New join in-tour: November 4th-9th
Backroads of China Tours is running a join-in hiking tour from November 4th-9th, starting and finishing in Lijiang (Yunnan Province). The trek starts in Yuhu village at the foot of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain and climbs up to the village of Wenhai where you overnight in homestay. After a day’s trek across Jade Dragon Snow Mountain you arrive in Qiaotou and set out on the famous 2-day Tiger Leaping Gorge trek enjoying pristine snow-mountain scenery. After a side excursion to Haba Village and the White Water Terraces, we transfer to Shaxi where we soak up the old world charm of this ancient village, once an important stop on the Tea Horse Trade and Caravan Route. We’ll catch the Friday market, and take a day trekking tour to the 7th Century Buddhist Grottoes at Shibaoshan before returning to Lijiang.
A very good level of fitness is required for this hike. There are currently two others signed up. For a detailed itinerary and pricing information please Contact Us.
