We all know that in this country we can find a walker’s shelter in numerous locations. There are several along the South West Coast Path and the hills of Wales and Scotland have plenty of bothies to seek shelter in.

I didn’t realise that I would find a shelter in China on the banks of the Yangtze River. This one was extremely ornate and seemed more like an ancient temple than a hut to avoid the rain in. I don’t think the terrain looked particularly inviting for a trek, with it’s very steep sides and walkways suspended precariously over the river, but with a refuge like this I could easily be persuaded!
