The New York Times gets tip on Myanmar from Kensington's Destination Specialist.
Awarded ‘50 Tours of a Lifetime’ by National Geographic Traveler Magazine.
China has some of the most striking natural geography in the world, which offers a variety of appealing hiking opportunities. That includes Tiger Leaping Gorge in the southwestern province of Yunnan, where a trek will likely become a highlight if your China tour.
Plunging approximately 16,000 feet deep in some places, Tiger Leaping Gorge is among the deepest gorges in the world, and is home to two paths that can take you on a nine mile journey from one end to the other. Both are certainly not easy treks, but there are beautiful views throughout the entire journey, and in some cases travelers get taken past mountain shepherds and their herd of goats.
While certainly rewarding, hikes along Tiger Leaping Gorge are not to be taken lightly, and there are specific times throughout the year that are better than others. Specifically, experts recommend hiking in May and June. Not only will the weather be well-suited for long treks, but that's when the surrounding hills are most populated with beautiful flowers and other plant life.
