Baoshan Stone Village: possible as a day trip from Lijiang?

Can anyone who visited Baoshan Stone Village inform us whether it is possible to reach this place on a day trip from Lijiang: through a travel agent, by public transportation or by chartering a taxi or minivan? It is not our intention to stay there nor to trek any farther as some organized tours do, but just to walk in the area outside the village for the panoramic view on the vilage, the mountains and the river. All related informations (recommended travel agents / guides / taxi drivers with a basic knowledge of Enlish are most welcome!

Fine in one day. You need to hire a car. Very hard for non-local to deal with public transfer. Leave more time to Shanxi.

Not really possible to do a day trip from Lijiang, as at least 3 hours driving plus half an hour walk. So if you start at 8am won't reach til lunchtime, and then only a few hours, a walk uphill and drive back. Plus you have to pay entry to Yulong mountain, which is 105y, plus old town ticket 80y.

There aren't many people that go there. Only one guesthouse of note.

A driver Jeff who lives in a nearby village ans speaks great English is a good option. wendy_ka at hotmail.com for information.
