Some 60 km north of Dali Old Town, right between Dali and Lijiang, lies peaceful Er’yuan (洱源). The name Er’yuan liturally means the source of Er, so of the Er’hai Lake. With a nice climate and relatively small population as well as its abundant hot springs, Er’yuan still is an insider's tip.

Beginning of this month (April 2017), the government of Dali Prefecture decided to temporarily close down almost 2000 guesthouses, restaurants and bars bordering directly the lakeside of Er'hai Lake. The reason: environmental issues, waste water pollution and the protection of the lake.
