Sure, we were there during the low season... but it was difficult to find the owner or anyone working there at all times. The rooms were cheap, for a reason. First we planned to stay in a dorm, but the community shower was across the street in what appeared to be the owners room. We changed to private rooms but... More

1 night in a twin bedroom with private bathroom This guesthouse is located in walnut grove, 30 minutes by foot from Tina's Guesthouse. We were in different guesthouses during our trek in the Tiger Leaping Gorge (to have breakfast, lunch, dinner and to sleep) and Chateau de woody was definitively the best one. Pros - Beautiful dinning room/lounge with a... More

Together with three other people I met on the trek in the Gorge, we were the only ones staying at Woody's at the time. The service was excellent (lots better than at the Halfway House). They invited us up to their own place and offered us yak butter tea, which, unfortunately I found disgusting, but hey, it's a local tradition.... More

We stayed at Chateau de Woody after two days of hiking in Tiger Leaping Gorge and loved it. The owner and staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was spotless, food was excellent and the terrace overlooking the gorge was a great place to relax and soothe aching muscles. If you walk as far as Walnut Garden I cannot... More

We stayed here the second night in the gorge. Woody's is a nice guesthouse, rooms with a view, and a beautiful terrace. Jenny runs the place and does a great job: very friendly! The food is good and cheap and makes the place a really nice stay. If you want to stay more than one night in the gorge, then... More

We stayed here on our second night at Tiger Leaping Gorge. The room was only Y60 for a double with ensuite - quite a bargain compared to the guest houses along the trail. There weren't many people staying in Walnut Garden because most people returned to Lijiang from Tina's on the 4PM bus. We stayed the extra night at Woody's... More

Seems like the two options in Walnut Garden are Wood's and Sean's (and there's some bad blood between them). This is actually too bad, because the wonderful setting deserves better. And, frankly, it's rather surprising it doesn't have anything better because Tiger Leaping Gorge has been on the beaten path for over twenty years. (It seems like Tina's up the... More

We stayed at Woody’s as part of a two week bicycle tour of Yunnan. Woody’s guest house is the first hotel one encounters when approaching Tiger Leaping Gorge from the east [as we did]. Conversely, it is the last hotel of Tiger Leaping Gorge when approaching from the west [the way most people arrive]. As we appoached from the east... More
