We would highly recommend this resort. Every attention to detail was made. The grounds were beautiful, the service was superb, the food was marvelous, the owners and staff so genuine and helpful.

They originally migrated from Tibet (an autonomous region in China) about 2000 years ago, but have no written language anymore, so much of their history is now lost. Samchalean is a young village - only about 50 years old - but there are various ...
... country and are very respectable people. After we toured through her home, learning about her hobbies, interests, and noble deeds, we walked down the path to her garden. This garden was absolutely perfect. Every flower bloomed beautifully and each one had their place in the green. The colors were almost unreal. I took my time walking up and down the different paths of stone and bamboo in utter amazement. She had a true eye for beauty and loved to share it with her countrymen. ...
... a well beaten path to the picturesque summit of Phu Chi Faa, which looked across a dim, misty landscape to Laos.
By the time we’d reached the top, a deep red glow was leaking across the horizon. We sat on the damp ground amidst flashing cameras (bad idea – you’ll never catch a good sunrise with your flash on!) and low chatter, marveling at the changing horizon and the realms of low cloud cloaking the hills beneath us. These clouds ...
