Closures in Northen Yunnan/ Sichuan

The bus station in Shangri-la has a notice saying that no foreigners are permitted to travel to Xiang Cheng (乡城)This is NOT true you can travel into that region and there are no checkpoints on the roads to Xiang Cheng, Litang and Kangding. If a ticket agent is not willing to issue you a ticket ask for a supervisor and you should be able to get a bus ticket. Also you can plead with them and say you will bear the consequence if there is problem. But, there should be no problem. Thanks to the great crew at Zhilam Hostel in Kangding for clearing the matter up for us down here in Shangri-la.
