Bai Shui Tai (the White Water Mesa) locates at 101 kilometers southeast to the Zhongdian County Township, at the eastern foot of Haba jokul. She raises 2400 kilometers above the sea level, and occupies an area of one hundred thousand square meters. It is the largest mesa in China.

The mesa consist of calcium carbonate, which lasts thousands and thousand of years to deposit, facing the blue sky, forming a beautiful silvery sculpture of jade terrace. While looking from distance, it seems that a solid cascade is falling from the rich green forests.

Bai Di Village, where the Bai Shui Tai is located, is the source of Dongha culture of the Naxi nationallity. Their ancient grandfather, Aming, cultivated and missionized here, and created the world apprciated "Dongba picture-writings". On the eighth day of the second month each year of the lunar calender, the Naxi and other neighborhood nationalities would get together here for menology activities. This has been lasting hundreds of years. As the Naxi sayings goes: It is not a true Dongba if he does not pilgrimage at Baidi.

The American anthropologist Joseph Lock, an honored international specialist of Dongba culture, and many profound Chinese scholars, such as Mr. Tao Yunkui, LI Lingcan, and Zhao Yintang, have been here to study their scripture. Moreover, there is a Mo-rock poetry inscription at the north of Bai Shui Tai sculptured in the Ming Dynasty. Dear friends from afar, welcome to Bai Shui Tai!
