shepherds’ pastures. The whole county of Lijiang has about 1.2 million people in area of about 21,200 square kilometers. The city of Lijiang has about a half million people.
