I don’t know if words give the full picture of how exciting to nightmarish travel is on this road. This is “adventure travel” without leave the seat of your vehicle. You failed to mention the behemoth sized trucks and maniac bus drivers that add to the terror. Thank you for your post. One day we will return to this drive and it will be a nice four lane highway, and the thrill will be gone.

Try the road north of Bingzhongluo, in NW Yunnan, or the road south from Deqing along the Mekong (Lancang) for starters. The road from Muli to Chabulang in Sichuan is also a shocker.

The caption in your blog has no problem. The questionable one is from http://www.reuters.com/news/pictures/sea rchpopup?picId=3811598 (A Tibetan woman dressed in traditional Qiang minority attire sits in her home in Baima Township located around 200 kilometres (124 miles) north of the city of Mianyang, Sichuan province, March 28, 2008.) The woman looks like a Qiang Chinese, not a Tibetan Chinese. Qiang is another minority out of 56 ethnic groups in China. So a tibetan wears traditional Qiang attire doesn’t make lot of sense to me.

Keep’m coming mate!

How come you didn’t get busted? We need details…….
