  • Hiking along Tiger Leaping Gor Hiking along Tiger Leaping Gorge in Yunnan

    • From: Lux
    • Description:

      People who love the outdoors hiking all know that the Tiger Leaping Gorge is famous for its risk. On the canyon’s sides, mountains are standing high.

      Tiger Leaping Gorge is a canyon on the Yangtze Riverupper stream---the Golden Sands River, located 60km north of Lijiang, Yunnan. It is about 15km long. The canyon is located between Jade Dragon Snow Mountain and Haba Snow Mountain with a series of rapids and steep 2000m cliffs.’s

      It has Yulong to east with snow capped throughout the year. Silver Peaks insert to the sky with absurd rocks on the mountainside. Old vines coil and wind here. 

      So, for I who like the outdoors, it is sure a spots that could not to be missed, even it was raining. When coming to Yunnan in the rainy season, you should prepare for the rainy weather. 

       How can the long and slim gorge withstand the raging water in the river? 

      Turbulent Jinsha River runs through the Shigu town--- the first Yangtze River bay, and makes a sudden U-turn northward from the cracks between the Haba Snow Mountain and Jade Dragon Snow Mountain, and forming of the world's most spectacular Grand Canyon.

      The narrowest part of the canyon is the famous Tiger Leaping Gorge. It is said that a tiger stepping on the huge rock in the river can skip the Jinsha River.

      Most tourists who come to Tiger Leaping Gorge will visit the Upper Tiger Leaping Part, so, for avoiding the crowded tourists we chose to start our hiking from the middle part of the gorge.

      The hiking of middle gorge is from the Zhang Laoshi Lodge. Before we started hiking, the old women in the lodge asked us 10 CNY each one as passing fare, as the path was constructed by her family. 

      Just hiking half way, there is another old woman stopped us to ask for another 5 yuan for the passing fare. She said started from here, the way was built by her family. 

      After the hiking of the middle gorge, looking back to see the way we passed, it was seemed no as hard as imagine. 

      When passing the upper gorge, we saw lots of tourists, so we did not climb down to the bottom of the gorge; instead we looked down and find the scenery more momentum.

      You may not have heard of the small town of Maribor in Slovenia but for anyone that likes a glass of wine you should because at over 500 years old it's still home to the World's Oldest, Continually Producing Grape Vine. The special vine is guarded like a bank 24/7. So what does a boittle of wine made from a 500 year old vine taste like? Check out this video and you'll know.

       

      What's even more remarkable is that during the 18th century virtually every Grape Vine in Europe was destroyed by a devasting blight. The only solution was to immune import vines from Amercia to be able to continue, this vine was one of only a few throughout Europe that did not perish.

      Stumbling over the stubs of mangrove roots, sweat dripping from every pore, I remind myself, this is the reason we have traveled around the world…to see the rare proboscis monkey in its natural habitat.

       

      As my husband and I were climbing the slippery rainforest terrain of Bako National Park, our guide warned us if we started to fall, look before you reach out. The lush greenery around us was host to a multitude of villains, vines covered in sharp spines and deadly green Wagler pit vipers that posed in branches at waist level.

       

      A troop of monkeys could be heard crashing through the trees just ahead of us. Concentrating on them, I missed a step and sank shin deep in a pool of stagnant water, filling my shoe with the disgusting tea-colored liquid.  Quickly regaining my footing, I continue on, trying not to imagine what disgusting things may now be sloshing between my toes.

       

      The excited whispers of our guide let us know we were getting close. The thrashing noises were getting louder so we slowed our steps and hiked more quietly. In the tree just in front of us was a wonderfully large male with a great bulbous red nose and pot belly. Sitting on impossibly small branches, he reached out for a mangrove leaf and thoughtfully chewed it before grabbing another.

       

      This “Jimmy Durante” of the primate world is awe inspiring to watch. A pointy-nosed female and her young were in the adjoining tree blissfully eating their leaves but still keeping an eye on us. The large male climbed down and ambled across the tidal flats, flashing his impressive proboscis up and down as he sent out a deep resonant grunt to his harem and young telling them it was time to move on.

       

      As I watch the group descend into the forest, I realize how fortunate we were to have witnessed these most rare and unusual creatures.

      Kbal Spean "The River of 1000 Lingas" is 1-2 hours outside of Siem Reap.

      This is a nice 1/2 day break from the temples. 

      There is a short but steep hike through the jungle.

      The carvings in the river bed are interesting but few and far between. The water fall is nice. There are some interesting rock formations and vines you can swing off of on your way to the top.
