Yunnan-Tibet-Everest-Namtso 14 Days tour

South Silk Road--For thousands of years, only humans and horses treaded the mountains of Southwest China as they followed an ancient pathway through the Chinese hinterlands and the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. 
Along the unpaved and rugged pathway that was formed, commodities like tea, salt and sugar flowed into Tibet. Meanwhile, horses, cows, furs, musk and other local products made their way to the outside world. The road was called the tea-horse ancient road, and it stretched across more than 4,000 kilometers, mainly through Southwest China’s Sichuan and Yunnan provinces and the Tibetan Autonomous Region. 
The ancient commercial passage first appeared during the Tang Dynasty (618-907). It also experienced the Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties - or a period of more than 1,200 years. The road promoted exchanges in culture and religion, and saw ethnic migration that closely resembled what was experienced on the well-known Silk Road.
Meli Snow Mountain -- towers over the scene where the world famous Jinsha River, Lancang River and Nu River flow together. It’s a gigantic snowy series of mountains, ranging from north to south. The northern section is called Meri Snow-capped Mountain, the middle section Prince Snow-capped Mountain and the southern section Biluo Snow-capped Mountain. It connects to Mount Adonggeni of Tibet in the north. It consists of a total of 13 mountains higher than 6,000 meters in elevation and known as the “13 Princely Peaks”. 
Meli Snow Mountain is famous for its towering splendor and mystery. Its main peak, Kagebo, is 6,740 meters in elevation, the highest in Yunnan Province. It’s the guardian spirit of Jiajuba, a branch of the Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism. The peak resembles a magnificent pyramid. A floating sea of clouds covers the snow capped mountain with yet another mysterious veil. It is referred to as the “god of the snow mountain” and one of the “8 mysterious mountains in Tibet”.

-Yangtze River first bend The First Bend of the Yangtze lies in Shigu Town, Lijiang. Rushing down from the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, "the roof of the world", the Yangtze surges into Yunnan from its northwest, where it meets Lancang River and Nu River. Then, they go together through the high mountains and deep gorges of Hengduan Mountains. Rushing southwards from the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, the Yangtze is blocked by the Hailuo Cliff at Shigu, Yunnan, which makes it turn roughly to northeast, forming a rare great bay of "V" shape, which is called the First Bay of the Yangtze. According to the geologist, the Yngtze flowed southwards along Hengduan Mountains to Jianchuan and Yangbi Gorge in ancient time; later, land movement resulted in the change of the landform, which forced the river to divert, forming the turn of its flowing direction from south to east. Surrounded by water and mountains, the First Bay of the Yangtze has picturesque scenery, the river flowing slowly in the broad channel, a belt of willows growing along the bank, Yunling Mountains stretching around and enclosing it, tiers of terraced fields entwining the mountain slope, connecting with flat fields and farmhouses, which enjoys a reputation of "mini Jiangnan (south of the Yangtze)".

It covers an area of 33.3 hectares and has 700 Lamas. The monastery was built in 1679 at this site selected personally by the 5th Dalai Lama. It took three years to build the monastery. As an imitation of the Potala Palace in Tibet, the monastery is also called “Minor Potala Palace”. The fifth Dalai Lama named it “Gadan Songzanlin Monastery”, Gadan is the Tibetan name for Tusita, the fourth of the six-layered Buddhist heavens. In 1410, Tsong-kha-ha, founder of the Gelu Sect of Tibetan Buddhism, built the first monastery for Gelu Sect in Lhasa named Gadan. Songzanlin is also a Tibetan expression in which “song” means “three”, “zan” means the “playground for heavenly gods” and “lin” is “monastery”. Emperor Yongzheng of the Qing Dynasty granted the name “Guihuasi” to the monastery and his brother Prince Heshuoguo also granted to it a golden plaque inscribed with “Blessings for All”.

But in Upper Yanjing Village, Mangkang County, Chamdo Prefecture, eastern Tibet, it is not Sakyamuni who is worshipped, it is Jesus Christ. The Yanjing Catholic Church, built in 1865 by French missionaries, is the only one of its kind in Tibet and covers an area of 6,000 sq m. The church, a rare combination of Western and Tibetan architectural styles, has a typical Gothic vault and frescoes featuring the contents of Bible on the ceiling in the inside, but looks like a common Tibetan-style residence in the outside. In addition to the images of Jesus and Virgin Mary, the church is decorated by red lanterns and white hada, a symbol of purity and happiness in the Tibetan custom. The 1,000 residents of Upper Yangjing Village constitute the main body of the believers of the church. Catholics in the village still regard the Tibetan New Year's Day as the start for a new year; missionaries are dressed in Tibetan-style clothes; and the Catholic followers use the world's only Tibetan-edition of Bible. During Western festivals like Christmas, the church will invite Catholics from neighboring provinces and abbots of local Tibetan monasteries to join the get-together party. On the occasion of the Religious Dance Festival of Tibetan Buddhism, priests and Catholics will also be invited to appreciate the religious dance to mark the festival. Yanjing Village is divided by a ditch into two parts, with one called Upper Yanjing Village and the other, Lower Yanjing Village. Residents in Lower Yanjing Village are Naxi people who believe in Tibetan Buddhism, while residents in Upper Yanjing Village are indigenous Tibetans who believe in Catholicism
