At 4000 meters altitude on the Tibetan plateau the milky way is so clear it feels like you can reach out and touch it. This was taken on my recent 150 km trek around Anme Machen in Qinghai province, China. It took me 5 days to walk the 150 km and well worth the blisters. Amazing experience and photos. Would you walk 150 km to see and capture this type of scene?

Location: Trail Round Mountain, Anme Machen, Qinghai, China
