Picture Post 6: Dali and Shibaoshan

Part two-ish of our province field trip-- a night in the backpacker haven of Dali and then a night in the only place I've ever stayed with no running water, a monastery on the mountain, Shibaoshan, where ancient grottoes in the cliffs house altars and I got pickpocketed by a monkey

A Dali street

Sunlight on the Dali mountains

The famous Dali pagodas

Temples tucked into the cliff and a waterfall at the Shibaoshan grottoes

An old altar in the grottoes of Shibaoshan
