The First Bend of the Yangtze River: Yangtze River flows from the glaciers on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau eastward across southwest, central and eastern China before emptying into sea at Shanghai. About 44 miles outside of Lijiang, unusual geological phenomenon forces the Yangtze to make a sudden V-shaped bend and flow to the northeast. The area at the river's bend features wide flow of water, green river water and green willows on both sides of the river. It is the best place to enjoy the spectacular scenery.
Tiger-Leaping Gorge: The gorge is located on the way from Lijiang to Shangri-La, lying between Haba Snow Mountain and Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. It is one of the deepest canyons of the world, famous for its majesty and grotesquery. At the narrowest spot the river is only 30 meters wide. The mouth of the gorge is 1,800 meters above sea level. The river is flanked by Yulong and Haba snow mountains, with a height difference of 3,900 meters. It is an ideal place for those who love hiking. There are three routes for hiking. One can start from Hutiaoxia Town along the river to Daju in Lijiang County, or go upstream from Daju. The third route sets out from Hutiaoxia Town to Hetaoyuan and is 28 km in length.

Songzanlin Lamasery: Originally built in 1679, it is a massive typical Lama monastery with traditional Tibetan architectural style.

Meili Snow Mountain: Towering like a pyramid is located about 10km west of Deqing City in Diqing Prefecture. As the sun rises in the east, the snow-mountain looks splendid, draped in gold. Low altitude modern glaciers, can be found in this area, of particular interest to those engaged in geological research. Under Kawageber Peak, Mingyuchia Glacier and Sichia Glacier stretch down to the forest at an elevation of 2,700 meters; this area is accessible. However, the highest peak, Kawageber Peak some 6,740 meters above sea level, is still a "virgin peak", untouched till now. Mountaineers from China, Great Britain, the US, and Japan have failed to conquer the peak over the years. In 1991, 17 mountaineers from China and Japan trying to conquer the peak lost their lives on the snow-mountain.

The most impressive features in this temple are the 500 Arhat sculptures. Compared with Bodhisattvas, Arhats look more like human beings than Gods, and therefore they are popular among the common people and monks.
