Luxury and adventure in the gorge of the Upper Yangtse

Between Lijiang and the sacred mountain of Kawakarpo, Benzilan was famous for its horse caravan leaders, and is now home to our luxurious caravanserai, right on the rushing Yangtse River with mountains on either side. This is the heart of northern Yunnan’s hospitable Tibetan culture, and the ideal base for exploring the protected Three Parallel Rivers World Heritage site, one of the world’s richest ecosystems.
