I want to do this trip but start from Shangri-la. Is the road to Chengdu open? I heard that they recently denied lots of foreigners from doing this trip.

Beautiful photography. Thanks for the reminder of our trip along part of this route!


Does anyone know what the travel situation for foreigners is right now in Western Sichuan? We want to take a trip from Chengdu to Shangri-La in the end of May, but I heard about a month ago that they weren't letting foreigners in.


Eight days is pretty short for this distance. Though it is possible, you won't be able to spend much time exploring places along this route and also won't have more than about 1 day to explore Chengdu. I recommend giving yourself at least an additional 2 or 3 days.


Is there enough time to visit chengdu from shangrila in 8days, any suggestions?
