Upper Mekong, near Deqin, 2002

As you head north up the Mekong from Weixi the landscape becomes grander and the population changes from Lisu to predominantly Tibetan - and a few Naxi.

This stretch is somewhere near Cizhong, I think. There are few bridges spaning the river and the most common way to cross is by the wire "flying fox" that most settlements have.
