Fodor's Expert Review Sanchahe Nature Reserve

Xishuangbanna Region Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

One of China's first serious attempts at ecotourism, the 900-acre Sanchahe Nature Reserve is home to wild elephants. Two hours north of Jinghong, the park also features a butterfly farm and a cable car that offers breathtaking views. Lodging is in "tree houses" about 25 feet above ground—a unique place to spend a night.
