Tiger Leaping Gorge

The Tiger Leaping Gorge, with a depth of 3,000 meters, is believed to be the world's deepest canyon, just 15 kilometers from the Yulong Xueshan Mountain and Haba Snow Mountain. The Tiger Leaping Gorge was named after a legend where a tiger allegedly jumped across the narrowest part of the gorge. Tiger Leaping Gorge offers splendid scenic views, including the Golden Sand River, the Jade Dragon Mountain, and Haba Mountain. The Tiger Leaping Gorge is divided into three sections: The Upper Gorge, Middle Gorge, and Lower Gorge. The Upper Tiger Leaping Gorge is the narrowest section, with a huge rock called Tiger Leaping Rock in the center of the river.
It is said that a tiger once leapt from the east bank, clearing the rock, to land on the west bank, hence its name. The Middle Tiger Leaping Gorge is the most perilous section, which features a huge drop on the water level. The lower gorge is the most inspiring and scenic of the sections. If you travel there, you can also stay at Haba Snow Mountain inn, in Snaba the Shanzhuangluguan, which is about 5 hours drive from Zhongdian. Location: in the Golden Sand River, Shangri-la, Yunan Province.
