Yunnan Province, China

Yunnan Province in China is one of the most varied and beautiful places on the planet. On a plateau between 2,000 to 3,700 meters (6,500 to 12,000 feet) above sea level is the “Garden of China,” known for its diverse ethnic culture, verdant ecology, and unique geological features, such as the amazing Stone Forest, shown in the photo above.

Not surprisingly, Yunnan is also the homeland of tea.
