Package Itinerary

Our guide will pick you up at the lobby of your hotel in Lijiang at about 09:00, and then escort you to the Tiger Leaping Gorge by a private drive. En route, we will stop at First Bend of the Yangtze River, where the turbulent river takes a 180-degree turn, to take pictures, and then have a short stay at the nearby Shigu Town as well.

After lunch, we will set out for our hiking tour to the upper part of the Tiger Leaping Gorge, one of the deepest valleys in the world, drawing a natural boundary line between the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain and the Dongba Snow Mountain. The whole Tiger Leaping Gorge is divided into three parts: the upper section, middle section, and lower section. There is a popular saying about the stone that a fierce tiger once jumped through the Jinsha River from the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain to the Dongba Mountain with this giant rock as the springboard. In this way, locals called the stone the 'Tiger Leaping Rock' and even named the whole gorge this way. Take a 15~20 minute walk along the plank road to the viewing platform on the valley floor. Strong currents of Jinsha River roar through the narrow valley, with waves slapping against the rocks. Please have your camera ready to capture this spectacular view.

You will have 1~1.5 hours taking in the great scenery of the gorge. After that, reverse the trip back to the parking lot in our guide's company. At the end of the day, you will enjoy a 1.5-hour private drive back to your hotel in Lijiang.
