Trip Advisor Yunnan tour reviews
One of our highlights was to meet one of the local Dongba of the Naxi people in his family home. The Naxi are one of China's minority groups...We were so inspired to learn about the Naxi people and their language and culture. Our guide Deniel had excellent English and was really informative about the local history and customs and took us on a breathtaking high level walk above leaping tiger gorge, making some incredible memories. — Philippa H from UK
