Today a friend and I wanted to see how bad the road construction was on the road to Deqin. We were hoping to get to Nixi. I can honestly say that road is a nightmare. Lots of traffic, dust, potholes, loose gravel you get the picture.

We me some poor cyclists who were fully loaded and they seemed a bit discouraged about the situation. They were thinking to make it to Deqin in two days. Ah..I doubt that will happen. Why? The road is just too nasty. We just made it to the first pass outside Shangri-la still had some amazing views though we chewing lots to dust.
