The waters of the Black Dragon Pool in Lijiang come from a spring fed by Jade Dragon Snow Mountain that serves as a picturesque and often-photographed backdrop to the pool on clear days. Within the park are ancient monuments such as the Longshen Temple, the Deyue Pavilion, the Suocui Bridge and the Hanyue Stage. If you are lucky, as we were, you will find locals gathering to practice native dances, or playing instruments, in and around the stage, which serves as a bit of a community hub. Stay awhile and enjoy Black Dragon Pool.
