Yunnan.

Le Yunnan qui signifie «au Sud des Nuages» est une province chinoise située au sud-ouest du pays.

Cette région a de tout temps été un carrefour commercial car elle est frontalière du Tibet et de la Birmanie. Des caravanes de chevaux, mulets, yaks et porteurs humains transportaient sur des pistes très dangereuses serpentant à flanc de montagne sur 2 400 à 2 600 km des briques ou des galettes de thé, pour les troquer au Tibet contre des chevaux, des fourrures, des vêtements de laine, du musc et des matières médicinales.

Le Yunnan offre une gamme très variée de magnifiques paysages s’étendant des hauts et froids plateaux tibétains au nord aux rizières en terrasse du sud au climat tropical.
Une très grande diversité d’ethnies (26) vivent au Yunnan ce qui, ajouté à la beauté des paysages, fait d’un voyage dans cette province chinoise une expérience très enrichissante.
Par ailleurs la pollution y est beaucoup moins présente que dans les plaines de l’Est...

Bon Voyage !

This region has always been a commercial crossroads because it is border of Tibet and Burma.

Yunnan offers a wide rage of magnificent landscapes from the high and cold Tibetan Plateau in the North to the southern rice fields terraces enjoying a tropical climate.

A large diversity of ethnic groups (26) live in Yunnan. Added to the beauty of the landscapes this diversity makes of a journey in this Chinese province a very enriching experience.
