读万卷书,不如行万里路

Inside This Yunnan Log

Nine dragon waterfalls 九龙瀑布

Amazing sights of these waterfalls made us forgotten the meeting time of the lunch on the fourth day. 

Judge for them for yourself. 

Word of caution - if you don't want to have the horse ride, simply ignore those operators before they become leech!

 
The mini three gorges @ Lubuge 鲁布革三峡

If you missed the chance to see the three gorges at Yangtze River, need not worry as here in Yunnan you are able to see the mini version of it.

It was cold and freezing but there were nice views along the way as the ship cruised along the gorges.
 

Puzhehei (普者黑)

"Land of fish, rice, prawn" as what Puzhehei known in the native language. 

It was foggy as usual as we hit the hilly tracks again. 

The only problem was the unpredictable weather and the long tiring journey to the resort from Luoping. 

The main activity of the resort is the "water warfare" between the canoes while rowing on the lake. 

For safety reason, I opted not to snap any picture. 

The reward at the end of boat rowing is a visit to the 观音洞.

 

 
Visit "HongHe" Tobacco factory
(
红河烟厂走透透)
The first impression of this factory of one of the biggest employer in China was that - you can't tell from the first look that it is a factory premise.

Rather, it's more like small housing estate that housed not only the tobacco factory but it also comprises a sizable garden, staff accommodation with recreational facilities.
 
First sight of the Laughing Buddha

Pilgrimage at MiLe (弥勒朝圣去)

Here we were at the Laughing Buddha; it takes one to climb 1999 steps to see the 19.99m tall gold-plated Laughing Buddha. 

The feeling was great for one to able to achieve such feat. 

Waiting at the top of hill was the view of terrains that surrounded the hill.
