It's very nice and in the middle of nowhere. Worth seeing every bit of it. But be aware there are hundreds of steps on the way down and same hundreds on the way up. Take it easy . Rest on the way up. No rush.

I did the Tiger Leaping Gorge Upper Trail and it was gorgeous! I met a few hikers along the way, but was mostly by myself. The mountain views were spectacular and worth the difficult climb. The gorge was interesting to see. Make sure you plan...More

July is raining season. It is dangerous for hiking route.
Hi, I plan to do the hike on the 9th of June 2017, is it safe to do so? Because I read on other webpages that in June it is rainy season and it is not advisable to do the hike? Please advise? thank you very much.
