3 - 7DAYS
A large number old villages in central Yunnan survived the culture revolution(1966-1976) because of their remote location and protection by the local villagers. Some of these valuable places have only been rediscovered in recent years, and are unknown to tourists. They give you the feeling of traveling back in time to ancient China: old houses with fading paintings on the wall, gorgeous woodcarvings and stone sculptures, and elegant calligraphy. All of this while the local people just carry on with their daily life as they have been doing for centuries.
Best season: All year
