The TianZi Temple of Tao
North Yunnan

Traveling from Lijiang to Shangri-La requires crossing of the Upper Yangtze river. Along the Yangtze's benches undisturbed Naxi villages are nestled in gorgeous landscapes. The farmers of this area cultivate an extraordinary variety of crops, and they do not use agro-chemicals. Agro-biodiversity is at its maximum and a rich source for scientific studies.
In the middle of one Naxi village, a Taoist Temple, built in 1899, has survived the cultural revolution. We have been given the right to use the Tao Temple by the local people in return for bringing new sources of income from traditional crops to the communities along the river.
This Temple of Tao is now available for accommodation. It is built around a court yard where one of the buildings serves as a guest house. It has 2 bed rooms, a pagoda, a prayer house, a kitchen house, and a traditional garden.

Traveling in Yunnan is for experienced lovers of ethnic culture with a genuine interested in nature. From the tropical South to the high alpine North: no other Chinese province offers more cultural and ecological diversity. Biodiversity is rich in endemic species and so are the farmers' fields: full of agriculturally rare species and crop varieties.

For travelers with cultural experience and who prefer tranquility we offer:

TianZi Old Homes

With TianZi Old Homes you rent an entire ethnic house. No next room neighbors disturbing you, no tourists annoying you.

Your home will be in the middle of a cultural setting but smartly hidden from the noise of "development".

You may choose to live in your house alone or with your friends. You may cook for yourself or visit local restaurants.

All TianZi Old Homes have a garden typical for local culture and teaming with local plants.

We also guarantee that there will be no TV set in your house because we want you to enjoy time with your friends or a good book.

As most old homes are mainly constructed of wood, smoking in the rooms is not permitted.

At TianZi we are working on providing a health food restaurant in all places where we establish the TianZi Housing scheme.

For booking please send us an e-mail to inquire availability.
