6 hours | 9:30 am start

Nestled in a beautiful valley overlooking the Yangtze River, a visit to Bodolo, ‘the most beautiful place’, dwarfed by sheer silver cliffs with the Yulong Snow Mountain looming in the background, makes for an unforgettable trip. Enjoy a farmhouse lunch and a walk around the village before taking a 1 hour horse ride (optional) to an alpine meadow.

The Two Yi Minority Villages Hike

7 hours | 9:00 am start

A fairly easy 2 hour hike on foot through a pristine alpine forest from the Yi minority village Bodolo to Yulitadi village. After a hearty farmhouse lunch, we begin the walk, with the trail winding through a mixed broad-leaf forest of poplar and Quercus trees, acorn-littered paths, moss-carpeted earth with lichen-draped trees and rolling green meadows with horses and cattle grazing serenely, and occasionally with sheer granite cliffs as backdrop.
