About Yanyuan

Yanyuan County is under the jurisdiction of Liangshan Yi Autonomous Prefecture in Sichuan Province. It is located on the southeastern edge of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and on the west bank of the lower reaches of the Yalong River. Yanyuan County got its name due to being rich in salt (Yanyuan literally means “salt source”). There is also a local legend about a salt well discovered by a Mosuo shepherdess. Yanyuan’s natural scenery is very beautiful, and features attractions such as Lugu Lake, Luowa Wharf, and Dazu Pier.

Popular Attractions in Yanyuan

Luowa Dock
4.6/5
30 Reviews
Pier
The Luowa Dock belongs to Sichuan, as Lugu Lake is divided, one-third in Yunnan and two-thirds in Sichuan. The Luowa Peninsula, where the dock is located, is a very important dividing line. On one side of the peninsula is the famous Grassy Lake, while on the other side is Bright Lake, named because no grass floats on its surface. Because of this, the scenery at the dock is very unique: on one side lies a world of greenery and on the other side lies pristine, clear water. Luowa Dock is also a great place to watch sunrises and sunsets.

Gesala Ecotourism Area

Forest
Gesala Ecotourism Area is in the northwest corner of Yanbian County, Panzhihua City. It is known as a natural geological museum. The scenic spot is a must when taking the golden tourist route from Panzhihua to Lugu Lake. It consists of primitive forest, mountain scenery, the Tiankeng floor drain and Yi customs. Thanks to myriads of azalea in spring, it is a good choice to enjoy beautiful scenery.
