Grand Opening of Songtsam Lodge Nujiang Canyon in the Yunnan Province


Songtsam Lodge Nujiang Canyon

Songtsam, the award winning collection of boutique luxury Hotels, Resorts & Destination Management Company in the Tibet & Yunnan Provinces of China, announces the official opening of Songtsam Lodge Nujiang Canyon in March 2024. This luxurious 55-room lodge is Songtsam’s 17th property and offers travelers the opportunity to explore the surrounding natural environment of the “Three Parallel Rivers,” a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Beginning in the southern foothills of Tanggula Mountain, the Salween (Nujiang) River carves a deep river valley between the Gaoligong Mountain and Biluo Snow Mountain, leading to the majestic and steep Nujiang Grand Canyon, the narrowest state in Yunnan Province, the Nujiang Lisu Autonomous Prefecture, also known as the “last secret territory of Yunnan.”

The Songtsam Lodge Nujiang Canyon, at an altitude of 1,750 meters (approx. 5,741.47 feet) has a total of 55 guest rooms ranging from four-bedroom luxury family suites to deluxe rooms with sweeping views of the canyon and mountains.

The Songtsam Lodge Nujiang Canyon reflects typical mountain architecture with warm toned colors and traditional materials such as brass, solid wood, and untumbled rock pieces, while bold contrasting colors and fabrics pay tribute to the traditional elements of the local Lisu ethnic group.

Tracing the cuisine back to the traditions of the Ancient Tea Horse Road,  guests will enjoy a locally inspired culinary experience with Nujiang fusion dishes made from seasonal ingredients such as truffles, matsutake, grass fruit and lacquer tree oil.

A new escapade, “Explore the Three Parallel Rivers,” offers adventure lovers the opportunity to sing hymns of praise while climbing to the approx. 10,826.77 feet (3,300 meter) mountain peak. Based on the legend of the Stone Moon, guests, along with a Songtsam travel guide, can observe the “roots of the Lisu” in mythology, reaching the deep Yaping of Gaoligong Mountain in search of famous species in the isolated primitive forest and explore the magical diversity of flora and fauna.
