Private day tour to Tiger leaping gorge Zhiyun Lamaism monastery from Lijiang

1 review
Tiger Leaping Gorge (Hutiao Gorge) is on the Jinsha River of the upper reaches of the Yangtze. It is located 100 kilometers north of LiJiang. The gorge is 17 kilometers long with a drop of 213 meters.<br>The gorge is divided into three sections: Upper, Middle and Lower Hutiao. At the narrowest spot the river is only 30 meters wide. The mouth of the gorge is 1,800 meters above sea level. The river is flanked by Yulong and Haba Snow Mountains, with a height difference of 3,900 meters. It is one of the deepest gorges in the world.<br>Zhiyun Lamaism monastery is located in the small village which is a Tibetan style temple, and the first bend of Yangtze River is a good place to take photos for the Yangtze river.

It s a nice old town which still has a few old building, but it starts to loose it's soul. Most of it is already becoming a Disneyland.

If I hadn't visited Lijiang's Old Town prior to visiting this one, I would have given this one a five "star" review. The Shuhe Ancient Town is a beautiful one to visit, but it pales in comparison to Lijiang's Old Town. I'm glad I visited both as they are different in some aspects. If you have time to visit both, please do so, but if you have time only for one, I do recommend you visit Lijiang's Old Town.

Much smaller than Lijian Old Town but definitely worth a visit. Many shops are still closed but there are plenty of architectural marvels to enjoy. Restaurants were in operation and we enjoyed a delicious local lunch.

We realize that it was revitalized for principally for Chinese tourists but it was a easy section of town to stroll in and shop and eat and people watch and just explore.

This place is beautiful. We had a great time with a small child. Walking around, looking at fish—all occurring under the gaze of the mountains. Not so tourist/commercial, but great.
