Tour Gansu, Sichuan, Yunnan
Villages are surrounded by Nomad tents and yaks
Travelling at 2000-3800 meter (6000-11,400 feet) in the mountains of Gansu, Sichuan and Yunnan it is striking how Tibetan this part of China still is. Also other minorities live there, Naxi and Bai. And everywhere are tents of Nomands who wander the highlands with their herds of yaks. Besides Buddhist temples, convents and pagodes there are also mosques, which look very Chinese. 37 photos.

Temples and pagodas in a beautiful mountain landscape
In the South Chinese province of Yunnan tourism is booming. This is notable in cities like Kunming, Lijian and Dali. Hiking in the wild Tiger Leaping Gorge with its 3000 meters high walls is increasingly popular. But in villages the numerous minorities in this border province still live their traditional lives. A wedding of Chinese friends is an opportunity to get a more intimate impression of life in Yunnan. 29 photos.
