JiuDing mountain, a 5000 meter peak in the mountain range near the Wenchuan earthquake center (in Sichuan, China) is one of those unspoiled areas due to its inaccessibility. (But for how long: a road is build and a sky resort is planned...)
This third trip up the mountain was tough: high altitude, freezing cold and lack of sleep made me wonder why I wanted to climb this again, but the views were breathtaking and made it all worthwhile! For more pictures, click here.
