Day 1 Lijiang to the Tiger Leaping Gorge
Tiger Leaping Gorge
In the morning, you will be picked up by your professional guide and driver from the lobby of your hotel at the appointed time. Then a comfortable ride will take you to the Qiaotou Town to start this 2-day hiking tour of the Tiger Leaping Gorge. During the journey, your guide will give you a brief introduction about the Tiger Leaping Gorge lying between the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain and the Haba Snow Mountain. Famed as one of the deepest canyons in China, the gorge attracts lots of hikers every year.

Upon arrival, your guide will accompany you to trek along the mountain road uphill. En route, you can not only see the lofty mountains and high ranges covered with lush verdant trees, but also have a panoramic view of the spectacular and precipitous Tiger Leaping Gorge. After 2.5 hours' hiking, you will arrive at a local Naxi family. Located on the hillside, it is a good place to take a break.

After having lunch with the Naxi family, we will continue the Lijiang 2 days tour to the Tea Horse Guesthouse, where we will stay tonight. During the next 4-hour hiking, you will be guided to pass through the 28 bends first. It would be a challenge to trek through because the mountain road of this section is very narrow and steep. Then we will pass by the upper section of the Tiger Leaping Gorge. After arriving at the summit, we will walk along a gentle path to the Tea Horse Guesthouse. Your guide will help you check in the hostel and then enjoy your dinner.

Accommodation: Tea Horse Guesthouse
Day 2 Continue hiking and then get back to Lijiang
Tiger Leaping Gorge
After checking out the hotel in the morning, we will continue the private Tiger Leaping Gorge hiking tour. We will pass by the middle section of the Tiger Leaping Gorge and then arrive at the Halfway Guesthouse after 3 hours. The path between the two hostels is relatively gentle so that you can pay more attention to the enchanting scenery and hear the roaring river slapping against both sides of the gorge on the way.

After having lunch at the Halfway Guesthouse, we will go on to trek for another 1.5 hours or so downhill to the Tina's Guesthouse. Along the way, we will go through some forests and villages and see streams and waterfalls shaded by the unknown beautiful flowers and plants. We will get on the highway from the Tina's Guesthouse and drive back to the Qiaotou Town.

Your 2 days Lijiang trip will draw to an end here. Then you will be escorted back to your hotel in downtown Lijiang. Hope you have had a nice trip and we are looking forward to serving you again!
