... off early and had soon finished the main gorge hike, so we took the extra route to the river at the bottom of the gorge itself. Unfortunately, the relatively easy trek down offered no insight into how hard it was going to be to get back up the sheer gorge face.

Tomatoes, lotus root, mushrooms, all that good stuff. They also created the greatest sauce I have ever tasted. Can't even describe it, and won't try. Just pure heaven contained in dipping sauce. It was a bit on the pricey side, but it was all I wanted upon returning to China. Couldn't have asked for ...
