Dan Groshong recently returned from a trip to China’s Sichuan and Yunnan provinces, to have a look at several amazing areas, which have great potential as nature based tourism destinations.
Chengu, Jiuzhaigou, Shangri-La are just a very few of the places that The Hummingfish Foundation will look at developing projects.
Groshong also found several projects which will support “green entrepreneurs” in China, including ethnic families who are offering “Home Stay” and organic farmers.
We are very excited about the projects that we are now pursuing and we will launch the ideas on our website, as soon as the proposals are completed.
