After heavy rainfall in recent days in Shangri-La, Yunnan province, the volume of water in Hutiaoxia (Tiger Leaping Gorge) has risen significantly, creating a spectacular sight for tourists.



The gorge is located on the upper reaches of the Jinsha River in Yunnan. At around 3,900 meters deep between Jade Dragon and the Haba Snow Mountains, it's one of the deepest gorges in the world.


The tourist season has now begun at the gorge in Shangri-La. It will last until early September.
