I and my clients say great thank you for this trip. Clients enjoyed it much, and especially they say thank you for the Russian speaking guides - they were communicating, friendly, helpful, real professional ones. They made more than my clients excepted from them. Give the best wishes for them! 

It total, everything was great. Thanks again and hope to cooperate with you in the future. Have a nice weekend!

  You are here: Home > China Travels News > Halfway Guesthouse, Tiger Leaping Gorge

You'll need to start your trek along the gorge early to reach this well-located hostel before nightfall, but it's certainly worth it. Its position along the highest section of the upper trail (the lower 'trail' is mostly tarmac for day-visitors) makes for unparalleled views.

The hostel was made famous by Michael Palin - who stayed here during his 2004 Himalayas television series -  after he focused cameras on the vista from Halfway's communal bathroom, supposedly the 'Number One Toilet in Heaven and Earth'.

Halfway Guesthouse,Yunnan

The bedrooms are simple but clean and a pleasant terrace enables you to enjoy a breakfast of muesli and yoghurt, or fruit salad and pancakes, while taking in the scenery outside.

If you don't make it here before dark, the hostels along the way are equally welcome refuges and often much quieter during the high season. If you get as far as The Halfway, however, you can take your time finishing the trail the following day and relax as you take in the sights.
