Our hearts go out to the families affected by Typhoon Mangkhut in southeast China and the Philippines. The storm is expected to trickle into Yunnan in the coming days but we won’t expect the showers to change change any of our programming. We have been based in sunny Yubeng village in northwest Yunnan the last four nights surrounded by multiple snow covered peaks over 6000 meters. Each day we’ve been trekking to glacial lakes and sacred waterfalls. Today and tomorrow we will be transitioning into our rural Tibetan homestay nearby. Spirits are high and students are excited to settle down in a village for over a week.
