Tour Itinerary

After pickup, proceed to the famous Tiger Leaping Gorge, one of the four great gorges and one of the deepest in the world as a primary tributary of the upper Yangtze River. With 34 rapids of the Yangtze River, it is called the Jinsha, it is because there is rumor to say that you are able to find gold in the river. In the upper part of Tiger Leaping Gorge, you can walk about 2.6km to Tiger Leaping Rock. It is a nice walking along the Jinsha River and Marble trail, the view is breathtaking.

Visit local villages along the way for some great views of the Yangtze River bends and turns from Shigu Stone Drum town. Shigu means Stone Drum in Chinese Pinyin, named after a stone tablet in the shape of a drum, built during the Jiaqing era (1548-1561) of the Ming Dynasty is 50 kilometers from Lijiang. The stone drum is a monument commemorating the victory of Lijiang’s Naxi ruler over an invading Tubo (Tibet) army. It is one and a half meters in diameter and half meter thick. The stone drum has an obvious vestige of what appears to be a “rip” in it. It is said that the stone drum would rupture prior to any war and then fold when peace returned.

For centuries, the Stone Drum Town was always a significant and vitally strategic military area where many famous historic events took place.

After tour, you will be transfer to your hotel.
