Phüntso Wangye arrived back in Chamdo in the summer of 1945, eager to return to Batang. His immediate goal was to begin guerrilla operations in Kham, and Batang was where he planned to start. Phüntso had to try to get weapons and start a revolt. He felt the best hope was to try to reestablish ties with the Chinese and Russian communists in Chongqing. Having reached a general agreement, Phüntso set off for Chongqing to meet Ngawang Kesang, while Gombo Tsering went to Kunming, the capital of Yunnan Province, to get up-to-date information on the situation in China. His assignment was to take the first installment of forty or fifty guns and go north to Batang. Phüntso felt that his whole world was collapsing around him. He had to get out of the village before he was found and killed.
