We traveled in northern Yunnan in August. We organized a tour with the Songtsam group of lodges. That was one of the best possible decision for our holidays.
The tour arranger Li Ling was so nice, so patient, competent. She also went the proverbial "extra mile" in order to arrange the pick-up of our Tibet Travel permit in Shangri-La, coming by courrier from Lhasa.
Coming back to the lodge itself - it is absolutely superb. The 2 rooms - one for our children - one for us were well furnished - well equiped - well stocked.
I would also recommend to spend time in the library.. A great way to relax coming back from an excursion.
Staff - as in all Songtsam lodges - is nice, kind, helpful, Of course some of them do not speak perfect English, but they largely compensate by their willingness to help and their real dedication to their guests.
And then the piece of luck. Well - August is apparently not the best season to watch the sunrise on the Kawa Gebo. However, on the morning of the first night we stayed, we were so fortunate to have the clearest, the most amazing view on the mountains. Even our tour guide told us that he had seldom seen it so clearly.
For that we have to thank some higher being than Songtsam management and staff.. for all the rest - they deserve our thanks and most sincere appreciation.
