I've also had some problems with viscious dogs while cycling in Yunnan. One of my friends back home gave me a so-called 'ultrasonic dog chaser', which basically sends out an ultrasonic signal that only animals can hear, and stops them from approaching any further.
I haven't used it yet, so I don't know if it actually works.
Also, I assume it's very hard to find smth like this in Kunming.
But, in case you do, it sounds way more practical than pepper spray, cause you can simply attach to your clothes or bike and press the button.
I stayed there twice as well, and still think it's one of the nicest places in the gorge.
The 2nd time I was there, we wound up virtually moneyless and in need of a place for the night because our driver back to Lijiang flunked out, so we hiked back to Halfway and they let us stay for a 5th of the usual price, gave us food for free, and even some food for the road the next day.
Only positive experiences there on my part, and I'd still recommend this place to anyone.
