One of the natural wonders of the world, Tiger Leaping Gorge was formed by the Jinsha River forcing its way between the towering Yulong and Haba Mountains.
According to tradition a tiger once leapt across the gorge, which is only 30 metres wide at its narrowest point.
The gorge is a truly stunning spectacle, as the rushing waters hasten to join the mighty flow of the Yangtze far downstream, and a wonderful place for a trekking holiday.
Staying overnight in a local guesthouse in the centre of the gorge itself is an unforgettable experience.

See the main highlights of Yunnan province, including Dali, Lijiang, and the Tibetan town of Zhongdian, as well as some of the minority villages in the region.
Only two hours north of the popular tourist destination Guilin, the magnificent and ancient rice terraces of Longji, the ‘Dragon’s Backbone’, offer an awe-inspiring location to experience Zhuang minority culture first-hand.
Urumqi is a product of China’s recent boom, is the regional transport hub and a useful base for exploring the surrounding region. There is also a handsome museum of local history in the city.
Jianshui is China’s last Mongol enclave where the ladies still dress in traditional, fantastically coloured costumes. From this traditional town it is possible to visit the 700-year-old Twin Dragon Bridge and Swallow’s Nest Cave.
Nestled beneath the snowy peaks of the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, the narrow cobbled streets of Old Lijiang make up a World Heritage Town. This region is the stronghold of the Naxi people.
On the very edge of the Tibetan plateau is one of the most important Llamaist monasteries outside Tibet. The 300-year-old Songzanlin Monastery, home to around 600 monks, dominates the outskirts of the frontier town of Zhongdian.
