Tiger Leaping Tour

Lijiang is proud to be the home of the well-renowned tiger-leaping gorge. Straddled between Jade Dragon Snow Mountain and Haba Snow Mountain, the gorge is a 15-kilometre trek and is one of the longest, deepest and most treacherous of its kind across the globe. Local folklore claims that the gorge acquired its name because a tiger leapt over its swirling waters at its narrowest point in order to reach the riverbank opposite.

For the adventurous, explore the Wenhai Trail as it extends deep into a sub-alpine valley with altitudes of 3,000 metres above sea level. Cradled within a sea of verdant foliage, the lake disappears in early spring and returns only with the rainy season. The highlands surrounding the area play host to a wide variety of plant and animal life, including protected raptors, forest wildlife and traditional medicinal plants.
