Arriving at site 1* , we were greeted by these young girls wearing traditional dress. They brought us tibetan tea and a hard alcohol.

The cowboy hat is actually a part of traditional Tibetan dress (at least since about the early 1900s when an American cowboy gave his hat to a Tibetan lama (priest)).

* Site 1: China, Sichuan Province, Danba County, road S of Donggu town (2-17 km S) along Kui Yong creek valley, 2843-3514 m 30°29'-30°35'N 101°45'-101°47'E
