Two days and nights alone in the wilderness. Tent and GoPro packed. 4600m altitude. No network coverage, no internet or emergency calls. Not a single person within day's walking distance. True solitude. Tent and gear terribly heavy. Overnight -20*C, sleeping bag makes it somewhat bearable. Still, I am unable to sleep, body didn't acclimatise. Legs hurt, lungs grasping for air....

Unable to hire a horse or mule (300 yuan for a return trip) at the rental service of Luorong Pasture, we begin to walk up along the mountain road step by step and get to Milk Lake, a 10-km return trip ( about 5 hours ). The hiking trail is not paved with smooth stones, instead uncut rocks for most... More

The best experience of walking with myself - meaning the grasslands, autumn colours, brooks, lakes and mountains had me in a trance as I meandered from the top back to the base of the tram ride at Yading Nature Reserve. I was glad I had brought water and some snacks and just enjoyed the hours meandering downwards to the start... More

It's possible to do a five-seven day "outer kora" circuit of the three mountains: Chanadorje, Jambeyang and Shenrezig. It's a tough walk that involves crossing seven passes at altitudes of around 4500m, but the alpine scenery is spectacular and constantly changing. I did this with a friend and we hired two guides (who proved to be pretty useless). We took... More

There is no regrets pushing myself through to milk lake despite my serious altitude sickness. Wasn't the toughest hike I had ever done, however, due to my altitude sickness, the hike was challenging. It was disappointing that I didn't get to hike up to the five colour sea, but the milk lake was a big wow factor. Go slow and... More

Good place to visit once for the scenery, and that's all. We did not go all the way to the top 2 lakes which requires much more time and physical endurance (even with the help of horses) Lousy, very dirty, bad food (ended up with cup noodles) and super expensive accommodation (refuse to accept the price we booked via Ctrip....

This was one of the most beautiful spots we have visited alongside the Maldives, Torres del Paine and South Island in New Zealand. However, the experience was more 4-star than 5-star due to the spitting, littering, lack of manners and general noise that is common in China. Still, it's their country, so if you can look beyond those things you... More

In the interest of full disclosure I must say that we did not go all the way to the end of the trail, to see the two lakes there. It was cold, a bit windy, the mountains were partially covered by clouds, so we only went up to the small monastery and then to the first lake, where we decided... More

One of the best experiences i I had during my travels in China. Aden is a very beautiful place, located nearby Tibetan border, with a rich local culture; totally different from other parts of China. Scenery is so beautiful, thrilling but sad... Most of the glaciers are gone (also the permafrost layer)... Aden is getting dry and some of the... More
