Comment about this
This cycle tour is the " Discover the Yunnan historical cities of
Lijiang and Dali" . The spectacular landscapes that surround these
cities are in a class of their own. The old towns found inside the cities,
like the Ancient Dayan Town in Lijiang and the Dali Old City, will take
you back in time.
The old houses, ancient buildings, and cobbled streets create intrigue
as you realize how people once lived in those olden days. We'll even cycle
through small, mountain tribe communities, where the people are celebrated
for their colorful attire. It is amazing to see that the people who live
in Yunnan now live exactly the way they lived thousands and thousands
of years ago°≠ a simple life, undisrupted by the troubles of the outside,
This bike tour traverses over a wide range of different surfaces from
paved roads to off-road trails. The Yunnan Discovery tour seldom has a
dull moment as it goes through a good diversity of scenic environments
from snow capped mountains to green mysterious forests.
There are some tough climbs in high altitudes with fast descents. Riders
should have a moderate level of cycling experience for this tour. Riders
should also be in at least moderate physical condition because of the
altitudes involved with the tour. The tour is supported by a mini-van
100% of the journey to provide elected transfers if a cyclist desires
There is a real mixture and variety of riding on this tour. Some days
are short but have hill climbs, and others are longer, flat and fast.
They are all filled with jaw-dropping scenery and enough culture to fill
even the most culturally starved traveler.
Suitable Season: March, April, May, June, Mid of September, Oct, Nov.
