Photograph by Michael Yamashita @yamashitaphoto – Hello Dali – sun breaks through clouds lighting up Erhai Lake. One thing you can always count on here is a beautiful ring of clouds above the mountains that surround the lake. Erhai means ear shape lake. I first visited Dali following the Mekong River for Natgeo, from source to mouth in 1989. Foreigners were not permitted in Yunnan at the time and no tourism even among Chinese existed. Fishermen and farmers from the Bai Minority inhabited small villages along its shores. The mild climate, clean air and pure waters have made it a tourist mecca today. #Dali #erhailake #Yunnan #china #clouds @thephotosociety @natgeocreative
