Breathtaking landscapes, exotic flora and fauna and world class rock climbin await you in Yunnan, China. Follow me on this rock climbing and culture week and discover this top rock climbing destination!

Located in the far southwest of China and with an incredible variety of amazing terrains, ethnic cultures and wildlife, Yunnan is one of the most diverse provinces in the country. During this fun and exciting adventure, you will be thrilled by the Chinese culture and landscapes.

My proposal is to climb the Li Ming sandstone rock walls, which attract adventurous rock climbers from all around the world. Thanks to its extremely varied climbing conditions, both beginners and advanced climbers are welcome. Additionally, we’ll trek in the famous Tiger Leaping Gorge which is one of the deepest in the world, and consequently, also a renowned hiking trail. Finally, we’ll also go for some sport climbing in the beautiful limestone area of Shigu. 

In order to join this program, all participants should be comfortable hiking with a backpack. Also, please remember that climbing experience is recommended but not required.  I will organize this trip based on your capabilities and interests.

About the guide

guide profile img

I started guiding in 2012 while living in Yangshuo and quickly developed a passion for sharing climbing, cycling, and exploration with people from around the world. Infatuated with Chinese culture and the many amazing places to climb, I coauthored a guidebook for travel and climbing in the country: Climb China in 2014. Following the release, I spent three seasons working as a cycle guide in Taiwan, returning to China during the off season to explore unclimbed cliffs in Yunnan, Sichuan, and Xinjiang. I currently base in LiMing, Yunnan and work with several other AMGA instructors to teach traditional rock climbing in China's sandstone paradise, plus lead multi-activity trips around the country.
