Which part of Tiger Leaping Gorge doesnt have steep dropoffs

Are there any sections of the high trail that do not have steep cliff dropoffs directly next to the trail. Gradual slopes are not a problem.

Is it true that only the section between the Half Way house and Tina's have sheer drops?

I would prefer the high route over the low trail.

There are 4 trails head to Upper trail viz, 28 Bends, Yi Du, Er Du and Tina's GH. All of these are steep routes.

Tina's GH & 28 Bends are at the two ends of the Trail and it is inevitable.

Thanks. So is there any section to walk with gentle slopes and meadows instead of 1000+ meter drops? What about the section before the 28 bends and then walking down to the lower trail? Is that an option?

No, there is no alternate option.

Lower Trail to Upper Trail is from 2,000m to 2,400m.

Most likely, 28 bends is the most GENTLE slope ^n^

if you don't want to hike steep trail, you can drive to Tea Horse guesthouse, then hiking to Halfway, this part is most flat.
