Thur 28 / 10 Lijiang to Shangri La
With yet another long day ahead of us it was a 05:30 wake-up call that got us moving and after a quick fix of overnight computer problems it was good to catch up with Christine back home (before being cut short with further computer issues.
A fascinating 5 hr bus ride into the heavens as we travelled into Shangri La (previously called Zhongdian) at around 4000 m above sea level The weather was certainly a little colder and the air was thinning out.
Lunch was at 3,500m to assist in climatisation of air and temperature
After a quick check in at the hotel we continued on an afternoon drive to the beautiful Suodu Lake were we walked along the 2.6 km boardwalk
After dinner we visited a Tabitan Family house and 'enjoyed' a typical family evening culturual event'
