Historically, culturally and geographically, Yunnan Province is one of the most diverse and alluring destinations in China. 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). Heading off the trails, past the guidebook cities and into the incredible Meili Snow Mountains we start our trek. We walk 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 sacred waterfalls under towering 7000m snow capped peaks before returning to the regional capital of Kunming.
