Yunnanuni - Muni trip through South Western China


By Rochelle - Posted on 17 January 2011

If you're feeling like doing something a little challenging this year, how about unicycling through South-Western China?

Ken Looi is organising the Yunnan Unicycle Tour (aka Yunnanuni), in the mountains near Tibet. Participants will be riding from the Tibetan town of Shangri-La, through a few mountain passes and finishing at the Tiger Leaping Gorge above the Yangzi River. It's going to be pretty mountainous but with lots of amazing scenery.

If you're interested, check out the Yunnanuni website.

Dates: 8-19 August 2011

Included: support vehicles, local guide, tour leader, most meals, spare bicycles

Group Size: maximum 20

Days Unicycling: 7

Cost: US$1900

Distance: approx 410km

Difficulty: depends if you like hills!

Unicycling Conditions : sealed roads all the way but all at altitudes from 1900m to 4200m - you need to be prepared for mostly uphill or downhill riding and a lack of oxygen.

For those of you who missed Ken Looi's Mongolia Unicycle Tour last year, check out the photos and videos of that tour!
