The beauty of Yunnan must be seen to be believed. Create your Yunnan tours to Kunming, Dali, Lijiang, Shangri-La, and further discover many untouched paradises!
Yunnan lies in the southwest of China, well known for its spellbinding landscape from the high snow peaks edging Tibetan Plateau to tropical rainforest in Xishuangbanna. The ancient Tea and Horse Road linked all the most popular destinations in Yunnan, from the original source of all tea - Xishuangbanna, heading north up the former trading post Shaxi Old Town, then further north to Lijiang Old Town, along the Tiger Leaping Gorge, finally ending in the mountainous areas of Shangri-La.
Given its incredible natural beauty and rich ethnic culture, Yunnan is also a heaven for photographers. Make your way to Yuanyang Rice Terraces, Dongchuan Red Land, Lugu Lake, Nujiang Grand Canyon… and meet local minority groups for their original old towns and splendid customs and costumes. If you’re a seasoned traveler to Yunnan with adventure in mind, it’s time for you to explore some real hidden beauty, through breathtaking wildness, remote villages and mist-covered mountains and mighty valleys...
