10 Top Western China Tours

Western China consists of Tibet, Gansu, Xinjiang, Yunnan, and Guizhou, offering diverse landscapes and exotic cultures.

Dominated by sunken basins, rolling plateaus, rainbow-colored mountains, and the highest Himalayan plateaus, remote Western China – with a pure blue sky – is paradise for those who love photography and discovering routes off the beaten path.

With the lowest population density in China, Western China still manages to have 44 ethnic minorities. It's a region that's unlike the rest of China. It's also a good place for curious world wanderers to experience a variety of cultures and lifestyles.
