The Tiger Leaping Gorge, or Hutiaoxia in Chinese, is the Yangtze's best-known gorge after the Three Gorges in Sichuan and Hubei provinces. Wedged tightly between titanic cliffs, the river is so narrow here. A local legend goes that a hunted tiger made its escape to the other side in a single bound. Here, the Jade Dragon Snow Mountain and the Haba Snow Mountain lean close to each other and a large volume of torrent moving between them cutting deeper and deeper into the bottom of the gorge. In some places, there is a drop of 3,000 meters to the water.
