Tiger Leaping Gorge Trek (2 Days)
Tiger Leaping Gorge in China is believed to be the deepest gorge on the planet. The mountains on either side of the gorge reach over 5,000 meters at the highest point, looking down to the Yangzi River running through it below. The dramatic scenery and relaxed hike along the high path through the rural villages of the Naxi people make this a short but very enjoyable adventure!

Day 1: Lijiang to Qiaotou and Tiger Leaping Gorge
Your guide will meet you at your hotel in Lijiang at 08:00am and drive to Qiaotou town. The trail starts from Qiaotou with a slight uphill slope. Taking you through villages and farms and all the way up to the mountain's edge, you will have breathtaking view of the muddy Yangtze river below. After 1.5 hours of trekking, you will reach a guesthouse run by the local Naxi people which is a popular resting place for travelers hiking the Tiger Leaping Gorge trail. You will have a short refreshment and a cup of tea here. Afterwards, you will continue to the most difficult part of the trek –“28 hairpin" or "28 Bends”, which involves steep trails and climbing using rocks and roots of trees to help. But the outstanding view at the end of it all will make it all worthwhile.
