Medical Relief Organization for Septmeber?

by anxueli

Hi everyone

I had planned to travel in this area in early September 2008.

Instead of being a tourist, I'd like to be a medical relief worker. I am a pharmacist and Search and Rescue volunteer. Does anyone have recommendations on a reputable relief organziation to join for 2 or so weeks?
Look forward to your responses!

Unfortunitely you cannot go now as they need every search and rescue volunteers they can get, a group of my friends teaching in Beijing just left for the earthquake zone to help.
I suggest you check with the local Red Cross, they can probably use skill people like you to help teach and prepare new volunteers for future disasters.

Travel Tips for Lijiang

Purchase a Map of Old Town

by raraavis

Hand drawn old town maps can be purchased for 2 RMB from street vendors. It's well worth the money. The map provides you with things to see and do in the old town and around Lijiang in both Chinese and English. Obviously the Chinese explanation is much more detailed. However the English explanation provides you with a better idea than the Lonely Planet guide, which in comparison was too general.

I thought the map is nice for framing once your get home.

Middle Tiger Leaping Gorge Trail

by John195123

Middle Tiger Leaping Gorge, further into the gorge than the main parking lot, offers a trail that is less frequented and maintained by a family that lives at the top. It's not in the greatest repair, which makes it nice for hiking, and should take about two hours to go down and up.

If you aren't in very good shape, you might not want to take this trail- it's not really suitable for those not able to scramble a bit. Some of the stairs are steep and the "railings" are little more than chains attached precariously to stakes, wooden or metal. If it rains, the rocks do get slick.

While there is a watering hole near the bottom, there isn't good water there. Bring your own. It's a steep hike and can get pretty hot in the gorge.

Watch for falling rocks... I saw some stupid guy throw a rock down the gorge- DON'T DO THAT! He probably didn't have the brainpower to understand that there were PEOPLE down there who probably did not have brain injuries on their list of things to do in Yunnan.

Take the cable car up the mountain

by Upward

This is the view from the top of the mountain. Be sure to pack sweaters and jackets for the trip to the top. If you are sensitive to thin air then you might want to buy a canister of pure O2. The lift to the top provides amazing views of the surrounding countryside. The bus ride and tickets came to about 80 rmb/ person.

Yulong Xueshan: Jade Dragon Snow Mountain

by SPW

The trip to the mountain was only undertaken after we were warned of dangers because of the altitude for people with heart problems and respiratory conditions.
It involved a bus trip to a car park where there was a large open space designated as an altar, and the usual tourist shops. Here we transfered to another bus, as only experienced local drivers are allowed to travel the next section. We wound our way up, passing a milky green colored lake (from the water of melting glaciers), to the chairlift.
After a 25 minute chairlift ride we reached the Yak Meadow at an elevation of 3650m ( c.12000 ft). There was a lamasery on the meadow which was studded with cream, blue, white and pink wildflowers. In the distance yak were grazing beneath the upper snowy peaks of the mountain, over which the cloud hung low. It was one of the most peaceful and beautiful places I have ever been, and certainly the highest.

Shuhe Waterways

by John195123

Much like Lijiang, Shuhe has waterways that run through town. As in Lijiang, there are three pools at the source, the first for drinking, the second for washing food and the third for washing clothes.
