Stage 5

Date: 11 November 2017
Venue: Lijiang, Yunnan
Distance: 102 km, 2500 Hm

Brief description

The final stage and also the "Queen's Stage" of the Yunnan Granfondo Tour with the finish line drawn high up on the slopes of Maoniuping with view on the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain at an altitude of 3200m above sea level. The start will again be at the old town and there will be a another first climb to warm-up the legs before tackling the mountain to Maoniuping, a trekking and tourist area. Please note this is a pure mountain stage and therefore technical. There is a long descent in the middle of the stage including switchbacks. You go down to 1700m, which is almost the lowest point of the entire week, before climbing 1500 vertical metres to the highest point of the week.

We recommend all long distance riders to plan their logistics accordingly. There will be busses to take everyone back to Lijiang relatively soon, but you may wish to book your return travel on Sunday to avoid any stress. And besides, you are in a stunningly beautiful place anyway.
