Wuxu Hai (伍须海), near Jiulong (九龙) in Sichuan, 2004

Wuxu lake is a pristine alpine lake about a day's ride on a bus south from Kangding. It is surrounded by mountains of about 18-20,000 feet high and there are a few Tibetan herders living around it. It is a beautiful and unspoilt spot, but for how much longer remains to be seen. This is the view from the near shore, a short walk from the rough and ready "visitor centre" with its restaurant and log cabin accomodation.
