"Lijiang Impressions" performance. A group of horses walk up the Chama Ancient Road. Horses in Yunan Province all have short legs. These horses cannot run fast, but they are good at walking in the mountain roads, which allows them to carry heavy goods. This photo shows a horse group walking up the long rugged Chama Ancient road in "Z" shaped switchbacks. ( Linruo)

"Lijiang Impressions" is a cultural show demonstrating the traditions and lifestyle of local Naxi, Yi and Bai ethnic minorities.

The show is staged right under the famous Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, which makes it the highest natural performance field in the world at 3,100 meters. It is also the second outdoor production for famous Chinese film director Zhang Yimou after his first show called "Liu Sanjie Impressions" in Yangshuo, Guilin Province.

The show is performed by 500 local people from ten different ethnic groups who were selected from 16 towns and villages in Lijiang. They use original native songs, dances and music to display the harmony of nature and human souls.
