Inside China: China's Legendary Mountain Peaks

Reach inside China and you will find an endless variation of cultures, landscapes, and climates. Many Americans have been to China following the standard tourist route. This photo tour, however, is vastly different. Working with the outfitter in China that Beth has worked with for over 20 years, Beth has custom-designed this trip as a truly once-in-a-lifetime China experience. We will take you to places you may have never heard about but will remember for a lifetime – China’s legendary mountain peaks. We will travel to three of these peaks, Wudang Mountain, Mount Emei, and Huangshan (the Yellow Mountains), all UNESCO World Heritage Sites. For all three locations, we will stay in hotels near the peaks of these mountains for the best possible photography experience from morning to night. During this journey, you will have the benefit of two experts in their fields – David Muench, master landscape and nature photographer, and Beth Ruggiero-York, China expert. Ron York will be guiding the tour along with Beth to give you instruction, answer questions, and make sure you have a great trip!
