It was such a big beautiful montain. It was bit hard in the beginning but once you get out of the steep stairs, the rest of trekking is easy. You will enjoy grand beauty of nature at the mountain. Trekking can be done in one...More

Covered the hike from the Upper to Lower Gorge over 2 days and it was the best thing! The start of the upper or to even reach the starting point isn't pleasant - be prepared to walk on the road alongside mining trucks and cars...More

It takes a while to get there but the drive over itself is beautiful. The flow of water is quite something up close. The views around are spectacular! The walk is pretty easy, my dad who is 62 walked it slowly and took regular breaks....More

I had looked forward to this experience from the time I booked the trip. I was very disappointed. The gorge is very commercial and it really is a narrow river with a rock in the middle of it with a tacky cement ‘Leaping Tiger’ Statue...More

November is hands down the best month to visit. I had the upper trail all to myself and still could wear shorts and a t-shirt in the sun. Nights and mornings are a bit chilly but refreshing. Highly recommend hiking all the way to Walnuts...More

This is something you must view to appreciate. Climbing the steps down and up is a challenge on the knees, but can be attempted in stages. The volume of waters flowing through the narrow gorge really amazes the visitors. Be repared for a bit of...More

Boast being one of the deepest canyon. I did enjoy the scenery on my way to the tiger leaping gorge mouth down there. But the climbing back the stairs is more challenging and need more time. If you think you can't go up by yourself...More
