Birang Grand Canyon, Shangri-La County
(4.6/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
With dramatic cliffs up to 1,000 m (3,280 ft) high and its narrowest part only 10 m (3.3 ft) wide, the huge biodiversity of Birang Grand Canyon has made it a part of a World Heritage Site. The location provides an amazing opportunity to hike along the trail leading out of the gorge. Visit mountain shacks in a traditional village and enjoy breathtaking scenery of the misty, snow-clad peaks seen from the roaring Birang River Valley at the foot of Snow Mountain in Geza. Walk on wooden planks along this 2.5 km (1.6 mi) long marvel of nature, a yawning fissure of a great mountain that attracts adventurous tourists from all over the world. Use our Shangri-La County itinerary maker to add Birang Grand Canyon and other attractions to your Shangri-La County vacation plans.
