EXPLORE ANCIENT YUNNAN: DALI, SHAXI & LIJIANG
Yunnan is a destination filled to the brim with history and unique culture. Often overlooked, the mountainous region of Yunnan in the Southwest of China is one of the most authentic and beautiful must-see places of this dynamic country.
This tailor-made tour into China’s past takes you deep into the countries backyard to sample a way of life that’s barely changed for centuries. On your five day / four night tour you will have the chance to learn about two distinct hill tribes of China; the Bai and Naxi people, both of whom have a fascinating way of life far removed from anything you may be familiar with.
You’ll also have the chance to visit some of the most scenic cultural areas in China on guided walking tours, including visits to the ‘stone treasure mountain’ of Shibaoshan, Lion Hill and Black Dragon Pond from which you can view the majestic Jade Dragon Mountain.
When not out investigating the sublime nature and countryside, your stay will also allow you to experience the laid-back way of life in the towns of Shuanglang, Wase, Dali, Lijiang and Shaxi where one of the major past-times is relaxing with a spot people-watching.
