Tiger Leaping Gorge is located 60 km north of Lijiang city, Yunnan in south-western China where the Jinsha River passes between the 5,596–meter-high Jade Dragon Snow Mountain (玉龙雪山) and the 5,396–meter-high Haba Snow Mountain (哈巴雪山), in a series of rapids between 2,000 meter cliffs. It is one of the deepest canyons in the world and has a height of 3,900 m and is 17 km long.
