虎跳峡 & 玉龙雪山 tiger leaping gorge and jade dragon snow mountain

Some photos of five days I spent wandering through Tiger Leaping Gorge, some from the high trail, others from when I went off wandering upwards on my own little journey. This is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been, and I’ve been drawn to Yulong Xueshan since I saw photos of it a few years ago. It is more awe-inspiring than any words I could write, the photographs are only poor scratches in dirt beside incomprehensible immenseness, and the desire to catch a farmer’s ferry across the gorge and climb the endless peaks was almost irresistable.
