Sense Spring Vitality in Southwest China
5-Day Kunming, Luoping, and Wanfenglin Tour
Luoping — a place where you're spoiled for spring scenery — attracts people's eyes every February and March. The vast vistas of yellow flowers combine with the toothy or terraced landscape to form views of barely-imaginable beauty. We have the locals to thank for these heart-stirring scenes.
As you travel east from Kunming, you will be impressed by the limestone landforms (karst formations) that China abounds in. Enjoy the hills, terraces, and fields in Luoping. Marvel at the endless peak forest and peak clusters in Wanfenglin. But more than this, be touched by the peaceful rural life and hard-working local people that make the difficult-to-farm countryside burst into life with canola brilliance.
This 5-day Kunming, Luoping, and Wanfenglin tour is the best choice for your China spring outing. It is all about the spring, amazing landscapes, and rural life.

Kunming - well worth a visit.
An excellent visit to Kunming. The stone forest was spectacular, though there were a lot of steps and even with my hiking poles I has to give up on some areas. The city itself is vibrant and really interesting. Many thanks to my brilliant guide, Sophie, who understood my limitations and adapted the itinerary accordingly.more

The trip is pretty smooth and the tour…
The trip is pretty smooth and the tour guides are all pretty flexible and knowledgeable about the area. I really like Daisy during the trip. She is our tour guide at Dali. I made a comment that we would like to go to three tower and the temple and she arranged it right away. I think that is a good experience for foreigners and young kids as the site is unique and is historically important.more

Excellent Tour of Yunnan
China Highlights prepared an excellent trip for us in Yunnan. Murphy, Frank, Lily and Daniel were amazing! They were kind, knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make our trip enjoyable! We had the same driver for our time in Dali to Shangri-La and he was fantastic. He was kind, respectful and focused on the safety of his passengers! I would absolutely book another trip with these guides and driver. Thank you for a wonderful trip!more

What a memorable and smooth trip with China Highlights! I will most definitely be choosing China Highlights for my next adventure. My friend and I organized two private trips with them back to back, one through Qinghai/Gansu and this one through Yunnan. I give both experiences five stars. As for our Yunnan tour specifically, I believe that this trip is well-worth its value. How awesome is it to just “show up” and have everything organized for you, with friendly guides and drivers to take you where you need to go, explaining all you need to know along the way. The trip was seamless and well-organized, and accommodations were comfortable even when choosing the more economical options. We opted for the 8 day trip (the first and last day of which were arrival and departure, so 6 true days of sightseeing). This included Kunming, Dali, Lijiang, and Shangri-la. If you are okay with a high-paced trip, this is a great option to see the main highlights in a short time.more

Wonderful trip to Dali
Our trip to Dali was led by Daisy. It was such a beautiful city, rich in nature, culture, history, and of course good food. We were really lucky to be paired with Daisy - she was such a warm-hearted, thoughtful, and flexible guide. She was incredibly attentive to our energy levels throughout the day, knew so much about Yunnan’s history, and even led us tea tasting when it wasn’t originally on the itinerary. We are grateful for the chance to visit the beautiful Dali and to have Daisy guide us, and we would definitely use China Highlights for future tripsmore
