Tour Itinerary

Day 01 Arrival - Kunming
Upon arrival in Kunming, you will be met at the airport and transferred to your hotel for check-in.
Day 02 Kunming - Stone Forest - Kunming (Breakfast + Lunch)
Drive to Lunan County which takes 2 hours and explore the Stone Forest Geological Park. In the afternoon, return to Kunming.

Stone Forest: Located in Lunan County which is about 120 kilometers from Kunming, the Stone Forest is made up of countless awesome natural rock formations - bunches of gray stone columns which look like stalagmites. Covering an area of 400 square kilometers, the whole area is like a fantastic maze with nice walking trail.
Day 03 Kunming - Lijiang (Breakfast + Lunch)
Take flight to Lijiang in the morning. Visit the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, Ganhaizi, Yufeng Temple, Baisha Fresco, Ancient Shuhe Village of Naxi people. In the afternoon, visit Lijiang Ancient Town.

Jade Dragon Snow Mountain: It's 4,000 meters above sea level, the highest peak Shanzidou, 5,569 meters high, together with the other 13 peaks which run 35 kilometers from the south to the north, look like a giant crystal jade dragon and thus get the name.
Yufeng Temple: Built in the last year of the Kangxi Period of the Qing dynasty, it is one of the five important Lamaist temples in Lijiang.
Baisha Fresco: It was made from 1385 to 1619, employing the eclectic artist energies of Chines Daoist , Tibetan and Naxi Buddhists and local dongba shamans.
Lijiang Old Town: Built in the late Song dynasty (960-1279 A.D.) and the early Yuan dynasty (1206-1368 A.D.), Lijiang is a Historical and Cultural Heritage in China and it has been included in the World Cultural Heritage. Lijiang is also the center of the Naxi people, a relatively small minority group with a rich culture.
Day 04 Lijiang (Breakfast + Lunch)
Tour to the Tiger Leaping Gorge and The First bend of the Yangtze River.

The First Bend of the Yangtze River: Yangtze River flows from the glaciers on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau eastward across southwest, central and eastern China before emptying into sea at Shanghai. About 44 miles outside of Lijiang, unusual geological phenomenon forces the Yangtze to make a sudden V-shaped bend and flow to the northeast. The area at the river's bend features wide flow of water, green river water and green willows on both sides of the river. It is the best place to enjoy the spectacular scenery.
Tiger-Leaping Gorge: The gorge is located on the way from Lijiang to Shangri-La, lying between Haba Snow Mountain and Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. It is one of the deepest canyons of the world, famous for its majesty and grotesquery. At the narrowest spot the river is only 30 meters wide. The mouth of the gorge is 1,800 meters above sea level. The river is flanked by Yulong and Haba snow mountains, with a height difference of 3,900 meters. It is an ideal place for those who love hiking. There are three routes for hiking. One can start from Hutiaoxia Town along the river to Daju in Lijiang County, or go upstream from Daju. The third route sets out from Hutiaoxia Town to Hetaoyuan and is 28 km in length.
