Peninsula’s Yunnan Adventure Week is a jam-packed program that allows participants to take full advantage of the stunning pristine beauty of the legendary ‘Yosemite Valley’ of southwestern China. Situated in the foothills of the Himalayas and along the mighty Yangtze River, the farming town of Shigu, home to our program base for the week, is quickly becoming a world-famous destination for adventurers from around the globe.
Students will spend their time hiking, climbing, cycling and camping among the mountains and forests surrounding Shigu, learning the skills they need to thrive in the wilderness along the way. They will also be given opportunities to learn more about local arts, crafts and culture including the storied Naxi warriors who used the hills of Yunnan as hideouts and training grounds. Evenings are set aside for sessions for training in group dynamics, risk management and conflict resolution.
