Yunnan Province is without doubt one of the most alluring destinations in China. It's the most varied of all of China's provinces, with terrain ranging from tropical rainforest to snow-capped Tibetan peaks. It's also the sixth-largest province and home to a third of all China's ethnic minorities(nearly 50% of the province is non-Han) and half of all China's plant and animal species. There are 25 different ethnic minorities in Yunnan, making it the most culturally diverse province in China. This multiplicity of cultures has endowed the province with a rich heritage that it shares with all who come to visit. There is always something wonderful to see and do here.
The natural beauty of Yunnan Province defies description. It has mountain ranges and glaciers that are snow-capped all year round, deep virgin forests, lakes and hot springs, alpine landscapes, precipitous valleys, beautiful farmlands, mountain rivers and valley streams, floral splendor that blooms throughout the year, and vast skies with amazing clouds.
Yunnan is also well known for its mild climate year-round-its name means' South of the Clouds'. The provincial capital, Kunming is similarly referred to as the 'Spring City'. Thus if you could only go to one province, this might well be it.
Until recent times most of Yunnan was not easily reachable as it was cut off from communication with the outside world by precipitous mountains. Many believe that the Shangri-la referred to in James Milton's Lost Horizons, was here in Yunnan. It now may be the last virgin land where one can observe cultures whose layers go back for thousands of years into the past. Visit Yunnan and be prepared to be enchanted.
It was not possible for us to just dream about motorcycling into this magic land until now. The dream has come true, we have made it true. Come and ride, make your adventures of a life time. If you are dreaming about an adventure on a motorcycle by reading stories, listening to friends...it will never come true. But if you have really enough courage, this trip make it truely. Be pride on doing this trip, it is more than a trip because it is THE ADVENTURE OF A LIFE TIME
Riding in the most beautiful route in the Northwest of Vietnam, crossing China border to Yunnan, Lijiang, Tiger Leaping Gorge, Dali, wheeling on windy mountain passes, exploring the richest mountain hill-tribe cultures of Asia. Rolling onward to Tibet, Burma border then cross Laos border to Luang Prabang during 21 days. There are many large High-way in China but we prefer the back-road through countryside and mountainous.
