Xiangyun Tours

Xiangyun County (祥云县) is a county in the Dali Bai Autonomous Prefecture located in southern Yunnan Province.As the earliest place named “Yunnan” (the place to the south of the colorful cloud), Yunnanyi in Xiangyun County is the former site of “Yunnan County” of the West Han Dynasty and “Yunnan Prefecture” of the Wei and Jin Dynasties. In the Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasties, Yizhan (remount or post stations) were set up here, so it is named “Yunnan Yi”. Due to its significant geographic location, Yunnanyi used to be contested in warfare because it can connect Dali, Chengdu, Kunming, South and West Yunnan. A time-honored ancient passage stretches through the small town with well-conserved traditional residences of the Bai ethnic minority. In the 1940s, the Yunnan-Myanmar Road, the Hump Flight, and Sino-Indian Petrol Pipe converged with the Ancient Tea-Horse Road, making Yunnanyi a place of great interest and a vital base for the Alliance to fight against the Japanese in the Orient.   In Yunnanyi, there are two museums, namely the Horse Caravan Museum and the Museum for Transportation in the World War II. Besides, fighters of the Flying Tigers and the former aircraft shelters (in the farmland) are also special.
