Vrata v onostranstvo, vrata v mogočni Tibet

Kitajsko sva prvič obiskala pred več kot 10 leti, ko sva še nabirala popotniške kilometre in izkušnje in tisto potovanje je bila prava učna ura iznajdljivosti, potrpljenja in vztrajnosti. A kljub vsem naporom ali pa mogoče tudi zaradi njih je bilo to tudi eno izmed boljših potovanj. Desetletje kasneje sva spet stala na kitajskih tleh, tokrat v družbi najmlajšega, ki je dal potovanju še poseben pečat. In teh deset let kasneje je postala Kitajska neka druga dežela, polna najrazličnejših presežkov, zaradi katerih sva jo komaj prepoznala. Razlika je bila naravnost neverjetna. Chengdu, prestolnica Sichuana, je bila logična izbira za začetek našega potovanja in odskočna deska za obisk dežele visoko nad oblaki. Pot do Kangdinga, zadnjega večjega mesta je bila dolgotrajna in naporna. Mesto, ki leži dobrih 2000 metrov nad morjem, ponuja zadnje dobrote civilizacije, prav tako pa je tudi odlična lokacija za najrazličnejše izlete, ki ti pomagajo pri pripravi oziroma aklimatizaciji za večje višine, ki so nas čakale v nadaljevanju. In če je bilo prvih nekaj dni še precej klavrnih, ki pa smo jih s pomočju domačnosti hostla Zhilam in odličnih jakovih momotov uspešno prebrodili, pa se je ob nadaljevanju potovanja nebo le odprlo in pred nami se je v tisti pravi luči pokazala dežela, ki smo jo tako močno želeli videti. Dežela, kjer imajo bogovi zadnjo besedo.

We first visited China more than 10 years ago, when we were still learning how to travel. And it was the right kind of country to get a lesson in ingenuity, patience and persistance. But even though it was soooo hard to travel there or maybe because of that this was also one of the best journeys we made till now. A decade later, we were again standing on Chinese soil, this time in the company of our son. And in this 10 years China changed so much that sometimes it was hard to believe that you are in the same country. The difference was simply incredible. Chengdu, capital city of Sichuan, was the logical choice to start our trip to the kingdom above the clouds. The journey to Kangding was long and hard. The city, that lies more than 2,000 meters above the sea, offers last delights before traveling into the wild. It is also the perfect location for making some excursions to the mountains around it, to prepare your body to the greater heights that wait for you after leaving it. First couple of days were really miserable but staying at the Zhilam hostel was so peaceful and like staying at home (I have to mention those Yak momos) that we didnt care about it. But after those coupe of days sky opened and in front of us opened an amazing country, that we dreamed about it. The land where gods still have the last word.
