Tiger leaping gorge cont…

We were halfway… having sucessfully negotiated the 28 Bends. We had heard so much about them and were somewhat relieved when we had reached the top without having totally exhausted ourselves. We were feeling very happy!!

Having reached this guesthouse  we were right in the heart of the gorge and the  views of the mountains across the river were mesmerizing…..

This bridge was at Bendiwan Village and spanned a huge gorge and side river which swept down  into the Yangtze river……awesome!

  1. Could you, time allowing, just stay for a couple of nights at that place, explore locally and gawk more?! That would appeal to me!
