With its amazing geography, Yunnan functions as a throughway for major rivers like the Salween, Mekong, Yangzi and Pearl rivers. Neither of these is real “Yunnanese”. That role is reserved for the Red River. From just south of Dali, this waterway cuts its way ferociously straight all the way to Hanoi and cuts the 2000-meter-high Yunnan-Guizhou plateau off to make way for a complex network of subtropical valleys blending into the countryside of the Southeast Asian neighbors. This itinerary takes us to the Red River area. First, on the program are the historic towns of Jianshui and Shiping. After this we’ll descend into the hot and humid river valley, only to climb up the mountains at the other side and explore the amazing formations of rice terraces built by the native Hani people over the centuries.
We often connected this trip to Kunming Experience. In this case, we operate the tour for 6 days. So you can have a more diverse experience in a limited time.
If you have limited time in Yunnan. We do recommend starting the trip from Jianshui. Then the trip length will be 4 days.
This is a perfect trip for the people who like the architecture, tofu, and the amazing rice terraces.
* We hold the authority to make minor changes to the program depending on the conditions.
We can arrange cycling in the Mile to explore the hot spring. The day to rice terrace can be half-day hiking or less. Our outdoorsiness about this trip is very flexible, can totally be customized according to your request!!
We’ll be staying in a very beautiful courtyard which is built in Qing Dynasty in Jianshui.
In Honghe County, we’ll stay in the only 4 stars hotel in the region, Yun Ti Hotel.
For single travelers or couples, we will arrange an SUV or spacious sedan with a driver-guide if available.
for 3-4-5 guests, we will use a Buick GL8 or Chinese brand “DaTong”.
For 6 guests and up, we’ll be traveling with an 18-seat officially registered tourist van, operated by one of the best drivers in Yunnan, Dali local Yin Guangtao.
