I am planning to go on a F&E trip to Yunnan during march. Some of the places i intend to travel are LiJiang, 黑龙潭, 玉龙雪山,泸沽湖, Shangri La and 罗平 if time permit. I intend to fly to Kunming and from there onwards go by land transport and returning back to Kunming. Total i estimate about 9-12days. Here are my questions:
1) Is this itinerary ok?
2) Does anyone has a reliable local travel agency contact who can arrange for the land component?
3) I have roughly $1.2k budget per person (total 2-3 people as of now) for the land component (vehicle rental with driver + accommodations). Is this enough?
3) Is it advisable to travel there during this time of the year. I had a friend who had been there advised me that at Shangri La it is going to be very cold and breathing is a problem because the air is thin.
