We recently did a tour of all the five Songtsam lodges in Yunnan. Spent approx. 9 days. Before booking, we had to choose between a tropical destination with sandy beaches, palm trees, warm weather or seeing more of China. Whilst the tropical destination sounded really alluring to us, as we actually live in China, we eventually chose for Yunnan. And... More

My family and I spent 10 days traveling along the Songtsam lodges (lugu --> tacheng --> benziland --> meili --> lugu) and Tacheng was our favorite. It is set in an idyllic countryside village, up on a hill overlooking barley and rice fields. The building is large enough to house 10 rooms, but cosy enough to make you feel like... More

This Lodge is one of the best places we've ever stayed, anywhere in the world. It's location in a quiet rural village overlooking a beautiful valley and snow-peaked mountains is stunning, the rooms are huge and very well-equipped, and the staff is very professional and helpful. Lunch and dinner are provided, and the three cooks from Tacheng village managed to... More

We did the Songtsam circuit and the Tacheng hotel was our first stop. The staff was first rated, and I was especially impressed with the manager. She ran an efficient operation, and everyone in the staff was well trained and we'll corordinated. Tacheng itself is a little town, but the golden monkeys are reason enough to make this a stop....

This hotel, nestled in a mountain valley is near the Baima Nature Reserve where the Yunnan Snub nosed monkeys are found. We had a family room which was big, really comfortable and with a balcony overlooking terraced rice fields. The meals we had here incorporated fresh vegetables grown in their own garden. We had mainly vegetarian dishes and they were... More

Stayed here for two nights as part of a Songtsam Circuit tour. Beautifully decorated, comfortable room. Delicious food with many choices; our meals were included with our overall tour. The hotel looks out over terraced rice fields, and there are walks near-by in small villages. We also went to the Baima Nature Reserve to see the endangered golden monkeys. We... More

This was our favourite of the four Songtsam Lodges we stayed at - very small, great views, interesting countryside. Very friendly service and good dinners. Breakfast is ok, but the packed lunches (which are western style) are not great. Almost no English spoken...

Truly wonderful hotel, from the beautiful design to the fabulous staff who were so friendly and went out of their way to help (but never in an intrusive way). The food was excellent, we are vegetarians but this didn't phase the chef who prepared course after course of wonderful fresh dishes for us. And I'll always remember the packed lunch... More

We stayed at 4 of these hotels recently and this was smaller but so comfortable and peaceful. Actually has a small swimming pool and very well cared for pretty grounds. Views not as dramatic as some of the others but not as high up either and no need to worry about altitude. The food was delicious and very varied. Staff... More

We spent Christmas here and amazingly were the only guests! Apparently December is a low month although I have no idea why - stunning weather and as it is a low season for farming there is plenty going on in the villages (weddings, house buildings etc). The hotel has a beautiful location and we went exploring the villages above and... More
