Yunnan Tibet Tours FAQ

  • How to travel to Tibet from Yunnan?

    By flights – Yunnan is a province adjacent to Tibet. Travelers can take flights to Lhasa, the capital of Tibet, from 3 cities in Yunnan, which are Kunming, Diqing (Shangri-La) and Lijiang. It respectively takes 4 hours, 2 hours and 2 hours and costs 2800 RMB, 1700 RMB and 1700 RMB to fly from Kunming, Diqing and Lijiang to Lhasa.

    By train – There is no direct trains from Yunnan to Tibet. If you want to take a train ride to Lhasa, you need to fly from Kunming to Chengdu, Xian or Xining to board on a train. Xining is perhaps the best option, because it takes only 22 hours for a Xining to Lhasa train ride, and the most beautiful sceneries along the Qinghai-Tibet Railway start from Xining Station.

  • What to see in Yunnan?

    Although your final destination is Tibet, Yunnan is also worth to stay for a few days. Most our customers will visit Kunming, Yunnan and Diqing (Shangri-La) in Yunnan before traveling to Tibet. Like Tibet, Yunnan is also an area renowned for its minority cultures. There are 24 minority ethnic groups in Yunnan. Normally, 5 days is enough to learn about the highlights of these minority ethnic groups. Besides the minority highlights, the Kunming Stone Forest, Lijiang Ancient Town and Tiger Leaping Gorge are also worth a visit.

    The most popular itinerary from Yunnan to Tibet is Kunming – Lijiang – Diqing – Tibet. There are flights to Tibet from all the 3 cities in Yunnan, so it is ok to change the order of the itinerary.

  • How about taking a Tiger Leaping Gorge trek?

    It is a good idea. The Tiger Leaping Gorge is the most popular trekking site in Yunnan. Normally, it takes two days for this trek.

    Day 1 – Take a bus from Lijiang to the Tiger Leaping Gorge Town, the start point of the trek. After around 30 minutes’ trekking, you can choose to ride a horse or continue trekking. 40% of our customers choose to ride horse, because they need to climb a mountain. After lunch, you will arrive at the Twenty-Eight Turn to start the steepest trekking section. It is dangerous to ride a horse here, because the cliff path is narrow. Todays trek ends around 6:00 pm.

    Day 2 – Start trekking from your guesthouse to Middle Tiger Leaping Gorge, where you can admire the most spectacular gorge view. After arriving at the Middle Tiger Leaping Gorge, you can backtrack or continue the trekking to see more beautiful sceneries. No matter you decide backtrack or continue the trekking, at last, you will arrive at your guesthouse to take a bus to your next destination.
