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 :-(
