China: Yosemite Sister Parks Hiking
Enchanting Landscapes, Traditional Culture & Pandas
China's vast, unique landscape holds two national parks that are sister parks to Yosemite - an international collaboration with parks and protected areas that face similar challenges. Join expert MT Sobek guides and park rangers on this 12-day adventure through these magical destinations. Ascend sacred Huangshan, traverse its summit, witness a spectacular sunrise (or two), and visit historic villages. Across the country in Jiuzhaigou National Park, explore colored lakes, picturesque travertine landscapes, and Tibetan villages, and access Zharu Valley - seen by only a few lucky visitors per year. All this natural beauty plus time to meet giant pandas in Chengdu!

This is an active walking trip and participants must be in good cardiovascular condition, with reliable balance for stout climbs and ascents at altitudes up to about 7000'. Most of our trails are not rustic wilderness paths, but engineered to almost urban standards - in remarkable mountain settings. While most days will have easier options, everyone needs to be solid afoot.
