We took a chance on visiting the ancient tea horse caravan town of Shaxi on our way from Lijiang to Dali. It was a little off the beaten path but we had heard great things about the old town and after the crazy tourist crowds in Lijiang, we wanted to try something more authentic. We were not disappointed! ... Details

Day 9

Day 5
We had to say “bye bye” to Dali and set forward to our next destination Lijiang. Considering of our future arrangement, we didn’t climb the Mt.Cang. It’s a pity but also an excuse for us to come here again. We got on the bus from Dali to Lijiang on 10:00. It cost 50 ... Details

You will never know a place unless you come there and explore ... Details

Day 7
Time to go back to Lijiang! We contacted the car driver yesterday and he promised to pick us up at the Mosuo Museum near our hostel. We were a bit worried that he would drive his small car to bring us back to Lijiang. Luckily, he drove a van that could accommodate 20 passengers this time.

Day 4
In the early morning, we strolled in the town to seek a bike rental shop. We visited 3 bike rental shops but they charged CNY 30 per bike. We thought it was too expensive and then headed to the bike rental shop near the North Gate. A bike cost CNY 15 per day. Good! What’s more, the bikes ... Details

At the end of 2006, he decided to travel abroad alone. His original was to travel outside for three months. ... Details

The journey from Jinghong to Shangri-la was hard, but unexpected beautiful. Starting in Jinghong at an altitude of 500 m and arriving in Shangri-la at more than 3000 m, made it one of the most exhausting cycling tours I ever made. But it was worth it!
First I cycled throughout the tea-fields of the ... Details
