After half day walking we arrived the hotel, this was the first hotel in the middle of the route, had a good dinner there the foods were served so quickly. Bed was so warm and comfortable. Got a hot shower in bathroom. And price was reasonable!

Started the hike in Qiaotou and stayed over night at the Tea Horse Guest House. Rooms are basic, nice and clean. Dinner and breakfast is delicious, prices are really fair. But the best is the view: went to bed with cloud covered mountains and woke up with blue sky and sunshine. Staff speaks English and is very helpful. You can...

We been there as our stop overnight when we hiking the Tiger Leaping Gorge. The view is amazing. Down you can see the river and up you can see snowy mountains. The room are nice and big enough. The bathroom is as often in China kind of wetroom. If you take a shower, the whole room is wet. Unfortunately the...

Tea Horse Guest House was a great place to stay after the arduous first day of the Tiger Leaping Gorge trek. It is the first guest house you arrive at after hiking through the top of the gorge. You have to walk through the property to continue along the trail, and for this reason they have an edge in the...

We arrived here late in the evening, and despite what people in reviews are saying, its a long walk to Half-Way Inn, so if you are starting the TLG hike late you will probably end up staying here. We stayed in a double room with bathroom. Really really rustic and overpriced for what you get. Overall the rooms are old...

So we stopped here for the night after trekking for a few hours from Qiaotou as the trek took longer than expected and we had a whole day to complete the trek the next day anyway. So let's start with the positives: -Affordable (costs around 75RMB/pax) -Good view (but which guesthouse along the trek doesn't has one?) ...and the negatives:...

Stopped here one night on the trek over the mountain - as per the advice of other travellers carry on to "halfway" if you can - we stopped there for a drink in the morning and it seemed to be much better. The accommodation at Tea Horse is about as basic as it gets - the rooms are not terribly...

This guest house is simple but clean. It is properly maintained and serves good food. More than anything, this guesthouse offers wonderful views over the gorge and is ideally situated, more or less halfway on the trek.

It took us 7 hours in the rain to get to Tea Horse, starting out at 11:30 after catching the first bus from Lijiang. We are not the fastest walkers and would have found it impossible to get to the next guesthouse (Halfway) before dark. We found the room to be wonderful: clean, well kept, with electric blankets for warmth,...

We arrived at the location by car so we were not tired on arrival and we had the pick of rooms. The newest accommodation block is very nice, we had twin beds the sheets were clean and the bathroom was cleaner than expected. It had TV of course no movie channel plus internet. There was a balcony out the front...
