Tiger Leaping Gorge is a canyon of the Yangtze River. It's about 15 km (9 mi) long and 2km (1.5 mi) deep. It's a popular tourist destination in Yunnan.

At the west end of the gorge is the town of Qiaotou. At the east end is the town of Daju. Most people that come here hike from one end to the other, either along the "High Trail" or the "Low Trail"

The High Trail has seen the opening of many guesthouses catering to the needs of hikers. You can stop and rest, eat, or sleep the night at any of them.

In the order that you'll see them, starting from Qiaotou, there's the Naxi Family Guesthouse (2h), the Tea Horse Trade Guesthouse (4.5h), the Halfway Guesthouse
(5.5h), Tina's Guesthouse (7.5h), Sean's Guesthouse and Woody's Guesthouse (8.5h).

Once you find the trailhead (which is not trivial), you can't get lost. There are painted arrows and advertisements helpfully added by the various guesthouse owners at least once every several hundred meters, telling you how much further you have to go.

Admission: 35 yuan
