Our initial plan was to walk the route after our heli-hike, but the mist over the mountains decided otherwise. We got to the trial super early and luckily beat the Chinese tour bus. It was a beautiful hike and got up to 700m close to the Glacier terminal point . With all the info signs its incredible to see how far the Glacier retracted the past decade. We met a Canadien couple that mentioned they were there in 1989 and the glacier was much bigger.
Thank goodness we packed raingear💪
