The wind-ing road
On our final day in HuiZe yesterday we drove for a couple of hours up a steep road to the top of a nearby mountain, signposted as "Scenic Mountain Grasslands". The summit was at 4000m, some 2000m higher than Kunming, and the drive was interrupted by herds of goats and views which were worth pulling over for to enjoy properly. The mountain ridges were peppered with huge wind turbines which we eventually drove up close to. At the very top, we found our place in a huge car park and bought tickets for a short bus journey through the mountain grasslands - along with hundreds of Chinese tourists! Still, it was a memorable day out in the fresh air and I got quite sunburnt.
