Thanks to our fantastic guide, Jane, we had a real insight into the culture nand history of Yunnan. She filled our days (completely!) with a taste of real nlife.nTiger Leaping Gorge was not so intimidating as we had thought, no particular nnarrow paths or sheer drops to worry about. Part of the hike was blocked, but nJane took us on an exhilarating walk from our guest house down to the river nbelow.nThe cities of Dali and Jianshui were very interestingnand we all enjoyed these very much, and of course the sureal scenery of the nrice terraces, and meeting freindly locals in their villages. Food was nexcellent, lots of fresh unusual vegetables, and such a variety...we ate very nwell.nAll in all a fabulous trip, full of variey and interest all the way through, nand definately recommended.
