Welcome to Yushu
After the earthquake most of Jyekundo’s buildings were pulled down and an army of construction workers arrived to rebuild the city. A shiny new town centre built in Tibetan-style architecture (with a modern Chinese twist) was officially reopened in 2014. Jyekundo is slowly bouncing back: it's a great launching pad for the grasslands, mountain passes, monasteries, rivers and diversity of flora and fauna nearby.
Yùshù still has a long way to go, but with improved infrastructure and support from the government, the future looks bright.
