Many would argue that the trail leading through the Tiger Leaping Gorge ranks amongst the most scenic treks one can undertake in China. We couldn't agree more!

Reputedly the deepest canyon in the world, the Tiger Leaping Gorge measures 16km long and a staggering 3900m from the waters of the Jinsha (Yangtze) River to the snowcapped mountain tips of the Haba Mountain Range to the West and the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain in the East. It got its name from a story describing how a tiger escaped it*s hunters by leaping across the Yangtze River in one go.

The hike along a scenic trail high above the gorge along the Eastern slope of the Haba Mountain offers some of the finest views in Yunnan. Deep below the roaring waters of the Yangtze River squeeze their way through the, at some places only 15m wide gorge, while, on the opposite side, the sheer cliffs of the Jade Dragon Mountains rise up to the 13 peaks of the 5*596m high Jade Dragon Snow Mountain.

You stay overnight in rustic, clean guesthouses along the trail and enjoy the hospitality of the friendly locals.

This trek is also suitable for active families with children above the age of 8. Ask us about details. A minimum amount of fitness is required for this trip.

Scenic drive by public bus from Lijiang to Qiaotou. Qiaotou is located at the entrance of the Tiger Leaping Gorge (Hutiao Xia) and is the starting point for our Trek.

QIAOTOU - NUOYU VILLAGE: Walking Time 2 hrs/6.5km
The path climbs steadily while it follows the hillside in a north-eastern direction into the gorge. There are already some spectacular views of the Yangtze River below. After a two hours walk we arrive at the Nuoyu Village where we stay for the night. There is some time to relax, enjoy the well earned beer or to explore the village and its surroundings.
Accommodation is at the Naxi Family Guesthouse, a very simple guesthouse which is run by a friendly Family.


Day 2:   NUOYU VILLAGE 每 BENDIWAN VILLAGE: Walking time 4-5 hrs/11.5km
After breakfast we head out to face the ※28 bends§, the steepest and most strenuous part of the trek. The rewards for the effort are spectacular views of the Tiger Leaping Gorge (Hutiao Xia) and the ※5 Fingers§ of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. From there the path is mostly level to the ground or downhill for another 2 hours until we reach Bendiwan Village.
We stay the night at the ※Halfway Guesthouse§ which has a nice balcony with great views of the Tiger Leaping Gorge! The right place to put your feet up, relax and enjoy the scenery!


Day 3:   BENDIWAN 每 WALNUT GROVE Walking time: 2.5 hours/3.5km
After a good breakfast we leave the Bendiwan Village, from where the path is mostly downhill towards Walnut Grove. We have lunch at Walnut Grove before a local taxi takes us back to Qiaotou.

Book your connecting program with us: Continue you journey by private car and driver either through the Tiger Leaping Gorge via the magnificent Baishuitai Limestone terraces to Zhongdian, drive 2.5 hrs. to Shaxi or head back to Lijiang.
