Yading – Milk Lake and Five Color Lake 亚丁 牛奶海 与 五色海

For more maps and details about Yading scenic area, see Yading main post

How to get there: The sightseeing bus starts at Yading ticket office, and the last stop is Luorong Pasture (Meadow) 洛绒牛场 after 90 minutes. The hike up to Milk Lake starts here, and it takes 2-3 hours depending on how much you are affected by the altitude, 4600 meters above sea level.

We stayed at a hotel down in Riwa (Shangri-La) Village, and had no problems to catch the last bus from Luorong back down to the village in the afternoon.
