With 1300m to climb, it was an early start. Rain gave way to sun, and it was beautiful climbing and climbing and climbing. Out of the valley and onto a rolling green mossy landscape. The high plains.

And into the construction site town of Litang.

Last night I didn’t sleep much. Next door there was a hard-rock club playing until the morning – in this monastery town. Then the road continued in the sun, up and down along this steep sided canyon. I’m at the base of a massive climb. Tomorrow will be an early start.
