Day 1 Chengdu –> Kanding
we arrive Chengdu immediate we travel to Kanding for nearer to next destination and also ease ourself with high altitude . (~3000 masl )
whole day raining, and we do believe at higher altitude locations should be snow and we expected to see snow view tomorrow .
Day 2 Kanding – ShanMuJu
along the road we had very good view as usual, but it is just a start . the snow almost 6-10 inch thick, the roadside view still look amazing
Day 3 ShanMuju
Our tour main target , Mount Mount Gongga (Minya Konka) Sichuan highest mountain ~7556masl … at here we got few viewpoint see it really close
– this what we saw, when we first reach to the viewpoint 1 .
update 2017 Dec 5
before anyone can response the beautiful view, think everyone stand still for this view for ~5-10 minutes … it is good though as we shouldn’t move much at this altitude (~4500masl).
a small slope , but not easy to walk
the view of the Mount Gongga sunrise … we just WOW WOW
and the surrounding view
