Dali Yunnan, climbing the Cangshan peaks, 1990

A few pics from my first visit to China in October 1990 [not 1991 as it says on the rest of the pics). We climbed the ridge above Dali at a time when it didn't have any chair lifts or marked paths. We cheated by taking a tuolaji tractor about half way up.
At that tuime Dali was just taking of as a backpacker destination - it had Jim's cafe and one other cafe if I remember rightly. And that was it.
