A visit to Kunming without travelling to the Stone Forest is a great pity.

You will watch limestone in different shapes, like piercing towers, animals, and other vivid figures. Thereafter, we will serve you a good lunch.

In the afternoon, have a leisure wander at the Green Lake Park to enjoy the cozy atmosphere of this beautiful park. Later, our guide will transfer you to the railway station for a 3.5-hour bullet train ride to Lijiang. Upon arrival, our guide in Lijiang will wait for you at the train station and send you to the chosen hotel for a good rest.

Tiger Leaping Gorge
After a 2-hour drive, today's Hong Kong to Lijiang tour will start with the Tiger Leaping Gorge, which is a favored hiking destination. We will have an exciting hiking along the gorge for about 2.5 hours to appreciate breathtaking landscape, like vertical cliffs, torrential stream, dancing rivers and roaring waves.

After lunch, visit the Stone Drum Town, aka Shigu Town in Chinese, where we can visit the old stone drum with military stories carved on each side. Moreover, we can have a good view of the First Bend of the Yangtze River and the surrounding countryside scenery at the sightseeing platform in this historic village. The first Bend of the Yangtze River is a 90 degree turning to the northeast; therefore the V shape valley appears. After the visit, we will drive back to Lijiang.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast, Lunch
Day 4 Lijiang
Today, we will take cable car to Spruce Plateau, where we can overlook the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. Then, continue this Yunnan tour from Hong Kong to the Baisha Village, where we will appreciate the wonderful Baisha Murals. Later, we will provide a special experience for you: following the local Naxi elders to make a T-shirt with Naxi characters. The learning process will take about an hour. Amazingly, you can keep the T-shirt as a souvenir.
