    In this thread, we would love to share the motorbike trip in Shangri-La by a motorcyclist team by Ling Xiaoxiao and his team.

    This trip started in Kunming and ended in the beautiful area of Shangri-La with its breathtaking scenery.

    It provided an outstanding opportunity to obtain a thorough impression of the uniqueness of Shangri-La, in Yunnan province. They even explored small, almost hidden routes that are unknown to many.

    In general, Yunnan is known for lush tropical forests and enormous rice terraces, tribal villages, ancient old towns off the beaten trek, winding countryside roads, and soaring high mountains close to Tibet.

    This motorcycle trip showed them the highlights and diversity of Yunnan province. They started in Kunming and leads them from the south with its amazing old towns such as Lijiang to Shangri-la.

    They stayed in a small Tibetan village to experience the “real thing” after their riding in Shangri-la. From there they viewed the mountains covered by the holy snows. It was the highlight of the trip. All in all, they had a great experience riding a motorbike around Yunnan province.

    Traveling around for days and stopping only to climb mountains and to rest will be one of the most valuable moments for them.

    How many times have you promised yourself to leave everything and set off? Give yourself a motorcycle trip when possible.

    Amazing scenery from a part of the world many of us will likely never see in person. Thanks for sharing!

    Glad that you enjoyed it. This was a off-road riding tour. Some members would bring their own bikes and others would rent bikes local.
