Yang Xiao and a group of friends took off for a few days in the mountains southeast of Shangri-la. This is almost the peak time for wildflowers, and so although the weather wasn’t perfect they saw some wonderful sights. Dani from the lovely Maison Suzanne guesthouse in Dali was part of the team, and he was kind enough to send me some words he wrote about the experience. You can download them from the link below:

Yang Xiao also sent me a few flower pix, which I’ve pasted below for your enjoyment. Don’t forget you can click on any image to bring up the gallery in lightbox format.

I don’t have my flower books handy and so I can’t fill all the names in the flower info, sorry!
