Travel to Lincang (临沧) is named after the most important river, the Mekong, Langcang in Chinese.
The region is favored by a warm climate throughout the year and enjoys the reputation of being one of the best climates in Asia.
Scattered around the province there are six great natural reserves, five sites of historical and cultural interest and six panoramic areas.
It is situated on the middle to lower reaches of the Mekong, known as the Lancang in China, and the Salween, or the Nu.
The perfect co-existence of folk-custom, the culture of Dian-Tea, landscape overseas and forest resources results in the unique tourism resources of Lincang.
Lincang is the mountainous home of the Wa ethnic minority and was historically seen as too “wild” to be worth settling by neighboring powers, notably British Burma and ancient China. This may have had some connection to the Wa’s image as head-hunters. [wikipedia]
