Day01 Beijing - Lijiang
Today you will take a flight from Beijing to Lijiang by yourself. The air tickets are on our arrangement. Our local guide will warmly greet you at the airport and transfer you to the hotel. After a short rest, you will have a visit of the Lijiang Ancient Town. The Square Street is the heart of the town, with four main streets leading to different directions and more branches from them, connecting every corner of the town with the square. While walking through the old town, you could have a stroll on the stone-paved Square Street, appreciating the beautiful natural sceneries and the distinctive local residences.

Day02 Lijiang
A local vegetable market
Today, you will explore the scenic Lijiang. Firstly visit the Baishui River (White Water River) which is formed by runoff from the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. The water is extremely clean and the white riverbed can be seen clearly. After that, travel to the Dry Sea, which is located at the east foot of the elegant Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. As is implied by its name, the Dry Sea was once a lake but later dried up. Nowadays, it is a natural grazing ground covered by carpet-like meadow. Then, you will take the cable car to Spruce Plateau, which is a verdant lawn hiding behind a primeval spruce forest. It is a beautiful and tranquil fairyland under heaven. Here, you may also overlook the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, which are the closest snow mountains to the equator. Its highlights are the thirteen snowy peaks.

Getting down from the Spruce Plateau, you will head for Baisha Village, which is the former political, economic and cultural center of Lijiang. There are some magnificent ancient buildings in the village. Here, visiting a local Naxi family will appease your curiosity about the customs and living habits of Chinese minority groups. After that, enjoy Baisha Murals, a well-known local art form and the ones in Dabaoji Palace and the Colored Glaze Temple are among the best.

Day03 Lijiang - Kunming
Naxi minority women wearing their traditional costume
Our guide will see you off at the airport for your morning flight to Kunming, also called the 'Spring City' because of its nice weather all year round. It is also a clustering place of Chinese ethnic minorities with diversified culture. Upon arrival, our local guide will pick you up at Kunming Airport and transfer you to the hotel. After a rest, you will be transferred to visit the Stone Forest, a natural wonder known as the 'World Karst Landscape Museum' as well as a hot destination for visitors both from home and abroad. The scenic area mainly consists of Major Stone Forest, Minor Stone Forest, Naigu Stone Forest and Long Lake which display various stone formations in shapes of animals, plants and even human figures. You will marvel at the splendor of these natural formations when touring it. 

Day04 Departure from Kunming
Our guide will see you off at Kunming Airport. Your private China tour ends here. Wish you a pleasant trip! 

 Note: We are also glad to make arrangements for you in Beijing if you need. Your travel consultants will quote you the price for this part upon your requirements.
