8 days Shangri La Discovery Trip


Kunming/Lijiang/Tiger Leaping Gorge-Shangri La/Deqi/Kunming

Trip Type:
Ethnic Culture and Folk Arts, Landscape and Nature, Adventure Travel  

Introduction: This is an exciting adventure trip to expore Shangri la area in Yunnan: Tranquil villages at the foot of the magnificent mountains, nomads on the green grassland, solemn monasteries, colorful prayer flags, smiling lamas, the horse-racing festivals and the pilgrimage to the sacred mountains are just a few of the things that we can experience on this trip. Furthermore, the people s are very hospitable to any visitors to their homeland. That is, where I personally believe that the name of Shangri-la comes from.  Similar to its diverse terrain, ethnic minorities are also found in greater numbers here than anywhere else in China. Over 28 recognized ethnic groups are found in Yunnan. More remarkably, each group still retains much of its individual identity, including customs, dialect, and a way of dress that is as fascinating as it is colorful.

The guide is Excellent. No hesitations, fluid speaking ability, easily understood. I hope one day to return with my family and visit rural China. So far I've only been on a short afternoon tour of Fuzhou, arranged mostly through the conference I attended, but hosted by Grace -- who is an excellent tour guide.---Martin Damus (Canada)
