We were halfway… having sucessfully negotiated the 28 Bends. We had heard so much about them and were somewhat relieved when we had reached the top without having totally exhausted ourselves. We were feeling very happy!!
Having reached this guesthouse we were right in the heart of the gorge and the views of the mountains across the river were mesmerizing…..
A welcoming symbol found on the outside of many of the houses .
bunches of chillies and maize drying….
wild flowers ..intense colours……
The Yangtze river far off and deep down…..
A steep side valley stretching up into the clouds…..
This bridge was at Bendiwan Village and spanned a huge gorge and side river which swept down into the Yangtze river……awesome!
An amazing walk….so glad i did it!!
