Wang Meng has achieved one of the great satisfactory moments in life: seeing a dream come true.

The 49-year-old's dream was to build a hotel with a dozen pre-constructed rooms on a mountain cliff at the Tiger Leaping Gorge (Hutiaoxia) in Shangri-La, Southwest China's Yunnan province.

Wang had traveled with his wife in the gorge area and had many fond memories. The location sits in the upper reaches of the Jinsha River in Yunnan. At around 3,900 meters deep between the Jade Dragon and the Haba Snow mountains, it's one of the deepest gorges in the world, and has a length of 16 kilometers.

One has to gingerly step along scree-covered mountain trails that satisfy daredevil souls. The view of snow-shrouded mountain peaks and threads of sun rays dancing on the gurgling rocks down below is nothing short of stunning.
