Bamei is a town north of Tagong, about 3000m in elevation. There is a monastery nearby.
Until a few days ago, to me, it was just a dot on a map between Tagong and Danba, in western Sichuan.
But when we got there I was pleasantly surprised. The place was a bit dusty, but the view of the snow-capped peak of Yala Shan - obscured by a new radio mast, I admit - helped to make the place feel a bit special.
I sat on the steps outside our hotel and took these photos. It was really great spending a couple of hours just watching the world go by.
I must be getting a bit obsessed images of Tibetan motorcyclists, I admit.
