Under the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain

- A Secret Retreats journey -
4 Days / 3 Nights
from 690 USD /person



Originally from Yunnan, Tina is sharing with us here her favorite destination in Yunnan: Lijiang and the most interesting experience to discover the rich Naxi culture.

All our itineraries have generally been constructed on the basis of the rooms that have the most charm or best view, and not necessarily the first prices, nor the most expensive suites.
We can of course adjust according to your request.

Highlights of the Journey:

  • Naxi Minority Culture
  • Dongba pictographs and religion

Baisha (white sand), is named for the powdery white sand that decorates the surrounding countryside. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site that Lijiang Old Town belongs to. The Old Town of Lijiang has retained a historic townscape of high quality and authenticity. Its architecture is noteworthy for the blending of elements from several cultures that have come together over many centuries. Lijiang possesses an ancient water-supply system of great complexity and ingenuity that still functions effectively today. It is one of the first UNESCO site in China, and also one of the busiest. Baisha somehow has managed to avoid the crowds and tourist traps that plague its neighbour. The town offers an authentic cultural experience with its many temples, rich cultural heritage, stunning frescoes and zany homeopathic doctors. We propose here a 4 day and 3 night all inclusive experience to discover the Naxi minority culture in both towns of Lijiang and Baisha, at the foot of the majestic Dragon Jade Snow Mountain. A deep discovery of traditional Chinese Culture.
