If you like spectacular sights this one is for you. As the Yangtze River makes it's way between the Dragon Snow mountain and the Jade Dragon Snow mountain there's a quite narrow gorge where the water is forced creating a raging torrent. Viewing is easy-park (with the hundreds of others) at the roadside (the free toilets are good)and than take... More

We hiked the Tiger leaping gorge in february 2015. weather was great to do it. we bookd a bus with our hostel which would be 40 to the beginning of the trail, close to the school, but we decided to go a little further for 55. We started our hike at kilometer 11 at the lower road and then hiked... More

it was a realty nice place. there a promenade , you are walking about 1.5 km along the river. the view is beautiful and you may see the power of the river. the walking along the river is not difficult and you don't have to clime, it's flat

Due to a change in circumstances we had to opt for the one day trip, and found useful information very hard to come-by. We discovered that there was a bus that left Lijiang bus station every morning at 8:30am and cost 27rmb each, so we bought two tickets. Later that night we showed our tickets to the staff at our...

After reading trip reports, my mother and I girded our loins for a relatively easy two hour walk to the Naxi Guest House and then a tough climb up the twenty-bends. However the normal path to the Naxi GH is blocked either by construction or a rock slide. As a result, the path takes you straight up a mountain. It... More

Spent three days in the gorge hiking and exploring. We took a bus out of the gorge, and in my opinion hiking is the the only option. Busing in and out wouldn't do it justice. Get out there and explore the villages and incredibly comfortable guesthouses along the way! (Especially Tibetan guesthouse in Walnut Grove!!)

NOTE: it seems like these one star reviews are of people who did day trips to only the middle gorge which would be a disappointment.... Doing a 2 day trek on the high trail is an amazing experience that should not be missed. The hike is somewhat strenuous but should not be a problem for most people. Staying at the... More

Quite a sight and experience. Best go with a guide to give you the run-down and show you the best places, and also to get away from the tourists, who arrive in hordes to the rock and viewing area.

Its a ROCK!!! nothing special about a rock. but the walk was nice along the semi polluted river. I would skip this place and save 3 hours doing something else.
