AACI Kosher Sichuan, Yunan and Tibet
01 June 2020 - 18 June 2020
Locations: Chengdu, Dali, Kunming, Sichuan, Tibet, Yuan
Sichuan-It’s fitting that an ancient form of opera and magic called biànliǎn (face-changing) originated here, for Sichuan is a land of a myriad of layers. Capital Chengdu sems modern on the surface but just beyond its ring roads you’ll find a more traditional landscape of mist-shrouded, sacred mountains, and a countryside scattered with ancient villages and cliffs of carved Buddhas.
Yunan-More than half of the country’s minority groups have their origins here, providing a glimpse into China’s diverse cultural landscape. Then there’s the eye-catching contrasts of the land itself: Erhai Lake, Tiger Leaping Gorge and snow-capped mountains as you edge towards Tibet.
Tibet- Tibet offers mystical monasteries, gorgeous palaces, stunning views of the world’s highest mountains and one of the most likeable cultures you will ever encounter.
