After we pick you up from your hotel or the airport in the morning, arrive at Qiaotou and stop for lunch before beginning the afternoon’s trek. The first day of trekking will probably be the most challenging and rewarding. After trekking, you can settle down at the guesthouse and get some rest before gathering together for dinner.
Day 2: Tiger Leaping Gorge Trekking (B, L)
After you fuel up with breakfast, the trek continues through some of the more beautiful parts of the gorge. Stopping by a village along the way, we will enjoy lunch at the leisure of the travelers. Continuing along the high trail, we will eventually wind down to the road and continue for a few kilometers into Walnut Garden Village where we can enjoy dinner while looking across the gorge at the 2,000+ meter cliffs of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain. For dinner you can choose from a good variety of menu including Chinese and Western food.
Day 3: Haba Village – White Water Terraces (L)
After breakfast at the lodging, we will continue the tour with a private drive down and out of the gorge. The road takes you up to Haba Snow Mountain and into Haba Village. After roughly a 2-hour scenic drive, we will arrive in the Naxi village where you can find White Water Terraces. After lunch, we will explore this unique geological formation and walk around the old-growth forest. The beautiful drive will continue up and over a high pass and down to Shangri-la.
