Small Putuo Pictures

This pavilion was initially built in the Ming Dynasty.

Xiao Putuo is a tiny island in the Erhai Lake. Strictly speaking, it's not an island but a big reef. On Xiao Putuo, you can see a two-storied pavilion-style building. On the first floor, there is a statue of Sakyamuni and on the second floor is the statue of Kwan-yin.

To Mr. Gomin
Yes, you can buy the ticket and the nearest train station would be Lijiang. Buses are eay to find in Lijiang bus station, about 4 hours to Shangri-la. Yes, there are taxis, but it is too expensive. You may pay 600RMB per day.
