Historically, culturally and geographically, Yunnan Province is one of the most diverse and alluring destinations in China. Our unique remote itinerary encompasses much of this diversity. We journey to the remarkable ancient city of Lijiang, set amongst the stunning surrounds of the Jade Dragon Mountain and stay with minority groups in a homestead at the beautiful setting of Lugu Lake. We visit the extensive Tiger Leaping Gorge before heading to the Tibetan town of Zhongdian (or Gyalthang as it is known to Tibetans).

From here we head off the trails, past the guidebook cities and into the incredible Meili Snow Mountains where we start our trek. Our introductory trek takes us on an inner Kora (pilgrimage route) into an incredibly stunning area of ancient forest, lush flowering valleys, dramatic glaciers and secluded Tibetan monasteries. We stay with a Tibetan family in a guesthouse in the spectacular village of upper Yuben and visit the sacred waterfalls under towering 7000m snow capped peaks before returning to the capital of Kunming.
