  1. The Classic Tiger Leaping Gorge Trekking Adventure 6D5N, Fully Guided

    close

    Trek through Tiger Leaping Gorge and explore one of Asia's finest geological wonders. This is one of the finest treks in China, offering breathtaking natural scenery, diverse landscapes and historical attractions that China has to offer. This hiking adventure boasts six days of views that will leave the most seasoned traveler inspired.

    Three hours drive from Lijiang, vertical cliffs rise dramatically from the turquoise waterways to the Tibetan glaciers - Jade Dragon Snow Mountain (5596m) and Haba Snow Mountain (5396m). The Jinsha River, a tributary of the mighty Yangtze River, cuts its way through the gorge, carving a twisting path through verdant terraced farmlands, imposing limestone ridges, and quiet villages.

    Set off on your journey by following the legendary Jinsha river, accompanied by the sound of it crashing against the rock walls as you head to Walnut Grove. A new day sees you turn uphill, falling in single-file behind the farmer and packhorse carrying produce destined for Naxi villages along the road. Be welcomed into the home of locals to savour a pause and a cup of Pu'er. Finally, descend into fabled Shangri-La to explore golden-roofed temples and Tibetan market fare.

    The Tiger Leaping Gorge, one of China's finest trails, awaits those willing to raise their heartbeats a little!

    close

    13-day grand traversing in southern Yunnan through Dali, Lijiang, Tacheng, Cizhong, Meili, Benzilan and Shangri-la, a voyage of breathtaking landscapes and wonderful cultures for adventurous travelers. Discover China's rich ethnic diversity as you walk one part of the Ancient Tea and Horse Road between Dali, Shaxi and Lijiang. En route you'll meet Naxi and Bai ethnic minority people whose old ways endure. Hike into the Meili Snow Mountains and explore untamed and wild terrains at the most sacred mountain in the world. Bike beside pristine highland lakes, journey into valleys and climb up mountains, enjoying the wonderful world of wildlife including golden snub-nosed monkey and impressive flora. Being awed by natural scenery, you'll also be spoilt by delightful boutique accommodation and authentic Yunnan and Tibetan cuisines throughout the journey.

    Yunnan, which literally means 'South of the Clouds', is home to some of the most diverse cultures, ecology, and landscapes in China. With verdant low-lying valleys, spectacular white-capped mountains, rustic towns and villages and vibrant ethnic minority communities, Yunnan has long inspired both poets and travelers. As a very distinct part of China, Yunnan is home to the 'Eighteen Oddities', eighteen aspects of life that distinguish it from other provinces.

    On this grand traversing journey, you'll explore Yunnan's stunning landscapes, experience minority culture, and travel along part of the Ancient Tea and Horse Road. Travel to the southeastern tip of the Tibetan Plateau to discover this collection of exquisite world-class retreats that blend harmoniously into their surroundings. Rise with the sun to a view of Yunnan's tallest and holiest summit. Practice yoga amidst fertile mountain valleys and immerse yourself in rich Tibetan culture as you taste local cuisine and chant sutras with a Lama. You'll have plenty opportunities to explore local traditions, sample country cooking and enjoy tea ceremonies.

    Away from colourful tales and adventures by day, you’ll stay and rest in 5-star or boutique hotels by night. All the hotels' architecture and interiors strongly reflect an influence from the local cultures with contemporary design touches and offering stunning views.

    This trip is considered a moderate adventure. Moderate adventure includes full days outside the hotel, with drives of up to 3 ½ hours on mainly well-maintained, paved roads. We may spend up to 4-5 hours walking, hiking or biking. However, we can tailor make itinerary to suit your fitness level.

    Though you'll be traveling in some of China's most spectacular mountainous regions, high altitudes often make activities more difficult. In the unlikely event of altitude sickness, emergency evacuation measures will be taken. Your field guides is well-equipped to handle any medical emergencies. However, travel insurance is highly recommended.
