​Napa Lake in Shangri-la, southwest China's Yunnan Province. Napa means 'the lake behind the forests' in the local Tibetan language. Napa Lake was included in the list of wetland of international importance in 2005. It's a migration hub for many rare birds such as black-necked cranes which migrate here to spend the winter every year. [Photo: China Plus/Shi Jie]
