About Stone Drum House
We are a small family run rock climbing hostel, located close to the market town of Shigu and just one hour from the famous old town of Lijiang.
The house is set in a beautiful valley, surrounded by towering limestone cliffs, jagged mountain peaks and pristine forests. With fresh air, clear blue skies and unspoilt nature, it feels a long way from the hustle and bustle of Chinese city life.
We arrived here in 2015 and have lovingly restored the traditional Naxi house as a base for rock climbers.
Currently there are around 160 routes from grade 5.7 to 5.14a, but with new routes going up every week and massive potential this will soon be one of China's top climbing destinations.
It's also only 65km from the crack climbing paradise of Liming, making this area unique having both traditional climbing on red sandstone, as well as limestone sports climbing.
