This Orchids in the Wild tour begins after the World Orchid Conference in Taiwan (last day of conference in March 12). Tour participants should plan on arriving in Jinhong, a city in southern Yunnan, on March 14, where they will meet each other and the tour leader in the lobby of the Shijijinyan Hotel for dinner. The next day we begin the tour in earnest, first with a visit to the Xishuangbanna Tropical Garden, and later in the afternoon visiting a limestone area rich in native orchids.
We will visit various sites near Jinghong for the next few days, then travel to a valley where the only wild elephants in China can still be found. We will visit some orchid sites nearby, then travel to Simao, where we will visit other orchid sites and the Laiyanghe Nature Reserve. In Jinghong we will visit the Jinghong Grand village and observe black crested gibbons, then other orchid rich sites in the vicinity of Xinpin. Finally, we return to Kunming at the end of the tour, where participants will fly home.
