“Around the World in Analogue” is your bite-size guide to the most amazing travel destinations across the globe, as documented by the members of the Lomography community. Today, Lomographer Meng Yang Chen (@mengyangchen) invites us to the unspoiled landscapes of Daocheng Yading in Sichuan, China.
Located at Sichuan Province, Daocheng Yading is a pristine scenic area at 2900-6032 meters altitude above sea level. It was only being developed and opened to the world for two years, and was not well known by tourists. This one-of-a-kind geographic landscape is called the 'last pure land of our aqua blue planet.'
In May, 2016, as I was preparing to complete a busy one-year internship, I decided to exile myself to this remote place in China for a month. I stayed in a shabby inn and experienced an adventurous journey filled with unexpected threats, deceiving, and runaways. Though totally different from tourism that was when I truly and deeply get involved with the local life and culture of this amazing place.
My companion and I head to Aden on the last week, when the thin air on the mountain was unbearable for us. We even had the thought that we might face death in this primeval scenic area. Fortunately, everything turned out to be worth it.
