Magnificent Yunnan

Breathtaking scenery, charming old towns and an intoxicating mix of cultural identities combine to make Yunnan one of the most rewarding areas through which to travel in China. Combining the headline acts with some of the province’s hidden gems offers the chance to explore the many cultures that coexist here and enjoy a cross-section of the most spectacular landscapes. Journeying along ancient caravan routes reveals remote monasteries, historic teahouses and isolated minority communities living a traditional way of life. Head further afield and you’ll encounter deep gorges, idyllic yak meadows, sparkling blue lakes and thriving wetlands.
