The trek through the gorge commences at the village of Daju. The walk begins gently as you make your way to the ferry that takes you across the river. The high path then leads you into the gorge and on to the village of Walnut Grove. Continuing on from here to the Halfway Lodge where you spend the night.
The second day of the walk via the high road is a fairly strenuous six to seven hours but by the low road it only takes about four to five hours. The high road takes in the notorious 24-bend path. You can either walk the high road which gives the best views or the low road which is gentler, though busier.
