Designing the most spectacularly beautiful drive in Western China

The magical roads of Yunnan and Sichuan offer some of the best driving adventures in Asia - particularly in late Autumn and early Winter when the days are universally sunny and the mountain foliage is bursting with a kaleidoscope of rusty oranges, deep reds and bright yellows.

In November 2016, based on our own extensive drives across western China, we designed a spectacular 10 day route (for a family of four) through the mountains and valleys of Kham that showcased the region's awe-inspiring landscapes and incorporated a number of the esoteric Tibetan Buddhist festivals that typically take place during this time. Here are some images, kindly shared, from that trip.
