"A great time, with a great host, in a great place."

Hazel Henrik 1 contribution UK and Sweden Aug 16, 2009 | Trip type: Couples

We took Sean's 2-day eco-tour from Lijiang with 2 nights at the Guest House. Coming from Lijiang in the mist and pouring rain, the gorge road to the Guest House was, well, quite an experience - but we had a warm and efficient welcome at Sean's and were shown to a very nice room, with a nice bathroom, comfortable bed, and all wood finish. We walked a bit that day in the rain - still amazing views tho - and had a nice dinner. The next day we walked with Sean up the ridge of one of the nearby peaks via tiny paths through fields and woods - spectacular views and didn't meet another soul all day apart from the farmers in the village we visited on the way back down and some free-range pigs and cows. Definitely worth getting off the beaten track for, although we would never have found the way up without a guide. By the way, the guidebooks say to come in May and June for wildflowers, but we came in mid-August and the place was covered with them. We sat up that night looking at the views with other guests. Next morning, we walked by ourselves down to the river and left about lunch time. Service and comfort was uniformly excellent, food was great and the walking as good as we've seen. Definitely come to Tiger Leaping Gorge, and definitely stay at Sean's.

Tourmaline & infrared Sauna Benefits in Sean's Guesthouse:

The sauna experience - clear your mind and body,  melt away tensions and extra pounds.

Tourmaline heaters in sauna room emit 5.615VM healthy far infared ray and healthy ion which can be obsorbed effectively by human body, meanwhile, through sweating which can help people burn up calories, improve toxin, smoothen skin color, relieve pain, increase immunity, prevent disease, and anti-aging, sauna room is necessary for family health.

A sauna is a peaceful refuge from the stress of daily living - a soothing, dry heat environment that relaxes and refreshes, to leave you feeling healthy. When you take a sauna, the heat pumps up blood circulation near the skin and stimulates sweating. It helps the body rid itself of toxins and mineral wastes, improve immune system, relax muscles, increase flexibility, and relieve pain. In a sauna, you'll burn hundreds of calories without hours on the exercise bike or treadmill. Saunas deep cleanse the skin.

Infrared Sauna:

Using less energy, operating at low temperature and warming up in minutes, Infrared Sauna is fairly new but rapidly gaining popularity.

What is infrared?

Infrared is the band of light we perceive as heat. We cannot see this band of light with the naked eye, but we can feel this type of light in the form of heat. Our sun produces most of its energy output in the infrared segment of the spectrum. Infrared rays heat your body without having to heat the air in-between, through a process called conversion.

The infrared is divided into 3 segments by wavelengths, measured in microns:

1.5~5.6 microns - middle infrared

Among these segments, only far infrared penetrates organic substances such as the human body two to three inches so that the warming effect is very uniform.

SaunaCare Sauna's far infrared heaters radiate this far infrared to safely and effectively warm your body.

How does it benefit us?

Because infrared rays penetrate the body over 1-1/2 inches throughout conversion, there is a deep heating effect in the muscle tissues and internal organs without giving too much burden to our heart.

 you will get Dry Saunas to take off your tired from long hike and Relaxation your body !! You can always check our website for further information:  http://www.tigerleapinggorge.com/Service.html
