Konkaling development

The Konkaling peaks have become a major tourist attraction for Chinese trekkers. It's China's version of Yellowstone park, and even featured in China's version of the reality TV programme Survivor. One of the downsides to this is the hasty and not very pleasant development that is taking place - such as these dormitory shacks thrown up around the Chonggu monastery.

I can't complain though - I stayed there.
