“Blue skies & snow covered peaks”
Reviewed 9 January 2013

We travelled to Wenchuan following the Minjiang River upstream through numerous long tunnels burrowing through the mountains. The sky here was blue and mountain peaks snow covered. The air was crisp and clean, a world apart from the grey skies of Chengdu. We were told by our guide that the whole town had been destroyed by the 2008 earthquake. A whole new town has now been rebuilt in its place. This area is mainly inhabited by Qiang minority nationals. The streets around the town square was filled with traders in traditional wear selling fruits in season, nuts, fresh meat, rabbits, dried animal products, vegetables among other things.

We visited a Qiang minority village nearby and had an interesting walk around. A couple of houses next to the mountain side still bore cracks and damage caused by the earthquake. There was a watch tower and a square where the villagers gather at night for singing and dancing sessions. Beautiful scenery, fresh clean air and peace and quiet. Well worth the long drive here,
