Deqin Benzilan Tulu Lodge Hotel
Address: Benzilan Town, Deqin County, Yunnan, China
1.5 hours from Shangri-La on the border with Tibet and at the foot of Mount Kwama Karpo, Tulu Lodge is run by Estelle, a French architect. She transformed the small Tibetan house into a guesthouse after she has fallen in love with this region, which she called Provence in China.
It is a charming guesthouse perfectly integrated into its natural environment, and tastefully decorated with some Tibetan furniture. The rooms are comfortable and equipped with the necessary amenities. You can have diner in the guesthouse, and Estelle will make you a French meal.
She will show you around her house and tell you about her life and experience in Yunnan for more than 20 years.
