The "Yunnan Discovery" trip starts from Shangri-La City and ends in Kunming. It is a bicycle trip that takes 12 days taking you through Bai Shui Tai, Tiger Leaping Gorge, Lijiang and 6 other destinations in China. "Yunnan Discovery" is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation in hotels, transport, meals and others.

Vibrant and diverse are words that perfectly describe China’s southern province of Yunnan. Graced with spectacular natural landscapes, multicultural inhabitants, and fresh mountain air, Yunnan is the perfect mix of great cycling and local flavor. Home to both famous landscapes and landmarks, like Shangri-La and Tiger Leaping Gorge, to lesser known sites like the karst terraces of Bai Shui Tai, Yunnan is both a stunning and fascinating exploration of China's treasures beyond the Great Wall!

On the edge of Tibet Autonomous region, acclimatize to the high altitude in fabled Shangri-La as you prepare for the journey ahead. Then it's onto the bikes to cycle through Tibetan minority settlements among impressive mountainous scenery and even more impressive climbs. Descend deeper into Yunnan to discover more fantastic landscapes- limestone karsts and majestic river gorges- alongside colorful tribal minorities that call the province home.

Cruise along rolling terrain and tackle long climbs as you wind into beautiful green valleys and experience more of traditional culture amid the Han Chinese towns, left unchanged for centuries. Cobbled streets and ancient architecture set against a backdrop of snow-capped peaks define much of the scenery along the way as you explore the fascinating and timeless beauty of Yunnan!
