Baoshan to Mangkuan 保山到芒宽

The road from Baoshan to Mangkuan is very scenic  through the Nujiang valley with crops of juicy tall sugarcane and ragged mountains on either side of the “highway”, the road winds over  and follows the Nujiang river.

The Baoshan to Mangkuan road  winds through the Hengduan Mountains with more than ninety percent of its territory occupied by medium mountain and quasi-mountain areas with seven percent area that is plateau plains and basins/valleys.

我们回到住的酒店,在周围到处闲逛,对于旅行的人来说,猎食是一项很有趣的事情,虽说小吃很好,但是小吃不能够填饱肚子,特别是晚餐,一般来说我们都会找一家饭店吃晚饭。但是保山好象是小吃的天下,晚上六点后就开始有烧烤出现了,这香香的烤排骨,真得很好吃。

第二天中饭过后就决定向下一个目的地出发,先问清楚如何去汽车站。我们本想直接去六库的,但是去六库的话就不能沿着怒江而上,而是从高速公路去,要想沿江而上就只能先去道街,从道街再转车去六库,而保山到道街就45分钟的路程,最后和勺儿商量先去芒宽,从保山去芒宽有三个小时的路程,这样最好,出门旅游不能每天只走半小时的路程,车开前还买了保山出名的绿蚕豆,味道一般。

On the second day we decided to catch the local bus from Baoshan to Mangkuan.
