About Tiger Leaping Gorge

Picture a narrow trail snaking its way along rugged snow-capped mountains at a dizzying height above rippling jade-green waters and you have a pretty good idea of what to expect at Tiger Leaping Gorge, one of China's best treks. Located where the Yangtze River’s upper reaches - the Jingsha Jiang, channel with force through the mountains, Tiger Leaping Gorge is one of the world's deepest canyons stretching 18km in length and reaching 4,000m in height above the waters. The gorge is so narrow at various points that legend has it a tiger once escaped pursuit by leaping across it at its narrowest point, hence the name.
