5 Days Yunnan Tour: Kunming, Lijiang

Tour Code: KMT_09
Deatinations: Kunming, Lijiang

1. Tour Itinerary

Day 01 Arrival in Kunming
Upon your arrival, our guide will pick you up at the airport and transfer to your hotel.
Day 02 Kunming - Stone Forest - Kunming (Breakfast + Lunch)
After breakfast, drive 90 KM to Lunan county to visit the Stone Forest. Back to Kunming in the afternoon.

Stone Forest: A typical case of Karst landform which was formed around 270 million years ago when the area was underwater. The movements of the earth's plates caused the limestone formations to rise then rain gradually wore down the limestone to make the peaks. This bizarre natural wonder creates countless labyrinthine vistas. Stone Forest has been listed as a World Natural Heritage status by UNESCO.

Day 03 Kunming - Lijiang (Breakfast + Lunch)
Take morning flight to Lijiang. Visit the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, the Baisha Murals, the Ancient Shuhe Village of Naxi people. In the afternoon, visit Lijiang Ancient Town.

Jade Dragon Snow Mountain: The much famed mountain is situated some 15 km. north of Lijiang County, with thirteen peaks resembling jade pillars holding the sky, it stands majestically on the east side of the Jinshajiang River. The main peak, Mount Fan (Shanzifeng), is 5,596 m. above sea level, and is annually snowcapped.
Baisha Murals: Lijiang's murals are works of the Ming Dynasty, chiefly created from the Hongwu to the Wanli eras. They were originally distributed among the Juexiansi Temple and twelve others, nine of which fell to ruins. The remaining four temples have altogether 55 murals, with a total area of 139.22 sq. m.
Naxi people: Naxi literature is rich in form and content. Besides works by Naxi scholars and writers, there is a repository of oral folk literature.
Lijiang Ancient Town: The county town of Lijiang is also called Dayanzhen, famous for its scientific architectural layout. Crisscrossed by crystal-clear rivers and meandering cobbled streets, it has a high research value and is a treasure in the field of urban construction in China.

Day 04 Lijiang (Breakfast + Lunch)
Tour to the Tiger Leaping Gorge and the First bend of the Yangtze River.

Tiger Leaping Gorge: One of the longest, deepest and narrowest gorges in the world.
First bend of the Yangtze River: The upper reaches of the Yangtze River is named the Jinsha River, which originates from the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. The Jinsha River flowed southward along the Hengduan Mountain ranges and was forced to the turn to north because of the Alpine movements which caused changes in the earth's physiognomy. When the river reaches Shigu Township, it makes an abrupt turn and flows further northward, forming the rare V-shape bend.

Western Hills: The mountains are located 15 kilometers west of Kunming; they stretch along the west bank of Dianchi Lake, creating a lovely view of water, mountain, and sky. Cut out of the side of a precipitous cliff, the Dragon Gate is made up of a group of pavilions, grottoes and sculptures that were hacked from the cliff between 1781 and 1835.
Golden Temple: As one of the largest bronze works in China (at 250 tons), the Golden Temple was first built in 1602 and recast 69 years later. It is located 7 miles to the northeast of Kunming. The Golden Temple Park takes up over 133 hectares on the Mingfeng Mountains which is commonly known as Parrot Hill, and it is lofty and sheer, with tree-sheltered ridges and peaks.
Bamboo Monastery: The temple is located on Mt. Yu'an which is located to the northwest of Kunming. It was first built in the Tang Dynasty (618-907) as the first temple dedicated to Zen Buddhism in Yunnan. The present structure mostly dates from the late Qing Dynasty (1644-1912). The highlight of the temple is the 500 of colored clay sculptures of Arhats.
