On the road to Gongga Shan ...
This was taken on the way over to Yulongxi on a small dirt track road that runs from Jiagenba, south of Xinduqiao. It goes over a small pass to the Yulongxi valley. Taken with my Bessa camera, 35mm Summicron lens and Fuli Neopan Acros B&W film.
Dr Joseph Rock was an Austrian-born American botanist who explored the Tibetan borderlands of Sichuan and Yunnan ins the 1920s and 30s. This is a blog of my travels to revisit the amazing places he described in the National Geographic magazine.
