Tiger Leaping Gorge, where the tiger leaped over to the other side of the gorge a long time ago, is considered one of the best hiking trails in China. It is located 60km north from Lijiang old town, Yunnan Province. This scenic canyon is the deepest gorge in the world. You are going to walk between Jade Dragon Snow Mountain and Huba Snow Mountain, both over 5,000 metres tall. It is a not to miss experience because of its unique and magnificent view. It is a well beaten track, but there is a high risk of injury. Commitment and sturdy hiking shoes need to be taken to the hiking trail.
For two days while I was hiking in Tiger Leaping Gorge, I took 475 photos. I thought of leaving the DSLR camera behind, but I’m glad I took them hiking. It was heavy but it was worth it, as you can see below.
I have a lot to share about my two days hiking in Tiger Leaping Gorge. But before I say anything, I want to share some of the finest photos with you. China is giving me a hard time, time to time, but I’m glad to be here when I have moments like this.
Here are photos from Tiger Leaping Gorge.
