Sleepy Inn Lijiang
Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the word, she walks into mine.
Sleepy Inn Lijiang was converted from a Naxi minority family's house and garden. All the buildings reflect the rich fabric of the locale through their design and furnishings. Two main guestroom buildings include 17 comfortable guestrooms all with modernized bathrooms. A two-level house is situated in the back garden and serves as a multi-functional lounge. Sleepy Inn Lijiang has the only swimming pool with water coming from the snow mountain. The front yard is traditional Naxi style designed and a terrace located in the front yard has excellent views of the river and trees besides the house.
Sleepy Inn Lijiang is centrally located in the Shuhe Ancient Town, Lijiang, Yunnan Province of China. Shuhe Ancient Town is one of the three ancient towns of Lijiang. Different from the Dayan Ancient Town, Shuhe features more natural and peaceful elements. There are excellent views of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain in the town due to its proximate distance. The water supply in the town is spring water coming from the snow mountain. In addition, Shuhe Ancient Town used to be an important hub on the old Tea-Horse Road. This historic town was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997 for its multi-ethnic charm, historical milieu and architectural landscape.

Traditionally, Naxi minority residents have a special hunting activity which could be traced back to Yuan Dynasty around 800 years ago. It was also called "Men's Game" because only men are allowed to join this special hunting. The hunting has to be conducted by Men, falcons and hunting dogs. Local people raise falcons which are used as tempting baits during the hunting. It would be unforgettable once you experience this special "Men's Game".
