The Jinsha River is suddenly compressed from a slow flowing 300m wide stretch of murky water into to a raging torrent as it's squeezed through this narrow gorge no more than 50 or 60 metres wide. You can walk right down to the waters edge...More
This was the most fantastic thing we did in China. We took an eight year old up with us, so not impossible, but be ready for really hard work. There’s definitely a couple of bit which will put you on edge, but it’s all part...More
We paid about RMB 160 each for the transportation from our guest house in Lijiang. We paid for the 1 day trip since we need to leave for Kunming that night. The mini van picked us up and drop us off at Tina's Guest House....More
If you only have a couple of days this is the hike to do. The trail is of reasonable quality, and you can follow your progress using the Maps Me app. Good food and lodgings are available all along the trail so you only need...More
We did the high trail from Qiaotou in two days, stopping at Naxi’s Guesthouse for lunch and staying at Teahorse and Tibet Guesthouse. I’d recommend to stay a night at Teahorse if you do this trek as it’s high up and you get a great...More
A must go attraction! Located between Lijiang and enroute to Shangrila. It consist of Upper, MIddle and Lower sections but tourists usually go for the Upper one. Entrance fee RMB65. You can spend about 1h here.

I presume you are talking about the ladder on the route up from the middle gorge below Tina's. There was no ladder on the trail down, so you might be able to come back up the "down" trail. There were people who came down... More
I presume you are talking about the ladder on the route up from the middle gorge below Tina's. There was no ladder on the trail down, so you might be able to come back up the "down" trail. There were people who came down the "up" trail, and I saw some of these people bypassing the ladder. I don't know the condition of that bypass. Everyone in our group climbed the ladder as far as I know. It's not really a huge deal. It is sturdy. There is nothing to be afraid of anywhere on the TLGorge trip
