A short introduction... 

Sara's trek story
Sara was born in Xingping, Yangshuo Guanxi Province in 1974 Since 1995 she lives in Jinghong. She started guiding trekking groups to all parts of the Xishuangbanna region in 1998.

With her excellent knowledge of the forests and the minority areas, Sara can guide your party on a individual customized trek, taking in account your experience and the time you can spare for this trek. Saras Aini and Dai language skills and her fluent English and of course her native Chinese language are the basis for intercultural understanding when you want to get more insights into the way of living of minority tribes of southern China, Yunnan province.

If you only have a day for a few photos or a week to do some real exploring, Sara will create a very memorable excursion for you. Feel free to talk to Sara about any specific request (villages, tribes, waterfalls, length of daily walks, ect).

And when you come back, exhausted but happy and full with new impressions, you're always welcome to chill out at Sara's Forest Cafe, drinking fresh, cold Banana milk-shake and have the filling of good tasting home-made meal.

Chinese Buddhisam foundation is Confucian Thought which was described clearly in "Di Zi Gui" . It was also called "Guide to A Happy Life".

If you are a vegetarian, you do not need to worry about food on your trekking, because I am also a vegetarian. I can not find any reason to eat animal's meat.

If you are interested to Buddhism book, I recommand you to read "Teachings On Love".I am sure this book will help you to live a happier life. It is the kind of bottomless resource you can return to again and again for spiritual guidance, wisdom, and personal renewal.In this book, there are exercises and traditional and contemporary stories designed to help us learn to love ourselves, those we like those neutral to us, and those who cause us pain.
