Overview

Lijiang Guides is the region's leading eco-tourism and cultural-tourism operation, specialising in taking visitors to non-touristy places. We can help you explore Yunnan's diversity, its 26 different minorities, and the wonders of nature - mountains, lakes, glaciers, forests and blue skies. With experience in the area since 1996, we will take you away from the tourists to the REAL China, where you can experience the place and its people. With knowledgeable guides, who speak English and local languages, you can visit villages, markets, monasteries, mountains, farms, and grasslands. We visit families, enjoy the company of locals and share meals with Naxi, Yi and Tibetan families. Plus, if you like dogs, we have Lassie the guide dog to accompany you. Lijiang Guides offers native-English speaking guides as well as local Tibetan, Lisu, Yi and Naxi guides who speak English. Welcome to south-west China.

I want to see Tiger Leaping Gorge. I am traveling alone and would prefer to join a small group. How should I proceed to book a trip between March 22-26th?
