Tagong: The Wild West of Sichuan Province
   


It was at the third or fourth landslide of the day, where our van got bogged down for over an hour, that I started to think wistfully about the Yangtze river.

We'd eschewed a planned three gorges cruise in favour of a  manic jaunt over the highlands of Western Sichuan, and I was beginning to get second thoughts.

Half the mountain seemed to be trying to get to the bottom of the valley, and with a deadly rockfall in the area only the week before, karaoke and cabin fever suddenly seemed like a very attractive alternative.
