Welcome to

Shaxi Laomadian Lodge

Laomadian signifies ‘Inn for old horses’ and it used to lodge caravan owners traveling on the Tea-Horse Caravan Road, from Xishuangbanna to Tibet and further, transporting and trading mainly tea, but also other merchandises like salt, silver, copper etc. Situated between Dali and Lijiang, near Jianchuan, Shaxi was one of the important trading centers on the Tea-Horse Caravan Road since several hundred years.  Winter 2006, after 4 years of restoration work by Swiss architects with the help of Jianchuan government and several Swiss and International fundings, Shaxi has regained its beauty and starts to attract visitors from afar to admire this one of the last well-conserved market centers on the famous Tea-Horse Caravan Road.

Shaxi Laomadian is a compound consists of 3 courtyards and 6 shop-fronts. It is being renovate into a modern Lodge with 9 standard rooms and 3 dormitories, a tea house and a fusion restaurant/bar (Karma Cafe).

欢迎来到

沙溪老马店客栈

150年悠久历史的老马店曾经是茶马古道上供马帮休息的客栈,马帮从西双版纳出发运输和交易茶叶和生活必须品,经大理、沙溪、丽江、香格里拉到拉萨,更远到印度,一路上在各个马店驿站落脚休息。沙溪为于剑川县,大理和丽江之间,一度是繁荣的交易中心,也是茶马古道上仅存完整的市集。2006年底,在瑞士专家亚克博士、瑞士联邦理工学院、剑川沙溪政府和国际资助下,合力完成对沙溪历经4年的修复工程,让沙溪重现昔日的光彩并开始吸引游客的目光。

沙溪老马店包含了3个院落和6间店铺,现在配备有9间客房、3间通铺、茶楼、餐厅和酒吧(老马店卡玛聚)等完整的功能和设备,是沙溪的一大亮点。
