I went to Szechuan/Sichuan, China for vacation last week. Besides the nice sceneries, one of the most memorable things I saw there were the white yaks (牦牛). There are millions of yaks in China. These yaks are located mainly in the high, cold mountainous areas of China. Yaks have long, shaggy fur which reaches almost to the ground. They also have dense woolen undercoat for winter protection. Besides the white coloured yaks, there are black coloured yaks as well.

There are few white yaks (more than 5) available for tourists to take photos with and to have a ride. These white yaks are just too cute. Their soft, fluffy white coloured fur and short legs... RMB 5 per ride. Of course I won't missed out the chance to have a ride on these white yaks. Yaks dislike people patting their heads ;)
There is one camel next to the crowd of yaks. I didn't take a ride on the camel cos it seems scary to climb up the little ladder to ride the camel. But now thinking back, I really regret for not taking a ride on the camel :(
The scenic view nearby the white yaks and camel. The partially frozen lake (now is Winter time in China).
Errr... Yak skull.
And not forgetting... Yak Meat. Sad to think that those poor cute yaks are killed :( This photo was taken in different location (in town area).
