We arrived by bus from Lijiang late morning. We did not stay here but it is a convenient place (a store room with no lock) to leave our backpack (no charge) for 2 days here. We had noodles before taking the trail down to middle gorge from the point after the bridge, it is Yuan10. You can take the sky ladder (bat 50 rungs, 30m long) on the way up.
After hiking down from tiger leaping gorge 2 days later, picked up our backpack and had lunch here. A must try is kao rou or roasted sliced pork fried with sliced garlic & ginger, dry chillies and pepper seeds. We voted it as the best dish throughout our 10 day Yunnan trip. The three of us had 2 plates for lunch and another plate 2 hours later with coffee and apple pie (quite good too) before boarding the 3.30pm bus to Shangrila. Only Yuan30 a plate.
There are buses or vans, booked on the same day from Tina's GH to Lijiang or Shangri La, leaving at 3.30pm.
