We went on a day tour from Lijiang so only hiked for a few hours. It was one of the most memorable days of my life. Awe-inspiring scenery. A must do in Yunnan. You do need to be moderately fit, however. Anyone with mobility issues should reconsider (steep steps and ladders etc)

We visited the Tiger Leaping Gorge on our way from Lijiang to Shangri la (by minibus with a private driver and a guide who spoke English, 600¥ for 5 people). We left Lijiang at 6.00 a.m. and took 2h to get to the gorge (right after stopping to gaze at the First Bend of Yangtze River, also beautiful). We stayed there for 2h, it was one of the most beautiful sightseeings during our trip to Yunnan. Then it took us 3h more to arrive at Shangri la at around 13h.
