Enjoy more breathtaking views of Tiger Leaping Gorge during our morning hike. Head back to Shuhe, a small village outside of Lijiang, to enjoy our last afternoon in China. Shop for souvenirs and wander the cobblestone streets of Shuhe, listed by UNESCO for its importance as a well-preserved town along the ancient tea route and one of the earliest settlements of the ancestors of the Naxi people.
At the end of each program, students reflect on their experiences and the issues they engaged with, and talk about how to apply this new understanding to their own worlds. During or after their closing discussion, groups participate in Rustic Ties, a unique and powerful activity that allows students to capture the memories and learning moments of their program to process and share with their communities back home.
