10 Top Western China Tours

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.

TA feedback

Rita had help plan a once in a lifetime tour for us last spring that we cancelled due to Covid. CH refunded our deposit in one day and wished us luck and good health. She then offered to send us masks since they were impossible to find in the US in April. 2 weeks later we received ~200 masks from CH with no charge! What a great, ethical and knowledgeable travel agent. Would rebook in a mi Ute if we knew it was safe. More...

Had a wonderful time with our tour guides Cactus and Jin. In the time of COVID it was a great relief to have help sorting through protocols for entering tourist sights. Excellent lunch options. The juggling and sugar candy art in the hutong was a real treat. Great thing about touring now - no crowds. Highly recommended tour operator for anyone traveling to Beijing. More...
