Why you need guide with join the private tour ?

At first for foreign,  you travel to any other country, you don't know the local language, you don't know the local culture, you don't know the local condition and you don't want to waste your time, you  have  better Quality of life  and job compare to China, have guide , you get guide to Organize trip for you, is shared life with local poor people and keep every one happy!

Second have guide fore sure you will feel safe and of course is security for all your trip, specially China was change too fast, the mountain path for some reason put up wall, the city street is develop by some thing changed, of course in the village must be changed by plant project, so local guide will know the area more then travelers, you don't get loosed.

Tourmaline & infrared Sauna Benefits:

The sauna experience - clear your mind and body,  melt away tensions and extra pounds.

Tourmaline heaters in sauna room emit 5.615VM healthy far infared ray and healthy ion which can be obsorbed effectively by human body, meanwhile, through sweating which can help people burn up calories, improve toxin, smoothen skin color, relieve pain, increase immunity, prevent disease, and anti-aging, sauna room is necessary for family health.

A sauna is a peaceful refuge from the stress of daily living - a soothing, dry heat environment that relaxes and refreshes, to leave you feeling healthy. When you take a sauna, the heat pumps up blood circulation near the skin and stimulates sweating. It helps the body rid itself of toxins and mineral wastes, improve immune system, relax muscles, increase flexibility, and relieve pain. In a sauna, you'll burn hundreds of calories without hours on the exercise bike or treadmill. Saunas deep cleanse the skin.

Infrared Sauna: Using less energy, operating at low temperature and warming up in minutes, Infrared Sauna is fairly new but rapidly gaining popularity.

What is infrared? Infrared is the band of light we perceive as heat. We cannot see this band of light with the naked eye, but we can feel this type of light in the form of heat. Our sun produces most of its energy output in the infrared segment of the spectrum. Infrared rays heat your body without having to heat the air in-between, through a process called conversion.

The infrared is divided into 3 segments by wavelengths, measured in microns: 1.5~5.6 microns - middle infrared

Among these segments, only far infrared penetrates organic substances such as the human body two to three inches so that the warming effect is very uniform. SaunaCare Sauna's far infrared heaters radiate this far infrared to safely and effectively warm your body.

How does it benefit us? Because infrared rays penetrate the body over 1-1/2 inches throughout conversion, there is a deep heating effect in the muscle tissues and internal organs without giving too much burden to our heart.

 You will get Dry Saunas to take off your tired from long hike and Relaxation your body !!

     If you plan to Visit the Tiger Leaping Gorge,, not matter any kind of weather or story talking ! you just call us to pick up you from Lijiang or Zhongdian, we have private car that take you down to the Gorge. so when you are in Lijiang, you just need to give us call: 0887-820 2223 and give us your hotel contact phone number, we can arrange a pick-up service to take you directly to Sean's Spring Guest house.

   Gorge higher trail start : Trekking the Tiger Leaping Gorge on the high trail, it's best that you take the car along the road from Lijiang or Zhongdian all the way to Walnut Garden Sean's Guesthouse, have a day trip around the Sean's Guesthouse Middle Gorge and then hiking back towards Qiaotou. From Sean's Guesthouse, hike on the high trail to Qiaotou is much easier to follow and you don't have to worry about the steep uphill ascent. Within 3-4 hours, you will see the beautiful parts of the Gorge, the highest mountain peak, narrowest gorge, all the natural waterfalls etc. You do not have to carry your big bagpack with no other interferences. You will easily reach Qiaotou in 6-7 hours. However, from Qiaotou, the hike up is much harder. The 24 Bends is one of the hardest part of the high trail - note, however, that "24 Bends" is a name but in reality, it is more than THREE times the number of bends! So please take your time in walking this trek and take many mini-breaks in between.

Trekking  pass the high waterfall trail, you may need a local guide to show you all the way down to Sean's place or ether other way up to the bamboo forest. the best way would be just contact Sean to organize your Tiger Leaping Gorge trip. Sean is an expert in the area and is a valuable guide throughout your trip.

Its all the way about 195 kilometers from Qiaotou through the Tiger Leaping Gorge; white water terrace up to Zhong Dian, have recently been tarred. The road follows the Yangtze below it so there are more views of the river, and a stronger sense of being in a gorge than on the upper trail. It is also a shorter, less strenuous hike or bike ride. (23.2 kms to Walnut Garden) Allow 5-6 hours from Sean's Walnut Garden to Qiaotou , if walking. two hours if cycling.
