Location:Yunnan, Southwest of China

Reason for travelling:For centuries, countless tea merchants drive their horse caravans through the rocky pathway that clings to the steep sides of the narrow Tiger Leaping Gorge for tea business.

Now this cragged road provides one of the most memorable hikes in the world. Though the route is rather rugged, the imposing scenery along will intoxicate all visitors who pass by.
