With a reputation as one of China’s more rugged regions, Yunnan is home to breathtaking displays of raw natural beauty. Snow-capped mountains form the background to high-altitude lakes while Tiger Leaping Gorge stuns with its incredible scale. Amidst all this are cobblestoned ancient towns such as Lijiang and Dali, vibrant ethnic minority cultures such as the Bai, Dai and Hani, and some of China’s greatest biodiversity to be found in a single province. Although the cultural and natural wealth of this region can be overwhelming, planning tours to Yunnan doesn’t have to be. Take heart in the expert advise of our locally based Travel Specialists, who can help tailor a private Yunnan trip that prioritizes your interests. Enjoy the freedom to explore Yunnan your own way.

We changed our mind and itinenary several times and communicated with Lucas by mail. The response was rather quick and each time our journey was adjusted. After the long conversation we decided to accept the offered China trip.
To file an application for the Chinese visa we needed an invitation letter, which was delivered just in time.

Backyard Travel were brilliant!
We were a little apprehensive before booking as it wasn?t a ?mainstream? travel company, but our holiday in China was fantastic.
Our organiser, Joy, was lovely to deal with and we got the impression that no request or query was too much hassle.
Additionally, the price was very competitive especially given the fact that you have you own tour guides.
We really can?t recomment Backyard Travel enough.

What’s Special about Yunnan?

It’s hard to find anything that’s not special about Yunnan! This beautiful, rugged region can scratch just about any travel itch—whether you’re craving adventures in stunning nature, learning the customs of ethnic minority groups, exploring ancient fortress towns, or journeying by train through jaw-dropping mountain landscapes. We’ll help you create the custom private Yunnan tours that you envision.



CHARACTER

Yunnan is bursting with character, and of such varied hues and tones. The diversity of the ethnic minorities who call this province home lends wonderfully unique traditions and lifestyles to the region.



CLIMATE

The best times of year to enjoy a private tour of Yunnan are spring and fall, when temperatures are mild and little precipitation. We especially love the months of March and April, and from September to November in Yunnan.



ENTERTAINMENT

While you won’t find cutting-edge nightlife in Yunnan, the provincial capital Kunming boasts some incredible cultural and dining venues. Yunnan cuisine is also world-renowned and sure to keep foodies happy.



CULTURE

If you’re looking for fascinating cultures and customs, you’ve come to the right place. Boasting the most ethnic minority groups in one province, Yunnan features unique traditions, famed cuisines, remote villages and cities steeped in history.



LANGUAGE

Southwestern Mandarin is the language most widely used in Yunnan, but you’ll also encounter distinct dialects and languages spoken by numerous ethnic minorities. Never fear, our English-speaking Travel Specialists will help you navigate.



HISTORY

Yunnan is believed to be one of the first areas of human habitation in China. As rich civilizations sprung up, Yunnan became home to several mighty kingdoms before China’s unification. Today, it is the most ethnically diverse province in China.
