Kunming, an ancient cultural city, also known as “the City of Perpetual Spring”, is the capital of Yunnan situated 6,213 feet above sea level with an annual average temperature of 58 Fo. It is a place were 26 ethnic cultures have come together over many centuries. Known for its remarkable Stone Forest, mild climate, beautiful plateau landscape, and ethnic folklore, Kunming never ceases to delight visitors with each passing day.

Next, embark on an inspiring time journey to Zhongdian, a land so stunningly beautiful they call it Shangri-la. At an altitude of 10,000 feet, this “lost horizon” is located between Yunnan & Tibet hidden in lush meadows and snow mountains famed for its breathtaking landscape, timeless Tibetan culture and centuries-old monasteries. Highlights here include visits to Emerald Pagoda Lake (Bitahai), Songzanlin Monastery, White Water Terraces (Bai Shui Tai).

Proceed by road through spectacular mountain sceneries to Tiger Leaping Gorge, a canyon on the Yangtze River believed to be the deepest gorge in the world that overlooks the rushing Golden Sands (Jingsha) River. Your unforgettable Yunnan journey is topped off by reaching the ancient city of Lijiang, a stunning ancient city set amid towering mountain ranges beautifully accented by centuries old architectures, mesmerizing landscape, time-honored traditions and warm friendly people. Here visitors enjoy leisurely strolls about the cobbled Old Town to shop and dine, a visit to the picturesque Black Dragon Pond and a glimpse of one of its nearby Naxi minority villages.
