      Cheaper than the Jade Emu and Jade Roo. But still clean and comfortable. Its right next to the Jade roo so you can use their bar as they dont have one yet. Great staff. Seriously the most helpful people you can meet. read my blog on getting the isreali's down the mountain. Olivia and the staff were priceless.

      The Lily Pad Inn was an amazing hostel. The minute we arrived we felt so comfortable and relaxed. The staff there is amazing - so sweet and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable and it felt as if you were staying at an old friend's home. The food was also amazing. I've lived in China for two years and I had two of the best dishes I've eaten at this hostel. I should also mention that the cost was so affordable. Thanks for a great stay!

      ... into a guy I met in Jinghong who told me all about a local expat bar who have been brewing their own pilsner and were throwing the 1st launch party that night. The bar had hired a brewer from Canada to work with them at their brewery in the mountains, creating a light and a dark pilsner. Both were around 6.5% and tasted great although the dark one was a little heavy to drink more than one so I stuck with the light. Favourite name for them was Monkey **** being that Bad Monkey was ...

We'd like to say their voices were divine and harmonious, but eight hours a day, breaking only for meals (before which the tune changed slightly from Aaaa-aa-aa-aa-mi-ii-to-o-o-o-fuuu to Amitofu, Amitofu, Ami-i-tofu, A-a-mi-i-tofu), is a long time to try and keep melody and harmony. So what, ...

Our only option was to cling on to whatever was around and wait, though there wasn't much to grab ahold of; hardy twisted plants, impressively still able to thrive at this altitude, provided the best hold; crumbling rock, less certain. Worse was when there was no option but to dig our hands into the snow, then spend the next ...
