Hi everybody, I'll have ten days holiday in April and would like to go to the northern part of Yunnan and do some hiking/trekking. nothing too extreme, and ideally somewhere where it's possible to stay in guesthouses without having to camp. I have heard I could do the Tiger Leaping Gorge and then continue to Haba and Baishuitai, or from the Tiger Leaping Gorge to Shitoucheng and then Lugu lake.has anybody done this recently? anyother idea??
Yo, you can do the trek through TLG and end at Tinas Guesthouse. Youll have to inquire at Tinas or Halfway GH about getting a guide to take you all the way up to Haba Village. The hike from Tinas takes 8 hours or more to Haba and there is nothing in between. The road that goes through TLG continues to Haba Village, so you could hitch it instead. You can rent equipment in Haba Village and climb to the top of the mountain with a guide as well. Its high, but not technical. Anyone in good shape can get to the summit (assuming good weather)
