Very interesting shot. I just returned from a trip (bus and hiking) in Yunnan, and noticed that many of the high altitude roads (that were not dirt) are made of stones about 5" to 8" wide, which would make biking extremely difficult. Was this road smoother?

I think they make the roads like I described so they will not buckle during the freeze - thaw - freeze cycle.

Default To agrin: yunnan is cool

well...this road is semi-paved and quite smooth to ride on.....the stony road (well depends on which part of yunan) you encountered (as far as I know) maybe the roadbed of future paved road....the local can only pave the road bit by bit because of lack of budget...........
