Named after a network of historic caravan paths that created a vital tea carrying route between Tibet and Burma, this LUX Tea Horse Road hotel is situated in the heart of ancient Lijiang, close to the main square. These historic roots are evident throughout this 5 star boutique hotel and its welcoming guestrooms. Laid out in the traditional courtyard formation, the LUX aims to recapture the essence of its past, mixing modern facilities with an atmosphere that evokes those intrepid and epic journeys.

The hotel also offers tea lessons and Naxi cooking classes, as well as bicycle hire and horse-riding excursions.
