With 34 rapids of the Yangtze River, it is called the Jinsha in this area because you can find gold in the river. Then, you’ll head for the Middle Part of Tiger Leaping Gorge for your lunch.

Base camp altitude indications vary depending on who you ask but we found it to be at about 4100 m so this is a rather long day and the path can get very muddy. Use good waterproof boots. The walk will take 4-6 hours and is mostly through the beautiful Yunann forest apart from three meadows that you will cross on the way.
Today you will hike up 1500M of the altitude, arrive at the Base Camp in the afternoon. Because of the high elevation, everyone will suffer the different altitude sickness. You should know how to adjust the situation and adapt to the high elevation. If you really feel not very well, please tell your escort.
