The province of Yunnan is home to some of the lushest verdure and stunning mountain panoramas within China’s vast landscape, which means outdoor enthusiasts rejoice as soon as they immerse themselves in these heavenly cool climes. Savour the vibrant natural surroundings by checking into a quality hotel Yunnan has to offer its visitors, and you will feel aptly spoiled at the Anantara Xishuangbanna. With luxury amenities and gracious hospitality, this elite hotel in Yunnan is the perfect launching pad for all your outdoor excursions. Head over to the Man Dian Waterfall to catch a roaring aquatic wonder in its element, situated within a protected virgin rain forest enclave and framed by the colourful Ha Ni and Dai ethnic communities 27 km southeast of the city of Jung Hong. These pearlescent falls comprise ten impressive grades with a stunning head drop of 20 metres, a width of 10 metres and all the sonic power and oomph of a 500-strond herd of bellowing beasts. Start on your trek from the village of Man Dian and follow the path of the valley for about 2.5km, when you will come across the waterfall’s first grade, which is also its most magnificent. Proceed further and you will encounter the various other grades of this stunning water feature, some with a head drop of more than 30 metres. The trek itself will prove at once an adventure as well as a foray into a tropical paradise that promises to soothe the senses and mesmerize the mind.
