My first visit to Lijiang in year 2003 with a group of teachers and education officials. LiJiang, an ancient town with over 800 years of history is located in the northern part of KunMing province. I was mesmerized by its beauty and charms.
In early 1940's, Peter Goullart, a Russian, was sent here to help setting up cooperative societies for the local people. He wrote a book entitled- Forgotten Kingdom. I found it interesting and aroused me to learn more of this ancient town. And I promised myself to come back here in future.
These images were taken last month in LiJiang where I stayed inside the old town for few nights.
