Yunnan on a Plate – Wild Mushrooms
YUNNAN
ALL ITINERARIES ENQUIRE


Description:

Yunnan on a plate – Wild mushrooms has been specially crafted for foodies and mushroom-lovers.  ...Read More

From July to September each year when the rains descend on southwest China’s rugged mountains, hundreds of varieties of mushrooms erupt from the forest floors of northwest Yunnan. This journey only takes place at the height of this wild mushroom season and takes you from the heady buzz of mushroom markets to the edges of ancient cloud-forests and the Tibetan plateau, mostly on beautiful back roads.

This leisurely itinerary will also take you through smaller villages where time slows down. Explore morning markets, wander through Shaxi’s cobbled streets, watch endangered monkeys in Tacheng and visit a lively Tibetan monastery in Shangri-La.

This 9-day itinerary is centred around good food. You will eat extremely well, and touch, feel and smell these delicate wild mushrooms first-hand. Mushrooms will never be ever the same to you again after this experience!

With comfortable accommodation throughout, travelling in our spacious cars and supported by On the Road Experiences’ friendly and professional team, you will enjoy a comfortable and stress-free holiday on this self-driving journey.
