China Tour

China Tour

6 October – 5 November 2016
We started our #China Tour in #Beijing. In Beijing we visited the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace and the Temple of Heaven. After hiking the Great Wall of China we visited the Terra Cotta Army in Xi’an. The next highlight was the Labrang Tibetan Buddhist Monastery in Xiahe. We were surprised by the fresh snow on our way to Langmusi. The monastery and the gorge were both well worth to visit. The road to Songpan through the Grasslands was wonderful. Near Songpan we visited Huanglong National Park with all kinds of small lakes in amazing colors. Off course we did not forget to visit the Giant Pandas in the Chengdu Pandas Reserve. In Shangri-la it was time for action again. We first get the Giant Prayer Wheel in motion and made a nice tour on a bike in the afternoon. More action was required in the two days trekking through the Tiger Leaping Gorge. Near Lijiang we climbed the 5596m high Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. Unfortunately we had to stop at an altitude of 4567m. In Dali we faced bad weather. We hardly could see the three famous Pagodas. In Yangshou we rafted, biked and hiked to enjoy of the beautiful Karst Landscape. At last Shanghai showed us how modern China is as well. The Shanghai Tower is with 632m the second highest tower on earth. With the Maglev (the magnetic train) you travel with 430km/h to the airport.
