Hiking through the Tiger Leaping Gorge

Being one of the highlights of China and one of the deepest gorges in the world, there was no way we could come to China and not do this gorge.

We started the day catching a bus from
Lijiang at 7:30am for the 2 hour drive to Qiao Tao village (1853m) where you can start the hike. Although its well known, the tourist bug hasn't really …

Sleepy 3 hour bus ride later and we arrive at the Haba Snow Mountains. After purchasing our tickets to enter the mountain range, our driver stops …

I started walking up a single road and …

    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!
