Tour details

This trip is an authentic cultural experience in Dali. We will start our day with a visit to a tea farm that lies in a beautiful spot overlooking Dali district and Lake Erhai. If you are interested, a possible extra is to take a part in the Yunnan famous tea making course. From there we will start to climb up north on the ancient southern silk road, known as " the way of tea and horses". This is an ancient trade route from India and Southern Asia to Tibet and Inland China. Our first stop will be Xizhou village, we will start at the vibrant local market where the local minority groups who live in the surrounding mountains and the lake shores come to sell their wares. We will stroll around and see the traditional homes of the locals and enjoy the special atmosphere.

From there we will drive to Zhoucheng village. we will start by visiting the local market of the village and from there we will walk a few minutes to visit a factory that produces textiles and clothing in the famous Tai Dai method, that is a centuries old traditional method of the local women, who tie fabrics and dip them in colors derived from plants that grow in the area. The result is fabrics and clothes full of many colors and shapes. Another possible extra: drive from Zhoucheng to Shaxi village and end of trip in Shaxi. The options abound on this cultural tour in and around Dali!
