Lijiang Tours

Lijiang, enjoying the accolade "the pearl on the Yunnan plateau", is the destination not to miss on a Yunnan tour and the favorite place of American explorer, Josher Rock. Lijiang could be "a gentle woman", touching your heart with its romantic old towns and peaceful Lugu Lake. Or it could be "a handsome man", inviting you to hike along the magnificent Tiger Leaping Gorge and up Jade Dragon Snow Mountain.

If you are interested in minority culture, let's talk to a shaman of the Naxi ethnic minority, listen to a piece of Naxi music, and taste the Naxi pancakes.
