Getting Gorge from Qiaotou

 Getting Started Gorge trip 

      Tiger Leaping Gorge trekking trail is on Shangri-la district, formed by two mountains(Jade dragon and haba snow mountain) and Yangtz river (in the gorge part called jingsha River), in our Sean's Guesthouse altitude is just 1970 meter. 
       Most trips to Tiger Leaping Gorge begin in Lijiang or Shangri-la. A three-hour plane ride from Hong Kong, Lijiang is located in Yunnan’s Northeast and is home to the Naxi ethnic group,users of the world’s last surviving hieroglyphic language.The Tiger Leaping Gorge national park is located roughly two hours from Lijiang by taxi or private car, although buses are available from Lijiang bus station for the adventurous travelers. Sitting on the border of Lijiang and Shangri-La counties, this protected area is home to rural villages, rice terraces and an imposing mountain range that looms higher and closer the farther down the trail you go. Roughly 16 kilometers in length, the trek itself is an access path that the villagers still use today. Known as the High path, it hugs the mountainside and takes you up steep inclines, past waterfalls, through farmlands and shaded woods, before finally joining the Low Road, a modern, thoroughly tarmacked(for the most part) where buses pick up hikers and villagers alike, bringing them back to Lijiang—or taking them farther north to Shangri-La. 
 
   From Lijiang or Shangri-la we provide private car pickup from old town, train station; airport or bus station or organize public bus to the city or the way to come in to the gorge,Lijiang has two times bus leave bus station come to our Sean's Spring Guesthouse, bouth leave there in the morning 8:30 am. from our Sean's Guesthouse also has two time s bus leave from here every day, in the morning 11;00am and afternoon 3;30pm  directly to Lijiang . leave here to Shangri-la morning 8:00am and afternoon 3:30pm directly to Shangri-la old city.

   If you plan to Visit the Tiger Leaping Gorge,not matter any kind of weather or story talking!
 Actually Lijiang and shangri-la has big raining doesn't meaning Tiger Leaping Gorge is raining. Lijiang higher than Sean's Guesthouse 500 meters, Shangri-la higher than Sean's Guesthouse 1500 meters, normally where clouds cover mountain could have rain, no clouds cover mountain can be sunny, at Sean's Guesthouse elevation is just 1970 meters, most time is sunny, even no sunny but not easy to get raining, so most time Lijiang people just make commercialize talking story to scare the visitors to keep stay in Lijiang , but Tiger Leaping Gorge is just good enough for trekking, we are living in yangtze river side, not on high mountain or high land, don't be miss understand.
     You just call us to pick up you from Lijiang or Zhongdian,we have private car that take you down to the Gorge.so when you are in Lijiang,you just need to give us call: 0887-8806829 and give us your hotel contact phone number, we can arrange a pick-up service to take you directly to Sean's Spring Guest house.
