This is a nice walk along the river Jinbian (Golden Whip) and its canyon. There is much shade as we walk through forest (with trees yellow in autumn). Especially close to the entrance there are wild monkeys looking for food, so be careful with bags or anything that might draw their attention. Park rangers chase them away from time to time with slinghots, so they are scared of the rangers but not of the tourists, some of whom feed them. Generally speaking this is an easy flat walk through an enchanting landscape; you see the “Avatar” mountains from below. At the end of the route there are some bathrooms.

Este paseo discurre a lo largo del cañón del pequeño río Jinbian. Hay mucha sombra pues nos movemos por bosque (de hoja caduca, colorido en otoño) y paisajes idílicos. Hay también monos salvajes, sobre todo cerca de la entrada, que buscan comida (cuidado con bolsas y cosas sueltas). Hay vigilantes con tirachinas que los echan de vez en cuando; los monos tienen miedo a los vigilantes pero no a los turistas. En general una ruta de ida y vuelta fácil, sin pendientes, por un paisaje muy bonito; se ven las montañas de “Avatar” desde abajo.
