Yunnan Black Snub-Nosed Monkey
Visit the Snub-Nosed Monkeys, Northern Yunnan
Remember Sir David Attenborough introducing you to the characterful snub-nosed monkeys in Planet Earth II? Now see these rare creatures for yourself by spending half a day touring the Tacheng Black Snub-nosed Monkey National Park in Northern Yunnan. This remote national park is on the road to Zhongdian, around 160 kilometres from Lijiang. You’ll spend time watching these animals playing and foraging in their natural habitat (and this is pretty much the only place in the world that you’ll find them). Park rangers will feed the monkeys in the morning, so you can get an extra-special up-close look at them, then they are left to freely and peacefully play, undisturbed by visitors in the afternoon. You might be lucky enough to spot some other wildlife in the dense forest too, including clouded leopards, golden eagles and golden pheasant.
