Welcome to the website of Amiwa, a trekking agency located in the Yunnan mountains in southern China. We appreciate the few moments you will spend discovering this beautiful region and our agency.
We are a small organisation, both local and friendly. Here, you won’t find endless catalogues of innumerable countries spanning the globe: we talk about what we know and what we live day-to-day. Yunnan Province is extensive, abounding in new vistas and new cultures for the adventurer. With a land area greater than Germany and numerous indigenous ethnic groups (several dozen), you are not apt to find yourself bored in this ‘land south of the clouds’…
Come with us and find a change of pace! Amiwa is at your service to help you discover Yunnan’s peoples and their cultures. We will lead you through magnificent mountains where you can take the time to contemplate grand landscapes, to relax and enjoy a good meal...without forgetting that it is the trek and the mountain that make the journey.
You enjoy certain surroundings or you’ve heard about one mountain or another: map in hand, Amiwa’s expertise at your side, you will travel across monoliths off the beaten track. The Amiwa team is constantly exploring and re-discovering the trails that crisscross Yunnan Province. We delight in sharing these paths with other hikers of any level of experience.
Amiwa offers custom-designed treks for individuals or small groups who want a Chinese vacation that has been planned down to the last detail and designed to fit your preferences and abilities. Amiwa will handle all the organisation; all you need to do is enjoy yourself while climbing mountains and discovering new cultures. Learn more about our custom-designed treks
Amiwa also welcomes those with a passion for the hazards and joys of discovery and exploration to accompany our team on scouting expeditions. If you are not daunted by chaotic bus schedules, camping in all kinds of weather, and the unpredictability of a new route or forgotten trail, come join us in our exploratory wanderings.

Depending upon the amount of time you plan to spend in China, we can also help you organise the rest of your trip, beyond Yunnan, both in the countryside and on the coast and we can share with you our knowledge of cities like Shanghai and Beijing.
