This trek around Shangri La in 3 days can be added to any of our tours in Yunnan, for travelers wishing to make a deeper and more active discovery of the Tibetan region of Shangri La, in the heart of a beautiful nature and to discover isolated Tibetan villages (Niru in particular). This will only take you 2 extra days by removing the full day scheduled at Shangri La in our other Yunnan tours. Note however that this trek can only be done with the accompaniment of one of our English-speaking Tibetan guides.
