Fall in Love with the Heavenly Palette of Colors
6 Days Jianshui and Yuanyang Tour
The southeast of Yunnan Province has another kind of beauty. It is not as popular as the middle and the northwest, but it is definitely worthy of a visit if you are interested in Chinese culture and the unique views hidden in a remote area.
Admire the classic ancient buildings in Jianshui and recharge your spirit with the spectacular sight of the sprawling Yuanyang Rice Terraces. The ingenious local people have created a splendid hill-farming culture and make their centuries-old living through their wisdom and hard work.
Tour 'Wow' Points
Lose the Crowds in a Less-visited Stone Forest Area
Skip the touristy spots loved by Chinese people. Visit a less crowded area — the Naigu Stone Forest. You will feel that you are walking in a national geological park, but not a tourist attraction.
Find the Soul of Chinese Architecture
Admire a fascinating collection of traditional Chinese folk dwellings and temples. The planned yards and gardens are aesthetically matched with the furnished rooms, halls, and the overall structure of the architecture, making this a very charismatic place.
Capture the Dance of Sunlight on the Rice Terraces
Enjoy spectacular views of the stunning mountain terraces from Duoyishu Village and Tiger Mouth Pass at sunrise and sunset, when light reflects off the paddy water creating a magnificent color show.

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.
