Since then, the nature got slowly rehabilitated, and turned out to be a paradise for thousands of birds. In early winter, lots of migratory birds come here. They rest in the grass and look for food in Lashihai Lake and the streams. The warm climate makes it possible for the birds to pass the long winter safely.

Scientists say that the mountain formed
over 230 million years ago from ancient
geosynclines when dinosaurs roamed on the
Earth. In the Naxi People¡¯s language, Jade
Dragon Snow Mountain means the place for
loves that die for their love. Jade Dragon
Snow Mountain has rich vegetation coverage,

Baisha Murals: These murals are in Baisha
Village which lies in the north of Lijiang.
Baisha murals are mostly from the Ming Dynasty
(1368-1644). Among the 55 existing murals,
the largest one is at the Dabaoji Hall of
Baisha. Most Baisha murals depict religious
stories, and one characteristic is to combine
several legends into one picture. They are
an artistic crystallization combining the
Naxi, Tibetan, Bai and Han styles. The originality

the different religious cultures and artistic
forms of Buddhism, Lamaism, Daoism and the
Dongba Religion of Naxi People.
