Tiger Leaping Gorge Trekking 2-Day Tour
Tiger Leaping Gorge is a world famous grand canyon. Tiger Leaping Gorge is more than 30 kilometers long; below the gorge its river surface can reach as wide as about 60 meters while the narrowest point is only about 30 meters. It is the globally biggest canyon with the largest level difference. Shaped like a sword which split Haba Snow Mountain and Jade Dragon Snow Mountain at its both sides, Tiger Leaping Gorge has an elevation difference with those two snow mountains of 3590 and 3790 meters. Even the river running in the gorge has a water level difference of more than 200 meters. There are 18 water rapids along the gorge, the snow mountain cliffs appear more than 3,000 meters above the surface of the river, making it precipitous landscape all the way. The Tiger Leaping Gorge is divided into upper Tiger Leaping, middle Tiger Leaping and lower Tiger Leaping, altogether three parts forming a circuitous road of 25 kilometers. Trekking along the Tiger Leaping Gorge, there are sometimes waterfalls dropping, sometimes stones emerging. Trekkers will possibly feel that as if their hearts and the canyon resonance shock at the same pace. It is a kind of risk you can hardly experience in somewhere else. From the throat of the gorge, it is a downhill way for about 11 kilometers. In this section, the proudly towering peaks are accompanied by an extremely narrow river surface, while a boulder is standing just at the center of the river alone. The legend says that an intrepid tiger jumped to cross the river by the support of this big stone, hence the gorge named Tiger Leaping Gorge. Stop and stand on the edge of Tiger Leaping Gorge, the deafening roar from the flowing water and the tolerance to swallow up the heaven and the earth have completely become a kind of power from masculine outbursts. Plenty of tiger jumping stones latent under the river block the bouncing water rapids, spitting a thread of huge waves, performing a picture of whitewater flying to the sky. Tiger Leaping Gorge, you cannot miss in your lifetime!
