        nice restaurant. I guess it's exactly halfway which is nice. Easy to find.

        Can't complain about the location, the view is stunning. Chilling on the terrace after a day's hike looking at these mountains standing in front of you is priceless. Food was good and dorms simple but nice.

        We stayed at the Halfway GH after a day of hiking. It was a great location. Rooms were comfortable and they offered ensuite bathrooms in some of the rooms. The food was good. The best part was the terrace. It overlooked the mountain for amazing views. The courtyard and common space was very nice. Great place to spend the night after the hike.

        This is the place to stay if you're on the Tiger Leaping Gorge trek. It's a great location after 4-6 hours of hiking, good food, fun balcony for drinking and games and amazing views from the bathroom. The views make you quickly forget that your squatting into a narrow passageway shared by another person only a foot away from you. Highly recommend this place!

        Basic accomodation but the views more than make up for it. The woman who ran the place was very friendly too and helped me with my Mandarin.
        The food and drinks was very cheap considering they practically have a monopoly up there. 10 of us bought a load of dishes and ate like kings for $3 each!

        As the only sight in Yunnan that I had actually heard of before I started planning the trip, Tiger Leaping Gorge was to be one of the highlights of my time in Asia. One of the deepest gorges in the world and one of the continent's more challenging hikes, it is THE must-have experience for any visitor to the province. Getting there could not have …

        Apparently a tiger leaped from one side of the gorge to the other, but I honestly doubt tigers even live here. Anyway this was probably my first serious hiking experience in China. Unlike every other place that has cement steps all the way up and down, this place is apparently preserved by the locals who make their own trails and bridges. They …
