Discover The Tiger Leaping Gorge China

Dotted along an approximately 10 mile strip of the Yangtze River are a series of waterfalls. This part of the river is flanked by two mountains, the tallest of which, covered in snow, is 5,000m high. According to legend, a tiger being chased by a hunter made the great leap off a rock from one bank of the river to the other, thus giving these gorges their quirky name. This magical setting, where only the sound of the rapids can be heard, is a favourite among adventurous travellers who can enjoy some trekking in the area.
