Dawn breaks over Mundon and the Yalong river canyon

Looking west over towards the highlands of Muli county. The terrain here falls from about 14,000 feet down to the Yalong river at about 7,000 feet. When Joseph Rock crossed this canyon in 1928 it took him "five terrible days". Nowadays few make the trip when you can do a more circuitous route via Jiulong to Mulli by road in three days.
