Demands for Money

The description, under Annoyances, of people all over the place constantly asking for money fortunately does not fit with my personal experience in May/June 2011. Perhaps it's changed, or depends on the season, but I hiked the whole thing (and took trips down to the river) and, once on the trail, I had only one encounter in which someone pushed for payment--this was in return for permission to take a photo from a certain ridge. There were maybe two very casual offers for a horse or donkey ride (offers made as they passed by), but that was it. Yes, also btw, some Chinese nationals (on vacation, not locals) looked very concerned when they learned I was hiking it, and they warned me it could be very dangerous. --j. blackmon

Tiger Leaping Gorge

An attraction rather than a destination. I have copied the text here to the nearest town, Lijiang, which was the only page linking to this. Pashley 09:59, 9 November 2006 (EST)
