Napahai Nature Reserve



Sitting at 3,270 m (10,728 ft) above sea level, the Napahai Nature Reserve (Nàpàhǎi Zìrán Bǎohùqū, 纳帕海自然保护区) is home to a wide range of indigenous wildlife, including the black-necked crane, a bird revered by the Buddhist tradition and found almost exclusively in the Tibetan Plateau.

Located 8 km (5 mi) to the northwest of Shangri-La County, the reserve sits on the convergence of 10 local rivers, creating the largest grassland in the county.

Horseback riding is quite popular here with many locals offering rides on their horses for RMB 30 per hour.
