Christmas in the Canyon
Yunnan is one of China’s most distinctive provinces, renowned for its spectacular scenery, its cuisine, and for the many diverse within its borders.
For centuries Yunnan’s proximity to Laos, Myanmar (Burma), and Vietnam, as well as the provinces of Guangxi, Guizhou, Sichuan, and Tibet, has made it a vibrant hotbed of cultural exchange, driven by trade and migration.
Lying east of the Himalayas, the province affords some of the world’s most appealing mountain landscapes. Its rugged terrain shielded local people from much of the turbulence of China’s past, helping to insulate and preserve the traditions of its many ethnic minority cultures.
Trekking the Tea Horse Road with us, you’ll tackle arduous terrain and interact with local communities along an ancient trade route which, for over a thousand years, connected the peoples of Southwest China.
Get ready to experience China like never before and take home a new, unique perspective of the Middle Kingdom.
