2 Days Tiger Leaping Gorge Hiking Group Tour

At the junction of the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau and Yunnan-Guizhou Plateau stands a Yunnan’s famous tourist spots, Tiger Leaping Gorge. The gorge is tucked neatly between the Yulong Snow Mountain and Haba Snow Mountain. At the opening of the gorge, which is also the mouth of the Jinsha River, a Herculean pebble, about 30 meters wide, seems to be stranded amidst the billowing waves. In this tour, you can witness an incredibly loud, churning and foaming river relentlessly pounding giant boulders in its path.

Highlights

  • Hike along Tiger Leaping Gorge and be awed by the magnificent gorge scenery.
  • Step into Guanyin Waterfall & Bamboo Forest and feel the charm of nature.
