Back in Shangri-La

After visiting the Meili Snow Mountain (which is sacred to most Chinese Buddhist people) i am back in Shangri-La. The stupid mountain lodge was closed due to road construction – so my cab driver drove me to the next village. Did meet 2 girls on the street and we ended up sharing a room and as they had organized a taxi to the mountain i was happy to join. Next morning it was kind of cloudy but the sky cleared the closer we came. Than it was a 3 hour hike up to a platform where the people pray and leave the flags – or take pictures – or both. The taxi took us back to Deqin in the evening where we shared another hotel room. Today i had a big bus back to here – landscape is like Peru in the mountains. Quite a nice drive.

As for Terry and his friends – sorry no map over here to show you where but it is all more or less in Yunnan and Sichuan – you have to google it :-(

I like to travel and i like to snap pictures! My mother got me a Eurorail ticket when i was 15 and together with 2 friends we adventured into France. This was the beginning of a new addiction. I do like to take pictures so one thing leads to another and on this site i want to share some of my pictures and some of my trips with you! Now i am on the road for more than 6 months every year. Visiting old friends and making new friends while exploring this big blue ball.

    So much fun to follow your journey on your blog. I am now inspired to head out this way myself.
    I did Google Yunnan and Sichuan provinces and tracked down your path, so cool!!
