Tiger Leaping Gorge
Pickup from your hotel in Lijiang and drive to the Tiger Leaping Gorge. The high trail above the gorge is connecting many small villages of the Naxi minority and offers spectacular views onto the gorge from above and on the 5,500 meter high Jade Dragon Snow Mountain range. The first day of this hike starts relatively easy and leads through farmland forest. After 3 hours of hiking you arrive at your guesthouse overlooking the gorge. In the evening you will enjoy dinner with views on the surrounding mountains from the guesthouse rooftop terrace.
