Another random photo moment with a solo cyclist at the top of a windy pass. I could do with a big banner like that for this trip!
It was a sweet 50 kilometre gradual downhill after leaving Kanding.
We say goodbye to Tibetan China but still have big mountain ranges and stunning views to keep us busy/happy/exhausted!
It was a scorching 45 degrees that day and so incredibly windy that Jaye and I had to get off our bikes and walk for an hour. Then we went through a 4000 metre tunnel and on the other side was this weather system:
It was a completely different eco-system on the other side of the huge mountain we just ploughed through.
Probably one of the strangest moments of the trip!
The wonderful Zhilam hostel, Kanding where we met a lovely Scottish guy and many Americans who live in Chengdu.
And the view from the Hostel; Gongga Shan which stands at 24,790 feet high.
Another awkward photo moment!
The Giant Panda Breeding Research Centre in Chengdu was an incredible experience.
