Tiger Leaping Gorge in Kunming

Kunming - 3 days

Kunming, an ancient cultural city and home to many of China’s ethnic minorities, is the capital of Yunnan Province. The name ‘Yunnan’ actually means ‘Beyond the Clouds’ in Chinese. This is perhaps quite apt, for Kunming sits at an elevation of some 1,900 m. Kunming is surrounded by gorgeous mountain scenery including the unique Stone Forest, which comprises a unique 270-million-year-old limestone karst formation of bundled rocky grey outcrops, resembling a petrified forest. With an annual mean average temperature of 14.5 degrees Celsius, it is also known as the ‘City of Perpetual Spring’. Kunming itself offers an interesting market, temples, pagodas and stores selling unique ethnic handicrafts. Tucked into side streets, many of Kunming’s traditional teahouses have survived. Here, older citizens play mah jong and drink gallons of jasmine tea. Kunming offers a decidedly different side to China.
