11Days Yunnan-Sichuan Overland Tour from Lijiang to Chengdu
Tour Type:Private Tour
Tour Code:173
Highlights: A variation on an old favourite from the days when this area was apparently closed to foreigners, a deep foray into the little explored reaches of Kham Tibet¡¯s high plateau grasslands, mountains and valleys. A translation of the Tibetan for Kham, the 4 rivers refers to the Mekong, the Yangtze, the Yalong and the Salween rivers. Kham is both the most populated (strictly relative) and, arguably, culturally richest region of greater Tibet. The area stands out as having historically been a stamping ground for all five schools of Buddhism, a radical and refreshing change from the orthodoxies of central Tibet, and indeed provided the heartbeat of the 19th century non-sectarian Rimed movement. The trail heads into some truly remote areas, taking in several rarely visited monasteries and towns, and overall getting the full flavour of this remarkable region, before dropping down off the plateau into NW Yunnan and a final R&R period in Lijiang, the capital of the Naxi minority. Although we cover a huge area during this trip, the pace is actually quite gentle. Add to that the option of camping under those BIG skies, it makes for a flexible, easy-going and extremely rewarding road trip.
