Litang river valley, Muli, 1924

litang river, originally uploaded by jiulong.

This is the view looking northwards from the bottom of the Litang river valley, near Muli monastery. At that time the trail in the valley was for mules only, and there was an intricate wooden cantilever bridge spanning the Litang river.

It would take about half a day to descend from the monastery (at around 10,000 feet) to the river at aroound 7,00 feet above sea level.
