The Tiger Leaping Gorge

Not far from Lijiang, you have the Tiger Leaping Gorge. The name is linked to a story that would tell a tiger would have jumped from one bank to another to escape a hunter.

I think it’s obvious: the landscapes are manifiques! In addition to water in places of the grooves is a magnetizing turquoise.

We made ​​the trek down a small two days we left Qiatou late morning and arrived at the Halfway guesthouse in late afternoon. And the next day I stopped at the guesthouse of Tina, which represents little walk to the 2nd jounrée 🙂 No, I’m not distributed on the elbows, it was not so tiring that it actually (I not even been aching haha). Good at the same time, I made the hardest part mule that was really funny also (about an hour mule)!

So to those who request it, and fall on my post: hiking the trail from the top is still a bit difficult, especially in the “28 bends” (I’m not sure of the name), but I think is very , especially that much towards the end of the descent … Everything is very sure to do at their own pace. Note that it is relatively warm. It should do well in the 20-25 ° C (in January) and the sun is hard!
