Photographer's Note

In early July, a myself and a friend crossed the Gaoligong Mountains, in far-western Yunnan, by foot along the old horse road. We left Gongshan, in the Nujiang (Salween) Gorge, and arrived four days later in Bapo, in the Drung Gorge. The trek was very tough, and the last two days were basically walking for ten hours a day, mostly over very bad and quite treacherous terrain. The so-called road, was not a road at all, but rather a very long series of paths through the forest and over the mountains, and much of the "road" actually consisted of rocky streams and waterfalls. It was a rewarding, but also exhausting and draining trek.

This picture was taken at 11:30 on the third day, shortly before we crossed over the pass, at an elevation of 3,800m. My friend is looking back towards the forest from which we came. As is obvious, it was misty, and rainy at the top, and we weren't able to hang around and get many pictures.
