Each abode also features a private balcony with views of the imposing mountain. Those who enjoy hiking or historic architecture can join guided treks that venture across this mysterious land. Alternatively, guests can explore the atmospheric old streets and cobblestone alleyways of Dayan and Shuhe, or trek to the beautiful Tiger Leaping Gorge for an unforgettable experience.
