3 Days Yunnan Cycling Tour along the Yunnan-Vietnam Railway
Tour Type:Budget Tour
Tour Code:777
Highlights: The Yunnan-Vietnam Railway (滇越铁路) celebrated it’s centennial last year. With a new high-speed rail line connecting Kunming with Vietnam already under construction, this historic narrow gauge railway’s days may be numbered. Today, the route can no longer be experienced from aboard the train (passenger service was suspended in 2003 due to the risk of landslides). But it’s still possible to see the occasional freight train rolling along these historic tracks. Most of its 466 kilometers within Yunnan snake through river valleys and canyons away from contemporary transportation corridors. It’s only possible to scout out the tracks in certain places where parallel roads exist. One of the most rewarding such sections begins at the Vietnamese border in Hekou (河口), following the Nanxi River (南溪河) north for 112 km into Pingbian (屏边) county, ending at Renziqiao (人字桥), a remarkable bridge shaped like the Chinese character for person: 人.
