When to go

Arrive in winter (December to February) to see the mountains topped with snow. Summer runs from June to September, but both spring and autumn tend to be mild.

Getting there

  • Planes

    The closest airport is Lijiang Sanyi, a 30-minute drive from Lijang. You’ll need to fly into Shanghai or Kunming first, then pick up a connecting flight.
  • Trains

    Lijiang Railway Station is on the edge of the city, with services connecting to Kunming, Dali and Qujing.
  • Automobiles

    Driving in mainland China is a tricky affair; drivers are usually required to retake their test. We recommend using taxis where possible.
