Tourists comments about this ECR0110 trek tour

1. This trip is vehicle supported by vehicle access is not possible at all locations. The bulk of your luggage can be stored in Lijiang. Luggage for the overnight stays will travel in the car. You will have to carry personal effects for the Half Way guesthouse and Daju as there will be no vehicle access. Other than those days you will just need to carry a day pack.
2. Accommodation is basic but clean. A shower is available every night except Guole. Facilities are generally shared with some guesthouses having a small number of en-suite rooms. The facilities at Guole are a public toilet.
3. Water is provided each day.

Situated between Mt. Yulong and Mt. Haba (the altitudes of which are 5596 meters and 5396 meters above sea level respectively ), Tiger- Leaping Gorge is one of the most precipitous gorges in the world. The canyon is so deep and so closed to the two mountains of Jade Dragon Snow Mountain and Haba Snow Mountain, that you will hardly see the similar spectacles any where in the world. 

The Yangtze River flows through the gorge, and the water rushing at the huge cliff looks like a fury dragon running forward. The route is challenging and arduous.
