This is a private tour, so please list any special interests you have at the time of booking to alert your guide, so that they can better prepare for your private tour.
Once you’re in your vehicle and on your way, it’s about 37 miles (60 km) to the first bend in the Yangtze River.

Enjoyable, breathtaking, and informative tour that maximizes the day. Guide and driver highly skilled. One of our trip highlights!

I recommend this tour for everyone, even older tourists who sometimes have trouble keeping up. We visited a typical roadside village, saw some of the important historical sites in the area, including a monument to the Long March, a very old engraved stone reciting Important events of the early Naxi people, a broad bend in the upper Yangtze where the forces of both Kubla Khan and the early Red Army chose to cross to further their campaigns, and the Gorge of the Leaping Tiger. Unfortunately the Long March monument area was closed and strong, cold winds precluded any time spent in the Gorge more than for a few pictures. We also made the mistake of including the Black Dragon Pool in our itinerary the day before so we did not go to the Pool again. The lunch for the day was served in a restaurant on the Shangrila side of the Yangtze in the Tibetan style and was delicious.
