Leshan and Mount Emei
July 25, 2009 - Lhasa, China
Following on from our previous post, here is a more detailed account of what we have been up to over the last few days. On Tuesday we took a bus to Leshan, located 2.5 hours south-west of Chengdu.  Leshan is known for its Giant Buddha statue, a 71 meter tall stone Maitreya Buddha carved into a cliff overlooking the confluence of two rivers.  There are numerous temples and pavilions on the surrounding hillside, as well as a large park containing dozens of replica Buddha statues from all...

April 20, 2009 - Lhasa, China
The train ride from Xining to Lhasa took 26h and we passed salt lakes on 3200m, a Tibetan family (mum, dad and kids!!) on a motorbike chasing there Yak flock and watched an amazing sunrise over the beautiful Tibetan plateau.

Same same, but different!
February 27, 2008 - Lhasa, China
Greetings from Lhasa :-) So, we made it. Yay. Lhasa is more like China than we expected, but there's enough of a difference to make us feel like we're in a different place. Tibetans like colours - everything is bright and cheery - juxtaposed against the rocky, snowy, mountainous backdrop. The 36 hour train trip is not to be repeated, although being forced to do nothing for a day and a half meant we could cope with the altitude a bit better - the highest point on the trip was 5180m! There...
