There are nearly 70 climbing routes in Dali, spread across 4 crags. (If you include nearby Liming and Kunming, there are more than 350 routes, which is more than enough to justify a trip out here). In Dali alone, there is gneiss slab, sedimentary rock, and overhanging limestone, with potential for trad and multi-pitch and hundreds of boulder problems.
Dali boasts great weather all year-round, no access issues, awesome views, and an overall amazing atmosphere. It's a great place to spend rest days, and there are plenty of other activities besides rock climbing to keep you busy. Trekking, cycling, kayaking, swimming, and even paragliding!
