Erhai Lake: Covering an area of 251 square kilometers, it is one of the seven biggest fresh water lakes in China and the second largest lake in Yunnan. The peaks of Cangshan Mountain are often mirrored in the lake, making majestic scenery. It would be a great pity if people traveling to Dali without going for a boat ride in the lake. 
Bai people: The Bai people have a long history and well-developed culture. 80% of the population of 1.39 million live in the Dali Bai Autonomous Prefecture around the Erhai Lake with exquisite scenery. The Bai people have their own spoden language but do not have a written one.
Three Pagodas: These pagodas are located between Cangshan Mountain and Erhai Lake, about 1.5 kilometers northwest from the ancient city of Dali. They were built in the Five Dynasties (907-960AD). In the time of Nanzhao and Dali Kingdoms, Chongsheng Monastery was the largest monastery in this area and the Three Pagodas were only a part of it. The pagodas were built because of two main reasons. Firstly, they were holy structures that invoked the Buddha's protection against the frequent disasters of floods and earthquakes. Secondly, the pagodas were used as a storehouse for scriptures and precious objects.

The Jade Dragon Snow Mountain has 13 peaks, the main peak is 5,596 meters above sea level, and is annually snowcapped. Scientists say that the mountain formed over 230 million years ago from ancient geosynclines when dinosaurs roamed on the Earth. In the Naxi People¡¯s language, Jade Dragon Snow Mountain means the place for loves that die for their love. Jade Dragon Snow Mountain has rich vegetation coverage, featuring distinct and complete alpine vertical ecosystem from subtropical zone to frigid zone.
Baisha Murals: These murals are in Baisha Village which lies in the north of Lijiang. Baisha murals are mostly from the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Among the 55 existing murals, the largest one is at the Dabaoji Hall of Baisha. Most Baisha murals depict religious stories, and one characteristic is to combine several legends into one picture. They are an artistic crystallization combining the Naxi, Tibetan, Bai and Han styles. The originality and figures of the mural paintings reflect the different religious cultures and artistic forms of Buddhism, Lamaism, Daoism and the Dongba Religion of Naxi People. 
Naxi People: They live in concentrated communities in the Lijiang Naxi Autonomous County in Yunnan Province, their language belongs to the Chinese-Tibetan language family. More than 1,000 years ago, the Naxi people had already created pictographic characters called the "Dongba script".
