Southwest China Private Tours

South West China, the exotic area, home to many minority ethnic groups. Like other parts of West China, it is far less prosperous than the eastern and southern coastal regions. Much of the terrain is quite mountainous. Tibet and Northwestern Yunnan are located on the Tibetan Plateau and have many very high mountains; Including the world's highest (Mount Everest) which is located on the Tibet/Nepalese border. Guizhou and Guangxi have smaller mountains, including the karst limestone terrain, with fantastically gum drop shaped hills, terraced rice fields, and many caves.

But Southwest China is a unique region, metaphorically a treasure house of China worth your exolporation for quite a few days. Chengdu Private Tour have several pre-arranged Southwest China tours to Guizhou, Yunnan, Zhangjiajie, Guilin, Chongqing, Lhasa, which can be also tailor made to start from Xian, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Beijing and other cities in China.
