Cycling down the Mekong

Get to Deqin @ 3550m (SH-KM-SGL-car)  – follow Mekong south to yongping at 2000m exit from Dali. Not quite sure of exactly where the Mekong is on the map or if there is a road next to it but Jason says there is and a good downhill.

Mingyong is lowest glacier with diverse eco system

Follow Mekong down. High altitude but lots of downhill.
