After we escaped from the city we jumped in our hiking boots and started a two days hike along the tiger leaping gorge trail. The third longest river of the world – the Yangtzekiang – pushes itself with the massive amount of water through a very narrow gorge. There is a legend which says that the narrowest part was so narrow that a tiger could jump over the river. And that’s how the gorge got its name. The trail first went uphill where we had a terrific mountain panorama. We were astonished and decide to stay in the next guest house (out guide thought we continued and he went to the next village – he had one task to not loosing us. And he failed 😀 ). The next day the trail was leading us down to the gorge and the wild river. We returned via some very steep leathers. It was a really nice and beautiful hike which his highly recommendable! We finished the hike and the day with barbecue at our camp at a cliff 200m above the river.
