Yunnan

Viist Yunnan

Introduction

Yunnan stands apart from the rest of China on the southwest frontier, shielded from the rest of the country by the mountainous provinces of Sichuan and Guizhou.

Yunnan has an unmatched diversity of landscapes and peoples, from the high Tibetan fringes in the northwest to the tropical rainforests on the borders of Burma and Vietnam and mighty rivers that flow through the central plains, all home to over a third of China's ethnic minorities.

Where to go in Yunnan

Zhongdian

Zhongdian, high in the borderlands between Yunnan, Sichuan and Tibet, is the last major town before the Himalayas.

Lijiang

Picturesque Lijiang is the spiritual capital of the Naxi Kingdom, a minority descended from Tibetan nomads who live in Yunnan and Sichuan.

Lake Lagu

A stunning mountain road leads to the partially forested home of the Mosuo peoples, beside Lake Lagu on the border with Sichuan province.

Shaxi

It is well worth venturing out from Dali to Shaxi, a former Silk Route trading post where Tibetan merchants sold their sturdy horses in return for tea.
