Our expectation about this place was high as we saw its rating and reviews on Tripadvisor. However the guesthouse has exceeded all our expectation. Our aim was not to walk through the gorge, but to have an easy stay with good view. So we went to the gorge just to stay here. And we were very happy after all.
What we love: "view view and view". With only CNY120 a night (double bed and private bathroom), we had the best view in the world. Our balcony was right in front of the snow capped mountain. It was so stunning so we kept looking at it and taking pictures of it many many times a day. "Food" was so simple yet so good. Our favourite were pancake, dried beef stirfry with capsicum and spring onion, apple pie and the best and fresh ginger tea. The owner and staff could speak English. They were very helpful, polite and friendly. We had a chat with the owner (Dragon) and learned more about the region and the culture of some ethnic group including his Naxi.
It was simply the BEST place during our entire trip in Yunnan region.
PS: If you don't want to walk, you can just get a taxi at the beginning of the track for CNY150.
