8-Day Tiger Leaping Gorge & Hidden Paradise Yubeng Village

While most people have heard of Yunnan's famed Tiger Leaping Gorge, Yubeng Village is more of a hidden gem. Situated at the foot of the sacred Meili Snow Mountain Range, for hundreds of years it lay undiscovered simply due to how inaccessible it was from the outside world.

It remains secluded to this day, a whole day trek from the closest paved road, and therein lays its appeal – one of isolated, unspoiled majesty. This trip takes in stunning hikes, to and from Tiger Leaping Gorge, Yubeng Village and Lijiang, as well as discovering the rich culture and colors of this remarkable part of Yunnan.

4-Day Spectacular Mount Tianzhu & Haven Lake Villa


Tianzhu Mountain Scenic Area is one of the three famous mountains in Anhui, and offers an exquisite natural landscape which is both highly unique and majestic. Tianzhu also provides us with a sanctuary from the crowds during the National Day holiday. 

Enjoy an amazing villa hotel package by the hidden alpine Alchemy Lake at an altitude of 1,100 meters. It is said that Zuo Ci, a famous Taoist scholar in the late Eastern Han Dynasty, once collected medicines for his alchemy here, and his furnace is still there to this day. Surrounded by fog in the morning, or after the rain when the sky is clear, the lake is truly reminiscent of a fairyland.

Located in the northern mountain ranges of Hunan, the remote Zhangjiajie National Forest was known only to the Tujia, Miao and Bai minority groups for centuries. Today, with its towering karst spires, rich brown earth and lush forests, Zhangjiajie has become a striking and iconic Chinese landscape.

Made a UNESCO Heritage Site in 1992, and immortalized by the film Avatar, the park is a dramatic landscape of deep, forested canyons and enormous, isolated limestone peaks, each with their own miniature ecosystems akin to bonsai forests.

This tour also takes in Zhangjiajie Grand Canyon Glass Bridge, the world's longest and highest glass-bottomed bridge – walk it if you dare! – and Hunan provincial capital Changsha, where you can do a little Chairman Mao tourism.
