Affable Mr Yang has been guiding foreign tourists around Lè Shān since the 1970s. His hearing is going fast but his expertise is not. It's best to text message him to make arrangements. His signature half-day tour includes a calligraphy demonstration, an old-town stroll and a visit to a villager’s home. Transport, lunch and his services as an English-speaking guide are included.

He can also book tickets.
