I think this is actually Jingang Si (Dorje Dra). Nanwu Si (Lhamotse) is the one higher up the slope in one of Wilson's wider shots.

Thanks Tim - corrected.

Thanks for the link the other day, Michael. I've been looking at Ernest Wilson's photos today - they really are quite something! I'm back in the UK now, so hope to be able to send you some of my own Kangding shots soon.
