Standing on top of the world

Reporting from Shangri-La

sunny 15 °C
View Summer in China on aboo10's travel map.

As I said yesterday, the skies were blue, there was no rain so what did we do?? Our option 1, that we'd deferred from the day before of course! What was it?? A cable car up through Blue Moon Valley to the top of Meili Snow Mountain!
How lucky are we?? We were standing at 4500m overlooking the most spectacular landscape! There is a boardwalk up the top, so we couldn't just go off and hike (phew), but it wasn't easy walking because at that altitude oxygen is thin, and there were still loads of steps to climb. Didi was carried by poor Mike in the carrier, and Jie Jie, trooper that she is, walked the whole thing, although bribed with chocolate koalas along the way! At the end didn't want to climb up to the highest peak again, which if the truth be told is actually higher than 4500m (maybe 4550m), but Mike went up again.

I'm not going to describe the view, because I really can't do it justice... I think this time the photos speak for themselves!! I've also put comments on the photos in the album, so check that out for narrative!

Wow! You have certainly had an amazing experience. I knew you could do it! We wish we could have seen it with you but your blogs have been the next best thing. Congratulations to Jie Jie for walking all that way and to the photographer for the great pictures.
