Average time to visit

From the subtropical lowlands in the south up to glacier-capped mountains in the north, Yunnan is a province of extremes. The climate varies so much across this vast and diverse area, that it has given rise to an ancient Chinese saying: “You can enjoy all four seasons on the same mountain, with each just a few miles from the next”. Generally speaking, most of Yunnan province is mild in winter and cool in summer, with large variances in temperature occurring across the day. Mornings can start with a wintery chill, and warm up to 25°C by lunchtime. Spring and Autumn are mild and pleasant and the best times to visit Yunnan, despite May being the rainiest month of the year. For snow-capped mountains and dramatic alpine scenes, the winter months of November to January can be spectacular.

As the popularity of Yuanyang rice terraces skyrocket and tourists flock into the area, Vinetree Honghegu Tented Resort is an off-the-beaten eco retreat where you can truly immerse in the local culture and visit the less-known UNESCO rice terraces.

In Vinetree Honghegu Tented Resort, abandoned buildings from a former Hani village are beautifully restored into a modern tent directly overlooking into the beautiful Jiayin Rice Terrace, which offers beautiful landscapes across different seasons. A key feature of Jiayin Rice Terrace is the cherry blossoms and palms which are planted around the area, which bursts into a symphony of colours especially from February to March.

There are 17 tent yards located within the property, as well as bath pools and Lezongshe Restaurant which serves Asian cuisine.

Other attractions around the area include the Samaba Rice Terrace, which is the biggest of the UNESCO-listed Honghe Hani Terrace. The rice terrace uniquely blends into the scenery of the surrounding forest, river and the adjacent Suhong Village.
