Yunnan, Part III

From Lijiang it was a quick trip (3 hrs) to our primary destination of the trip: Tiger Leaping Gorge (虎跳峡). Tiger Leaping Gorge is one of the deepest river canyons in the world. The legend is that while running from a hunter a tiger leaped across the river.

We hiked for 3 days, 2 nights. We gave ourselves enough time for a leisurely pace and it was worth it. The views were incredible.

On the trail, there were small villages of approximately 10-20 buildings. Most of the villages had a guest house for tourists.
