Tiger Leaping Gorge
I had to scurry to Tiger Leaping Gorge to do an overnight hike staying in a hostel half way. Extremely nice views on par with some of Nepal I saw, and the weather mostly cooperated this time stopping as I began and starting right before my night stop. I finished the hike on my birthday which was pleasant.
I kept seeing signs for some mysterious “half-way” location. Every local I passed, when troubled, would point up the trail and say, “half-way.” What or where in God’s name is this? Several guesthouses incorporate the words and innumerable signs letter the trails. I think its some kind of scheme to keep you moving.
