Overview

Book
Travel to one of the most stunning and diverse region in China, Yunnan province. Trace back to the ancient Tea Horse trail and learn about Bai people's culture in Dali and Shaxi, take a short hike through Tiger Leaping Gorge and enjoy its draw-dropping scenery, wander through a Tibetan village in the Shangrila region and unveil the mysteries of Tibetan Buddhism in the little Potala - Ganden Sumtseling Gompa. It's a different take on China - the authentic, the rural, off the beaten track.

Highlights

    • Travel through the best of Yunnan, one of the most beautiful and diverse regions in China. This is not the vision of mega cities and bustling streets that most picture when they think of China - be prepared to be surprised!
    • Visit our local Bai friends, learn about how they make their own special kind of cheese and enjoy a tasty, hearty home-cooked meal together.
    • Hike through the most stunning parts of Tiger Leaping Gorge, listening to the Jinsha Rver roaring through the mist capped mountains.
    • Wander through a Tibetan village in the dreamy Shangrila pasture lands. Learn about Tibetan culture over a steaming cup of yak butter tea.
    • Travel in comfort in private vehicles and a scenic flight from Shangrila back to Kunming.

South West China is still visitable with clear blue skies and pleasant sunshine. The Leaping Tiger Gorge Track is a remarkable walk, even shortened by 4.5 hours by the construction of a super highway up the escarpment to Tibet. The towns visited west of Kunmin are fascinating and best appreciated in the early morning, before the hordes of locals tourists descend on them, or late afternoon, after they depart.

This was a great trip. We visited all the places we wanted and many places we had never heard about. Taking some of the optional activities is a must. The outdoor shows in Yangshuo and from the Yangzi Cruise were absolutely amazing.

South West China trip was amazing and varied - bike riding, hiking, visiting ethic minorities and visiting Yunnan Province's main sights.

Andrew H,  

This trip has many highlights including a manageable trek above Tiger Leaping Gorge which is just fantastic and gives a great birds eye view of the gorge and river. Really worthwhile.

China is a great place to travel in a group as the guides know so much about what to see & do extra to what is in the brochures. Also excellent at recommending safe places to eat etc.

Our trip to china and in particular Yunnan Province was fascinating. We were with a great group of people and were well organised by our leader Jane. We enjoyed the rural aspect of the tour and the small towns were interesting. It was great to hear and see the cultural side of this area.

Certainly give anything a try, and make the most of any chance to mix with the locals, even if you don't speak the language. You have an experience and that is what life is all about.

Our name stems from the word 'Peregrinate’, meaning to migrate, walk or take a pilgrimage – very fitting for our beginnings as a trekking company. Since our inception, we've broadened our horizons and now offer small group journeys in over 80 countries across all seven continents, which can be enjoyed by anyone with an enquiring mind who enjoys getting off the beaten track (without forgoing some of the comforts of home).

We are a company built by travellers for travellers. Take a walk around our offices and you’ll see the empty desks of people out on trips, or hear people swapping stories about a place they have just visited. Land at your destination and discover your tour leader is local to the region.

Wherever you travel with us we’ll take you to the major highlights as well as along the route less taken. This gets you closer to the local people and the culture you came to discover. We promise to share our knowledge and expertise with you, and ensure you will come home with stories you will tell for years to come.
