Reviews for Yunnan trekking holiday, Mt Meili to Cizhong


review 22 Jul 2018

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

There were many memorable moments which included extraordinary vistas such as the glacier melting into streams and then the lake, challenging hikes in high altitudes, interesting meetings with local minority people, learning about different religions, customs and beliefs of the people.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Some of the guides are dedicated and informative and others are less. There are at times unexpected changes with guides based on the area and population youíre visiting. The changes are at times interesting because it gives you the opportunity to hear differing perspectives on politics, religious beliefs and more. The treks are at times more challenging depending on the weather but all are doable if youíre in shape. We enjoyed the hike and didnít rush them because we like looking at the views and plants and flowers on the way so the projected times which were given to us were not accurate. Also since we were there in the raining seasons the paths at times were washed out and or very slippery which made it more challenging. We were advised to bring a sleeping bag and walking sticks which we didnít use but some people may find it helpful if they normally use walking sticks. We found the sleeping facilities were fine as long as youíre open to many different kinds of experiences.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Definitely it helped the local economy and we were definitely supporting conservation.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Overall we had an excellent time with some nice challenges and we learned a lot. It is just important to be open to change and the unexpected
