Sleep and Eat
* 02h00m <sleep name="Naxi Family Guesthouse" alt="" address="" directions="" phone="08878806928/13988758424" url="" checkin="" checkout="" price="dm: ¥20, d/tw: ¥40, d with bathroom: ¥70" lat="" long="" email="" fax="">A range of neat rooms looking into the central courtyard. Basic shared washing facilities with warmish showers and nice garden views from the toilet. Good-value freshly cooked Western/Chinese food made with locally grown produce (try the pumpkin!) -- this is hands-down the very best food available anywhere along the whole trail, so fill up while you can. Very authentic feel, great alternative to staying in Qiaotou. Pickup by Jeep or horse and reservations can be made in advance.</sleep>
* 05h00m <sleep name="Tea-Horse Trade Guesthouse" alt="" address="" directions="" phone="13988717292, 13988707922" url="" checkin="" checkout="" price="Double or twin room &yen;50, shared bathroom, &yen;120 for double or twin ensuite, triple bed room &yen;90" lat="" long="" email="" fax="">Friendly atmosphere, unbelievably nice owners (after seeing that we didn't finish one of our dishes at breakfast, they took it off our bill –– almost unheard of in China), very tasty food with huge menu, all freshly cooked by the owners children. Affordable massages (&yen;50/hour -- though they aren't always open) and very nice staff. Toilets are outside, Chinese-style, without doors, . Be sure to bring your own toilet paper. Smaller then Halfway, about 20 rooms. No heaters in the room, and the mattresses are almost painfully thin, but there are very thick warm blankets.</sleep>
* 06h30m <sleep name="Halfway Lodge" alt="" address="" directions="" phone="" url="" checkin="" checkout="" price="&yen;25 for dorm beds." lat="" long="" email="" fax="">Cheap beer, decent food, and simple and clean rooms. If you come just to eat, the service can be very poor. Double room with shared bath &yen;50. En suite rooms are &yen;130. Unusual (and completely unnecessary) "scenic toilet" with views of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. Nice pictures can be had from their "Inspiration Point" area for dining. Be sure you can make it before dark. This guesthouse can be very noisy as it is huge. If you are tired and it is evening, stay the night at one of these guesthouses - don't walk any further as the walk gets quite slippery/steep down to Tina's and would be dangerous in the dark (no barriers to falling off the mountain).</sleep>
* 08h30m <sleep name="Tina's Youth Hostel" alt="" address="" directions="" phone="+86 887 8202258" url="" checkin="" checkout="" price="" lat="" long="" email="" fax="">More than a Youth hostel, they added recently some twin/double rooms. 24 hour hot water is advertised, but there was no hot water available during entire stay. This is by far the most touristy place (in a bad way) along the trail. Chinese (and some Western) food on the menu, but as of April 2012, the prices for food are considerably higher than anywhere else along the trail, and the quality is noticeably less. Internet and WiFi does not seem to be offered anymore. Uncomfortable beds, inferior blankets, pitiful heating pads, and no insulation makes the room colder inside than it is outside. The owner, Tina, seems to be the only person who speaks English. Staff is generally unpleasant to deal with. Minivan, which fits up to 7 people, costs ¥150 to Qiaotou, and ¥350 to Lijiang (February 2012). Can make regular bus to Lijiang stop for ¥50 per person at 16:00, you can also ask for this Bus to stop at Jane's Guesthouse if you need to pick up your bags. All tickets to be booked and paid upfront in the morning.</sleep>
* 08h40m <sleep name="Tibet Guest House" alt="" address="" directions="" phone="00 86 13988740050" url="" checkin="" checkout="" price="20" lat="" long="">Run by a Tibetan family since it opened in May 2006. Price &yen;20-100. Hot water 24hours, Tibetan meal, western meals, chinese meals, plus warranty cool beer.</sleep>
