Old Lijiang


Probably one of the most magical towns I've visited in all my travels, the old Lijiang is criss crossed with canals. Sit on a bridge and watch small candle-lit offering float by and soon you find yourself in a different time.

One of the most famous gorges in China may not exist in a few years as more dams are built, but it was one of the highlights of my trip.

The Road to Feilai Si


Almost worth the price of admission alone, the road to Feilai Si on the border of Tibet was a spectacular combination of canyon, alpine, and cobblestoned scenery as it climbs to over 4000m.

Mingyong Glacier Hike


Eleven hours of trekking brought us cross-country down from Fei Lai Si through an abandoned village and a second much more lively Tibetan one to a ridge along the Mekong river and finally at the foot of the Mingyong Glacier.

Summit Hike


Day two in the Himalayas was a walk up to the summit of a nearby mountain, as we moved from forest to meadow and finally rocky crag starting at 3500m and working our way up to 4700m.

Yubeng Hike


A two-day trek to a Tibetan village named Yubeng started in rain and ended in the most stunning weather and panoramas imaginable. The village, life, and scenery made this a highlight of my trip.

One of the few cities in China with intact city walls, their 14 km length contain plenty of treasures still worth protecting today. And if they're not enough, an army of almost 8000 terracotta soldiers waits nearby.
