If you want to really experience Yunnan’s diversity, you have to go deep into the northwest, where the mountains are tall and river gorges deep. Several major rivers flow into the Yunnan from Tibet and it is amazing how they carve up the scenery. On the several loops we usually organize in this part of the province, you will encounter a plentitude of weather patterns, cuisines, and languages. Get ready for a truly amazing rollercoaster!

We always recommend our guests to be as active as possible. But obviously we stay within the limits of everyone’s ability. This route is extremely flexible and can be done almost entirely without any hiking or cycling.
But it is just gorgeous to hike in the mountains. So if you are up for it, we can definitely schedule many day hikes throughout this route!
Also, we can arrange cycling. Amazing views! We can do cycling as a half-day activity or arrange it throughout the whole trip. The amount of kilometers is completely flexible, from 20 kilometers up to a 100!
We’ll stay in a very nice courtyard in Lijiang!
For single travelers or couples, we will arrange an SUV or spacious sedan with a driver-guide if available.
for 3-4-5 guests, we will use a Buick GL8 or Chinese brand “DaTong”.
For 6 guests and up, we’ll be traveling with an 18-seat officially registered tourist van, operated by one of the best drivers in Yunnan, Dali local Yin Guangtao.
