Having contacted Lugu Lake government portals on WeChat and verified again by telephone, they now officially accept foreign travelers. On paper, they denied entry of foreigners a while back due to the pandemic.

One-way direct flight from Kunming to Lugu Lake via Lucky Air ranges from $220 to $290 (excluding $50 airport taxes) depending on dates. Airport buses to lake bus terminal cost $30/pax, approximately an one hour duration. Other cities that could fly to Lugu Lake besides Kunming are Chongqing and Chengdu.

Lake sightseeing buses that drive around the entire lake, which starts in Yunnan and crosses over to Sichuan Province and back, takes a total of four hours. 2/3 of lake is supposedly in the territory of Sichuan, 1/3 in Yunnan (the more scenic). Two daily departure bus times, once in the morning and once at noon. $60/pax for two-day all-you-can-ride scenic bus pass.

Lugu Lake buses to Lijiang takes approximately four hours, halving the driving time in the past due to new roads.

Thank you for all your featured article contributions. Foreigners in Kunming & beyond greatly appreciate your dedicated updates during the covid onslaught.

A few days ago on June 30, Yang Liping officially unveiled her Yunnan Dali Grand Theater (杨丽萍大剧院) to the world. An architectural feat of beauty. She may not pass on her legacy in blood, but definitely in her artistic spirit.
