Dali is located in Yunnan province in the South-West of China.
The town itself is too much touristic to be exciting; rather spectacular
are the mountains that can be hiked up without any special equipment
or much of technical skills. There is a deserted TV-station on
top (at 4090m above sea-level, Dali is at 1900m), usually hidden
behind clouds. It is also worthwhile roaming through the nearby villages.
