When & Where
May 01-28, Yuhu village, LIJIANG, Yunnan, China, at the footstep of the Himalayan Mountains.
Starts on May 1 at 10:00 AM and finishes on May 28 at 4:00 PM
Yunnan is a place of diversity located in high altitude. Many minorities have still kept their traditional way of life. The landscape is amazing, nourished by very particular climate influence by the Himalayan Mountains in North-West and a tropical climate in the South.
May is one of the best time to visit Yunnan, with dry and shiny days 🙂
