Approximately 40Kms to the north of Dali, China is a lovely tourist attraction called the Butterfly Spring. It is located at the foothills of Mount Shenmo, one of the peaks of Mount Cangshan. The Butterfly Spring is actually a square pool that has a lot of ancient trees around it. The most significant tree is a massive decumbent tree that spans the surface of the pool. In the spring season, the tree is filled with bright blossoms which attract thousands of colorful butterflies. The flowers and butterflies blend together to form the most beautiful canopy that is worth photographing. The Bai ethnic group gather together at this site for the annual Butterfly Meet which is a cultural festival.
