Top Places to Visit in Yunnan

Situated on the southern edge of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, Lijiang, a state-listed historical and cultural city, served as a vital section for both the Tea-horse Ancient Road and the Silk Road. The city is also a well-known international tourist destination with three world heritage: The Three Parallel Rivers, the Naxi Dongba Ancient Books and Documents, and Lijiang Ancient Town. In addition, there are over 100 tourist attractions including Shuhe Ancient Town, Black Dragon Pool Park, and the famous Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, which got its name from its thirteen meandering snow peaks that appeared to be a flying dragon.
  • DALI
    The tranquil pastoral scenery, the majestic Cangshan Mountain, and the beautiful Erhai Lake - the Pearl of the Plateau - constitute the main tourist area in Dali, where the world-renowned Three Pagodas, the Xizhou Ancient Town, the Butterfly Spring and are located.
    Shangri-La means "the sun and moon in one’s heart". It was long desired by everyone after being mentioned in the novel "Lost Horizon", whose popular attractions includes Tiger Leaping Gorge, Gadan Songzanlin Monastery, and Pudacuo National Park.
    Kunming is Yunnan's only megalopolis, which serves as the province's capital. The city is known as "Spring City" because it is located on a low-latitude plateau, surrounded by the largest freshwater lake - Dianchi Lake - in Yunnan Province and meandering mountains.
    Both of these two places belong to the Honghe Hani and Yi Autonomous Prefecture, an ethnic minority area in Yunnan, with a population of 2.41 million, mainly composed of Yi, Hani, Miao, Dai, and Zhuang. Unique dwellings and rice terraces are the most worthwhile sights here.
