Historic Walking Areas · Bodies of Water · Historic Sites
One of the most diverse provinces in China, Yunnan offers a wide range of attractions, ranging from UNESCO-protected stone forest formations to ancient Tibetan monasteries. Sightseeing in Yunnan includes visits to picturesque old town zones--some of the best-preserved in China--as well as seeing some of the country's most elaborate pagodas. Yunnan’s intact nature--which sits relatively close to urban areas--as well as year-round, spring-like climate provides excellent hiking opportunities. You can hike in beautiful nature along well-maintained trails and see spectacular rice terraces, swim in one of the deepest and cleanest lakes in China, or visit a diverse range of ethnic villages. Buy some delicious local tea and try some exquisite rice noodles. Discover how to plan a China trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.
