Yunnan Climates

   Yunnan's climate turns out to be the subtropical plateau monsoon type. Thanks to its unique geographic location, highly complex topography, and big variations in elevation, Yunnan exhibits diversified climates. The major characteristics include: slight temperature variation year round but sharp between day and night; distinct dry and rainy seasons and an obvious altitudinal variation in climate. Generally speaking, the temperature drops by 0.5 ℃ with every altitudinal 100-meter rise. The diversity of Yunnan's climatic types could be better described with a local saying, "One can experience all four seasons in the same mountain and each season is just a few miles away from each other" .
