One of the largest problems to blog about China in English is to get the name right, in particular, the name of a place. On the 4th day of the trip, an early rise at Yajiang, the destination of the day is Shangri-La County (also known as Riwa) in Daocheng, Sichuan. And you get more headache trying to get Google translate. But however, the sceneries are beautiful.
The early rise in Yajiang gave us the good opportunity to shoot breath-taking landscape at Jianzewan, here our car rose to 4,659meters, although I still feel at home, many of my fellow travelers are starting to get sickening from high altitude.
Since the beginning of the trip and nearing the Tibetan plateau, this is the first day of good weather, and before the clouds form in the sky quickly, I made this panoramic shot over the mountain range of Sichuan at Jianzewan.
