There's no road. Your best bet would be to find Aluo in Dimaluo(迪马洛) or Bingzhongluo(丙中洛),right beside Gongshan and make the hike, it should be reasonably priced. Otherwise you are looking at one hell of a bus ride down the nujiang up through lijiang and shangrila......probably about 700-800 KM, just to cover about 80 KM of distance.

Yes! There's one I went to a few days ago with some clients that was amazing. It is a high quality Muslim (回族) place that is located up the hill from the old oxygen factory (氧气厂) near Huang tu po (黄土坡)on jindianshan road (金鼎山路), Just walk up the hill and about 80 meters up on the left you will see a large open alley way with a few eateries inside. Walk in and the third establishment on the left is a large looking place that has the characters 马克 at the end of the name. The inside is a 3 floor beautifully decorated dining room with thousands of antiques that are up to 100 years old. You can spend about 30 minutes walking around looking, and then go to eat. Really good experience and the food is really original and good too.

Awesome article, the Lahu are as diverse as they are fascinating and I have never had an opportunity to know more about Lahu outside of the 边三县 region. I feel like there are many characteristics of these Lahu that almost seem very Miaoesque, at least in clothing. Thanks Jim for an awesome article!

@Leo27, good suggestion brotha man, I'll do that. So after what had already surpassed what would be considered the healthy serving portion of laolao, I think I finally said that I wanted to get us some Beer Laos! So we came back with a box of large bottles and in an effort to be cool, I thought it would be a wise idea to open the first bottle of beer laos with my phone, cracking the screen internally rendering it unusable. Way to go me.

I would agree with Mr. Woodswoods and also argue that water reductions and outages should be city wide and not restricted to what seems to be the largest common people(老百姓) neighborhoods in the city.

@scally,

I'd be careful of how much information you provide to this Matt character. Lots of hunters from Georgia and I wouldn't be surprised if he was planning on using this as an opportunity to get in the ivory trade. Shame on you Georgia Matt!

Revolutionary in the grand scheme of food options for health nuts and herbivores in Kunming. From some spicy fresh spring rolls to rockin' lentil curries, a great option for anyone who likes healthy and unique!

Took some older Chinese folk there for dinner the other night and was auctually quite surprised with how much they enjoyed it. The Vietnamese Salad, Thai Style shrimp pizza, and cucumber salad really satiated the generally 'sceptical towards western food palate' of the older Chinese. I of course enjoyed my meal as well. LG Continues to keep it real.

After somewhat of an 'As You Like' hiatus, caused by work and life in general, I was lucky enough to find some time for a latte and a mushroom and cream calzone at lunch today. The place has continued to improve in both the categories of taste and general quality. Those who haven't been, I would say it is in your best interest to make an effort to find the place and if you are in the Wenlinjie/wenhuaxiang area, you'll discover its right under your nose. Great place to chill, relax, and get away from the traffic, noise, and distractions that Kunming brings your way.

Not sure what to say about this place.....been there a few dozen times over the last 3 years. Being a person who has never had true indian food, thus not being able to compare it to the real thing, I think it does the trick. Tastes good and has nice sour yogurt and good Masala tea. Also the food works as a laxative if your stopped up, as a trip to the bathroom before you leave is almost inavoidable. It's take a little, give a little I guess.
