  1. Dehong-Tiger-Leaping-Rock-in-Dayingjiang-River

The Tiger-Jumping Rocks is situated at the foot of the mountains at the edge of the Yingjiang Basin and 34 kilometers southwest of the county seat. In this place, two huge rocks, like two half - opened gates, block the Daying River, whose upper section is flowing smoothly. The distance between the two rocks is only 7.3 meters, where a tiger can jump from one rock to the other, hence the name. 
There is a saying that you can 't boast of having been to Yingjiang unless you have been to the Tiger Jumping Rocks. After flowing 500 meters further, the water is completely blocked by a precipice, where the Daying River has been devoured by a small cave and only the roaring of the water can be heard. Through the cave, the water pours roaring down the rocky banks, where waterfalls are gushing over the edge of the precipice and form a magnificent rainbow in the sun.

Daying River, which is as wide as hundreds of meters, is blocked by high mountains and thus narrows into a gorge which is as wide as 20-40 meters with the narrowest part, 7-8 meters.

On both sides of the river stand cragged high cliffs. They are facing each other across the river and look like a gate. It is said that in the past a tiger jumped from a huge stone in the river and landed on the other side of the river, so it is called Tiger Jumping Stone. Walk down the river for hundreds of steps, you will get to Water Falling Cave.

At the entrance there are many rugged ripraps. The river pours down into the Cave first and then out, and continues to fall. The whole view is exciting and spectacular. So the best time for touring Tiger Jumping Stone is rainy seasons when there is a lot of water in the river.
