Tiger Leaping Gorge Tour

A visit to this scenic masterpiece is the highlight of any visit to Lijiang. Straddled between Jade Dragon Snow Mountain and Haba Snow Mountain, the gorge extends 15 kilometres and is one the longest, deepest and most treacherous of its kind in the world. According to local folklore, the gorge acquired its name because a tiger leapt over its swirling waters at its narrowest point, while trying to reach the opposite riverbank.
