Lijiang attractions are dominated by the awesome scenery of places like Tiger Leaping Gorge and Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, but the ancient town of Lijiang itself is a window into China’s past. With museums, temples and ethnic minorities the tourist spots will certainly give you a cultural experience.

Lijiang is a great area for trekking, with mountains, lakes (like Lugu Lake), and the Yangtze in its thunderously gushing upper course. Our Lijiang tours take you to an ancient town surrounded by towering mountains and ensure you see the highlights.
