Full description
Benefit from pickup at your hotel, and then make your way to the river pier to watch local fishermen take part in a unique ritual at the end of the day. See a beautiful sunset over the Li River in the town of Xingping.

Experience the traditional lifestyle of the Lijiang fishermen as they use paddles, bamboo leaves, lanterns, and cormorants to catch fish. Marvel as they fish without the need for any hooks or bait.

The show lasts for around 1.5 hours and is based on the mutual trust between the birds and fishermen wearing hats and raincoats, holding lamps to light up the river after dark.
