Enoyable day up in the mountains for much of the day - up to about 12,700 feet or so. Mindyou, Zhangye where we were last night was at about 4,000 feet i think - tonight we are camped in the carpark of a Tibetan Buddhist complex called Ta'er Si.
Think I have been here before in 203, but will know for sure tomorrow when we go to explore the monestery itself. There are yak butter sculptures there, which I tink are the ones that Roger remembers very well and always pulls a face at the thougt of the rancid smell emited by them.
The carpark was heaving with tour coaches when we arrived even though getting on into the evening. Empty now.
