Tour of China

Tiger Leaping Gorge


As time was short we could not do the whole track from one end to the other. We planned to do half of it. So we told the driver to drive us to the start of the track. In subsequence of a misunderstanding, he drove us through the whole gorge, almost until the end for a fortune of money. Once we arrived we found out about it and asked him to bring us back to the start. So, We did not order any horses as tour guides, but they followed us anyway, which was nice. I am not used to somebody carrying my bags. (classical german guys donít do this for their better halves as lovely Chinese boys do). So this was a nice easy walk having the horse carrying me backpacker ;-) luckily we got a sightseeingtour with an amazing few and once we arrived at the track entrance we started hiking.


The gorge is about 15km long. A Tiger is able to jump over the narrowest location. From the deepest to the highest point, the Gorge is 3900m high so this is the deepest gorge in the world.
