Starting in Kunming, the capital of Yunnan province, this tour will first take you to Lijiang, a delightful Naxi town located near the Tibetan border, before entering the spectacular gorge via roads set among terraced hills.
From here you will walk along enchanting - and at times hair raising - paths overlooking a fall of 210 meters (689 ft) and a series of more than twenty rapids. Walking through dramatic mountain hamlets, you will arrive at a charming village to wind down and enjoy a hearty meal before continuing with your hike.
