After hiking approximately 1,300 kilometers, Chen Rui and his pet dog arrived at Lulang town of Nyingchi, Tibet autonomous region, on Dec 5.

Chen, a 29-year-old man born in Zunyi of Southwest China's Guizhou province, started the journey with his pet dog named Mixiu from Kangding, Sichuan province, on Sept 26. After hiking along National Highway 318 for 71 days, he and his dog still have over 400 kilometers to go to reach their final destination in Lhasa, capital of Tibet.

Chen used to operate an internet company to provide proxy services for an online food delivery platform. In the beginning of this year, his business slipped into a loss. Chen decided to spend more time with Mixiu and have a rest.
