Be prepared to go down and then climb some steps on high altitude. Perhaps the fittest will suffer the mountain illness due to reduced level of oxygen in the area.

A must go attraction! Located between Lijiang and enroute to Shangrila. It consist of Upper, MIddle and Lower sections but tourists usually go for the Upper one. Entrance fee RMB65. You can spend about 1h here.

The plan was to stop at Tiger Leaping Gorge between Lijiang and Shangrila but the weather was miserable. Instead we hired a driver (500 Yuan) to take us from Shangrila to Hutiao Xia - the drive is about 2.5 hours. Was it worth it?? Yes!...More

2 hrs walk along the trail to see the magnificent view. The mountain view is nice and pretty. Even is tired, but worth for it. The water is fierce and strong. The view of the combination of mountain and water really pretty.
