Eastern Tibet Route

We flew to Chengdu, stayed with the lovely Sarah and Scott, two English teachers and then set off by bus to Songpan. From there are after a detour to Jiuzaighou to see the lakes we headed up and West into the Tibetan Autonomous Zone around Aba and across the high grasslands.
We then rode to Ganzi / Garze and then across towards the Southern Tibetan highway. From there we rode back to Kangding before heading back to Chengdu. Our journey was around 1700km and involved huge amounts of time spent between 3000m and 4500m. We camped most of the way, although hotels were also easy to find and cheap to stay in in smaller towns.
