This trip saw us accompany two families on an attempt to hike from the far side of Mt. Tianbao all the way to Shangri-la. We’ve tried this a number of times and never got all the way to town, and this was no exception. The time was late July, and so for one thing we had the rainy season to contend with. But what finally stymied our team was an outbreak of foot-and-mouth. It wasn’t possible to camp close to Shangri-la and so we had to wave goodbye to our horse team close to Dabao Temple.

It was still a great trip, though. I’ve written about Tianbao previously on several occasions, so this time will give you a photo gallery only…
