With sadness today we left Dujiang Yan after a short but enjoyable stay. We headed to Wen Chuan, the centre of the infamous 2008 earthquake. Our exact location was a Qiang People’s village named Muka.

The Qiang people are an ethnic minority that have lived in this area for millennia and thought to have originated from Tibet. The Qiang people are famous for their master stone masonry. It was these houses that we came to visit.

The students hiked up to a vantage point above the village to take in the views of the valley. They also had time to show their creative side by sketching some of the historic buildings in the valley.

In Muka we had lunch in a traditional Qiang restaurant (see photos). From here we headed to Taoping village where the students had a chance to explore the village in small groups and gather information for the debate centered around the impact of tourism that they were going to have in the evening.

The students had a chance to climb the Diao Lou towers, purchase gifts and sample the local BBQ’d Yak meat! This evening the students had yet another delicious home cooked meal followed by the debate!
