Additional Information

The South West province of Yunnan is arguably one of the most diverse regions in China. Dramatic high altitude vistas, panoramic views across kaleidoscopic rice terraces and beautifully preserved Chinese architecture are just a taste of the many highlights this area has to offer. On this trip we’ll discover the mountainous region of the north with an opportunity to experience Tiger Leaping Gorge, one of the most scenic one-day hikes in the country. We’ll spend time at the rice paddies of Yuanyang county, before ending at the capital Kunming, the ‘Capital of Eternal Spring’.  This trip offers a real insight into the culture of the Yunnan people, home to over 50 different ethnic minorities unique to this region. There are plenty of opportunities to sample the mouth-watering cuisine, which takes its flavours from the neighbouring countries of Tibet, Laos, Burma and Vietnam.
