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
A must-stop on the way to Shangrila... The water was muddy during this part of the year (June). Our first visit was during December, the water was clean and clear. There are many sedans awaiting at the entrance for those who can't climb the endless...More
We hiked with our two teenage kids. My daughter and husband struggled with altitude sickness - they became out of breath quickly and the whole hike was harder for them. But they kept the same time as the others. My son and I had no...More
A fantastic trek for all mountain junkies out there. We did the upper trek & yes, the first four hours are only up & pretty demanding, but the views are amazing & not too many other trekkers on the way as most dont choose to...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

I understand from the driver who transport us that this tourist spot is all season available. The road do have land slide and rocks come Ong down from the mountains which is all season affair, especially during rainy season... More
I understand from the driver who transport us that this tourist spot is all season available. The road do have land slide and rocks come Ong down from the mountains which is all season affair, especially during rainy season. I can give you the email of the house we stay, the son who know English may be able to help you since he is local there.

You don't need to book lodging ahead of time from my experience. I recommend staying at the Halfway Guesthouse which was undergoing some renovations in early August to increase their already large number of rooms (they have an unreal patio with a view overlooking the mountains and gorge and from that point onwards on your second day, it's mainly flat and downhill with the best views of the hike).
For the bus back, once you reach the end of the trail you'll get to Tina's GH. At that point you can buy a ticket from their reception for a bus which will take you from there to Lijiang or to Shangri-la. Given you're doing it in two days, timing will allow you to catch the 3pm departure bus to Lijiang (there may be one other early on at like 9am, but don't quote me on that).
In regards to room, we had extra seats available. I don't think it should be an issue. All of the foreigners we met on the hike (a group of like 10 of us - we all knew each other by the end) all booked our tickets upon arrival and had no issues.
