A couple of months have past again and we've been active on creating and publishing new tours. Ranging from one to 22 days and from Yunnan to Hunan province, we are proud to share today our latest China tour updates with you. Get an overview right here!
With an average elevation of around 2000 meters above sea level, Yunnan features huge differences in altitude: while Yunnan's north borders Tibet and the Eastern Himalayas (up to 6740 m), the subtropical landscapes of the south are not higher than 100 meters.
Yunnan is famous for its beautiful scenery and pleasant climate - perfect for holiday and relaxation. But it's also getting famous for something completely different. Have you ever heard of 100k ultra marathons at elevations of over 3800 meters and other unique running events?
I had some days off last December and used the opportunity to visit Xishuangbanna in Yunnan's south. In a little village close to Menghun I could witness the processing of traditional papermaking. It's as easy as fascinating!
