Tiger Leaping Gorge & Haba mountain

On the heights of Tiger Leaping Gorge, the deepest in the world, we offer you to get away from the classic trail, gain altitude and meet the Yi-Nuosu people. Two successives nights at locals, a breathtaking vista over the Gorgeas well as magnificent pastures and high mountain landscapes facing the Jade Dragon mountain (5596m) will definitely be part of your best memories of this trip.
