Yunnan lies at the southwestern border of China and is a gateway to Southeast Asia. It is one of the most important cradles of human civilization, as the people who lived there 1.7 million years ago are the earliest humans discovered in Asia. The complex terrain, with its wide range of altitudes and climates, provides appropriate conditions for growing a variety of plants, making Yunnan a wonderland with its diverse natural scenery. Popular sites are Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, Stone Forest, Yuanyang Rice Terraces, Erhai Lake, Dian Lake, Pudacuo National Park, Xishuangbanna Rainforest, and many more. The old towns and Tibetan monasteries are also rich historical and cultural relics.
The climate in Yunnan is pleasant all year round. Kunming, the capital city, is also called the ‘Spring City’ for its mild temperatures. The ancient city of culture and history – Dali, the important channel of the Tea Horse Ancient Route – Lijiang, and the Lost Horizon – Shangri-La, are places you do not want to miss.
