It is around 15 degrees and the temperature may be less than 5 degrees at night and early morning. Yes, the tour need at least two days, starting from Hutiaoxia Town in Zhongdian to Daju Town in Lijiang, or Daju to Hutiaoxia Town. If you walk leisurely, 2.5 days are needed. It is not dangerous to hiking on your own, but you may come across some problems. Time for sunset at nearly 6:30pm.
