The Lashihai Lake reserve in northwest Yunnan’s Lijiang City forms a paradise for 326 kinds of animals, including 235 birds, 25 fish, 31 amphibians and reptiles and 35 mammals.

Apart from animals, the lake-side reserve is home to 566 plant species that consist of 150 aquatic plants and 416 land ones.

Lying near a section of the Ancient Tea-Horse Road, the Lashihai lake is also a good place for tourists to watch waterfowls on a boat.

The area was listed as a Yunnan nature reserve in June 1998. Since then, the reserve has grown to be a miniature of biodiversity conservation.
