Baisha is about 5 miles outside of Lijiang and offers a more authentic experience. It is a small town with only a few streets to explore and is a good place to come to see how the local Naxi people live.

It is also home to Dr Ho (was featured on Michael Palin’s Himalaya Program) a local medicine man who can tell whats troubling you just by looking at you and making you a natural herbal remedy. He is in his 90’s now and we could see him at work through his doorway… sadly there was a queue and we did not have time to see him.
