Enchanting Yunnan is brimming with diversity, from the myriad of different ethnic tribes to the wildly changing landscapes. Trek through the magnificent Tiger Leaping Gorge, unearth the secrets of Lijiang old town, learn about the customs and folklore of the local tribespeople of Dali and revel in the natural beauty of the mountains and grasslands of Shangri La, on the edge of the Tibetan plateau.

The vast southern province of Yunnan is a melting pot of ancient history, rich cultures and spectacular natural beauty. The capital city of Kunming is known for its balmy climate, holy temples and surrounding national parks. Close to the Tibetan border lies the alpine city of Shangri-La, with its strong Tibetan influence and spectacular Himalayan panoramas. Visit the nearby Ganden Sumtseling, Yunnan’s most sacred Tibetan monastery and hike past glittering lakes and meadows of grazing yaks. From the vast rolling rice terraces of Yuanyang and the Confucian temples of Jianshui, to the glittering lakes of Dali La, Yunnan is visually spellbinding.
