Lugu Lake is located between Ninglang County in Yunnan Province and Yanyuan County in Sichuan Province, about 300km away from Lijiang City.
Maybe there are not so much people know Rock, expect you are the ash grade wild tourists. Some one may happen to hear about “Rock Line”. Actually, Rock is a botanist and explorer. He is good at outdoor life. His steps covered all the places in Yunnan Province. And later, we can read the novel Lost Horizon of James Hilton and the movie, which made the world stunned by Shangri-La.

When looking at the wild spread blue lie between mountains and under the sky with no end. The whole environment releases a atmosphere of tranquil. I seem to understand something. Walking marrage, Mosuo groups, matriarchal society, Yang Er are all floating clouds. All I am dreaming for is just here, the heavenly lake bank. No legend, and do not need any legend.
Here, I do not know how to describe it with worlds, as the scenes cold tell better than any words in my mind.
This is Sanggehua, a kind of flower growing beside Lugu Lake. It is so beautiful, pure, dancing with the wind.

The isles dotted in the lake, standing in the mountains, the small boat waving on the blue water, the village lying quietly at the lakeside…. All of these are so pure, tranquil, and photos and words at that moment could not tell people all about Lugu Lake.

It was already afternoon. On plateau, my eyes even became pure without lots of dusk and buildings. Clouds floating above the lake seems do not want to leave just as me.
