We are planning a trip to Kunming-Dali-Lijiang-Shangri-la. But due to flight schedules, it actually makes more sense for us to fly direct to Shangri-la on arrival in Kunming and then make our way down to Lijiang, Dali and back to Kunming. However, I am concerned that this may not give us time to acclimatise to the altitude. Is this a major concern and should we just work our way north, instead of travelling south?
Also my husband has mild asthma - is he suited for this travel (we will check with the doctor as well but would like to hear other travellers' experience.
We do not intend to do any strenous activity, just normal sightseeing visits and photo taking. Thanks for advice.
