51-year-old Tibetan Sina Dingzhu's lives in Jiangpo village, Foshan township, Deqin county, Diqing Tibetan autonomous prefecture, in Yunnan province. This small village sits across the river from Meili Snow Mountain with its breathtaking scenery. In the past, it was in a world of its own. Daily life there, however, is mired in poverty.

However, limited transportation and accommodation keeps tourist numbers low.
