Weishan is a forgotten old city where the first Kingdom ever built in Southwest— Nanzhao Kingdom. Before the Nanzhao, Yunnan was more of a continuously changing and sometimes unstable melting pot. So, because of the Nanzhao Kingdom, Yunnan’s culture and the economy got developed. The Emperor (Tang Dynasty) began to notice the area, and there was some contact between these 2 empires. The old town still has many old houses and local lifestyle. There is a Daoist mountain which is considered as the origin of the Kingdom. We’ll also visit a Muslim village with a really beautiful architecture and amazing history stories.
We often connected this trip to Kunming Experience. In this case, we operate the tour for 4 days. So, you can have a more diverse experience in a limited time.
If you have more time in Yunnan. We do recommend starting the trip from Weishan, the Ancient Kingdom. Then we’ll extend the trip up to Dali, Shaxi, Lijiang, and Shangri-La. Trip length will be 8 days at least.
