Teams must fly to Kunming, China, taking a mandatory flight departing at 9:50 am. Once in Kunming, teams may make any arrangements they would like to Lijiang. Upon arrival in Lijiang, teams must make their way to Jade Dragon Mountain, where teams would take a marked shuttle bus to the Baishui River to find their next clue.

Teams must properly saddle a yak, which one team member must then ride across a portion of the Baishui River, where they would receive their next clue.

Teams must ride a gondola to Spruce Meadow, where they would find their next clue.

"Who thinks they're living a charmed life?"

The team member assigned to perform this Roadblock must search through tens of thousands of wooden charms for a set of twelve that correspond to the symbols of the Chinese zodiac. Once they collect the charms, they must place them on a mobile in the correct order of the traditional procession of the signs according to myth; Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Pig, to receive their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Teams must take a marked shuttle bus to the Old Town of Lijiang and search for the ancient prayer wheel at Grass Selling Square, where they would find their next clue.

Teams must put a wish into the prayer wheel via a slot that corresponds to their sign in the Chinese zodiac, and call out the name of their sign. Once they have placed their wish in the correct slot, they will receive their next clue.

Choice A: Hammer
Teams must use wooden mallets to pulverize molten peanut brittle to the right consistency. They must then cut the peanut brittle into pieces and box them before the candy maker would give them their next clue.

Gary & Mallory, Jaime & Cara, Jet & Cord, Kent & Vyxsin, Kisha & Jen, Margie & Luke, and Ron & Christina chose this task.

Choice B: Horn
Teams must travel to a square and pick up a large traditional horn, then lead a group of Nakhi dancers to Wencheng Palace on the other side of town to receive their next clue.

Flight Time & Big Easy and Zev & Justin chose this task.

Teams must make their way on foot to Eternal Tower on Lion Hill to check in.

For coming in first place, Margie & Luke won a trip for two to Aruba, provided by Travelocity.

This leg is a No-Rest Leg. Teams would check in as normal, but receive their clue to start the next leg from host Phil Keoghan. The team that comes in last place does not receive a penalty.
