Yunnan Province

Yunnan (云南) , meaning 'the south of colorful clouds' in Chinese, is absolutely one of the best places for experienced cyclists as your first bike ride in China. Strategically located in the southeastern end of Himalaya Mountains, Yunnan has so much to offer. Sunny & mild weather, well paved roads, stunning sceneries and diverse ethnic cultures can all be good reasons to come here. With Tibetan, Naxi, Yi, Bai and other nationalities, Yunnan is a multi-ethnic province, which has most varieties of minority groups in China (25 minorities in total). Right here the traditional lifestyles and culture are still well preserved in their daily lives. Therefore, our bike trip is not simply cycling all the way, you will have loads of chances to see and experience the lifestyles of locals. We are very sure that this will be an eye-opening and self-developing journey for each participant of the trip. (Yunnan Cycle Blog)
