Tibetan Yoga Adventure
In the summer of 2019, we will ascent the Tibetan plateau to do one of our most exciting trips yet. We will blend our intimate knowledge of the Great Outdoors around the Genie Mountain in Litang with a masterclass in the unique Tibetan yoga exercises known as Lu Jong. This tour will be a traverse from the northwest of Yunnan all the way up to the 4000+ meters plateau deep in the Tibetan parts of Sichuan. Our aim is to get as intimate as we can with the Tibetan ways of life, and do that through the careful practice of Lu Jong and the appreciation of the formidably pristine nature around us.
DAY 1 – Thursday the 4th of July 2019 – “Welcome to Chengdu”
Arrival in Chengdu. Transfer to comfortable hotel. Welcome dinner.
We have ranked this expedition in the “INTERMEDIATE-DIFFICULT” category. This means accessibility is relatively low, altitude is moderate to high (2500 – 4500 meters) and there are no real technical trails or exposed terrain. All of the expeditions in this category are suitable for outdoor lovers with hiking experience, if they have a stong physique, have some altitude experience and do not suffer from obesity or high blood pressure. We will provide very detailed information about all the distances and how to deal with the thin air. We travel with a small group, so we can still give very customized service. We will use an expedition-style approach, so that we can practice Lu Jong yoga at the camp sites. We are able organize shorter more challenging excursions from the campsites for the more experienced members of the group.
We will stay in 3 and 4-star hotels.
The 4 Nights on the mountain we’ll stay in a top of the line camp with large dining room tent, double wall expedition tents to sleep with comfortable high-tech mattresses and bedding.
One night we’ll stay over at our Tibetan friends in their village.
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.
