Traveling to Tibet as Ordered—A Trip of Life and Death
On hearing that Liu Manqing would be traveling to Tibet, her friends and relatives attempted to persuade her not to, even resorting to tears. In spite of her serious illness, she embarked on her journey immediately.After seven months, she arrived in Lhasa, traveling through Chongqing, Chengdu, Kangding, and Qamdo. In Tibetan regions, she was welcomed warmly, entertained, and escorted all the way. However, the fact that “the roadswere blocked from time to time, the snow was above the calves, and bandits were everywhere”placed her in danger many times.
