However, there are small pockets of interest: the Limi Yi around Wumulong and the Lahu of Nanmei are conservative ethnic groups while in Cangyuan the Wa try to revive their culture for tourism purposes.
While Lincang City proper is an unappealing conglomerate, the Dai areas outside the city remain attractive and only a few dozen kilometers lives Yunnan's most conservative Lahu community.
Gengma County, on the southern banks of the Nanding River, is another multi-ethnic county, with not only Dai and Wa, but also 3500 Bulang and Lahu. The county’s most important and prosperous town is not Gengma, but Mengding in the river’s valley.
Transport around Lincang can be difficult as seat limits on busses are rigidly enforced and minibusses are rare.
