Our English-speaking guide and skilled driver will pick you up at your Kunming hotel and transfer you to Dali Ancient Town and your hotel inside the quiet town.
The first leg of our Dali tour is the Three Pagodas where we can see how the pagodas arising without any foundation could magically still survive and recover themselves from the past earthquakes. Return to your Dali hotel and the rest time is left free for you to explore the surroundings.
Make an early transfer to Xizhou village with your Dali guide and driver. Fresh veg picks and caughts and other goods are hawked by the nearby farmers and fishers along the street which lined with the well-preserved Bai architectures. Mingle in the minority-dressed locals to bargain for some local specials. Shut out the market bustle in the local residences where the layout and decoration details can well display the Bai minority's architecture talent and art originality.
Continue our tour way to Zhoucheng Village that is known for its traditional skill craft--tie dye. Every local family masters this craftsmanship--the cotton is skillfully dyed and sewed in thousands of ways with the pure plant as the dyeing material.
Farewell to this Bai-minority Dali and drive to Naxi-minority-dominated Lijiang and enjoy your own free time in this old town.
Make a morning transfer from your hotel and start the town tour. Black Pool Park, on the northern edge of the old town, is advised to take in and snap shots of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain view. The Dongba Research Institute on the hillside features the culture artifacts and pictograph scripts of Naxi minority.
Then head to Baisha village to search the Naxi root in the rural Baisha village. Read the life stories of different religions in the Baisha mural paintings if you are interested. Visit the most-admired man in the Baisha--Dr. Ho in his herb medicine clinic and know more about the magic medical use of pure plant roots or leaves.
Next let's drive to and ascend the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain via the cable car to view the breathtaking glacier. You can also tread through cliff path to reach the peak of the mountain to take in more grand snow scene.
Descend the mountain and call it a day by driving back to Lijiang Old Town.
Meet the guide and driver at your hotel as previous day before the wild tour.
Drive to marvel at the First Bend of Yangtze River dotted with the lush forest and cloud-shrouded mounts nearby. Feel your draw hit your chest at the awe-inspiring Tiger Leaping Gorge following the ancient Stone Drum Village.
Flying back to Kunming city and transfer back to your hotel. Or you can conclude the tour in Lijiang.
