Where is the mystical Shangri-La? The answer is hidden in the wrinkles of the Hengduan Mountains in the northwest of Yunnan Province.
Shangri-La can be found in the chanting of the monks and lamas of Songzanlin Monastery. It can also be seen at the top of the Meili Snow Mountains, which have never been summited. You may find it in the valley of the Three Parallel Rivers or in the forest where the Yunnan golden monkeys live. This 6-day Shangri-La adventure tour will take you off the beaten path and help you find a hidden door to the paradise.
Indulge in the incredible view of 13 snowcapped peaks. Let the icy mountain and white pagodas purify your heart.
Drive alongside the Lancang River (Mekong River) to discover untouched natural beauty and Tibetan people.
Meet an incredible protected animal - the Yunnan golden monkey - in an old-growth forest.

Best experience ever!
Our tour guide Mervyn was extremely knowledgeable. We had to change our plans due to a virus closure and she found other activities that we loved! By the end of the trip we felt like we had made a close friend and would enjoy spending time together again.

A Hasstle Free Experience with China Highlights
During Covid crisis, I wanted to use a travel agent even though I am quite good at planning my own trips. It's been great to have everything taken care of and the knowledge that if our trip got cancelled, instead of dealing with 5 different organizations for refund, CH would do that for me made a difference too.

Wonderful family experience
The children really liked making their own terracotta warriors and biking on the wall. Because of Covid, the usual crowds were gone and we had lots of space and great views.
