—— From Beijing to Ali (318, 219, 317 & 214 national road self-driving notes) 

        In 2019, I was planning to go to Tibet by self-driving, but I had to put it on hold due to the sudden epidemic... Finally, I waited for the planned D-Day-July 8, 2021 in my prayers and silent prayers. I drove the rented Prado, On a not so sunny morning, I embarked on a long-awaited journey with my friend K, the "male and the mother" - the goal: the roof of the roof, Tibet in Tibet...

Set off


July 8 (Day 1)

        At 10:00 am, according to the agreement, the two families set off from home at a leisurely pace (the main purpose of our itinerary planning is: don’t engage in rush-style travel, and really enjoy the joy of traveling as you like), and the itinerary for the first few days is relatively compact , because the destination is in Tibet, there is not much energy wasted on the way. In the evening, arrived in Qixian County, Taiyuan, checked into Mingyi Wisdom Hotel in Qixian County (114 yuan/night) and had dinner and sleepiness.

July 9 (Day 2)

        After eating the hotel’s breakfast (last night’s hotel was so cheap, it actually included breakfast, I was embarrassed to eat too much), still departing after ten o’clock, and today I plan to arrive at Huxian County, Xi’an, so I took into account that it is not easy to enter Dazhong on the way The city, and staying around it can save time in and out of the city. All the way smoothly, arrived safely. Stay at Starway Hotel (Huxian Renmin Road Branch) (164 yuan/night).

July 10 (Day 3)

       It’s time to enter Sichuan today, and the mothers-in-law and aunts of the two families should be happy—because there are “big” Sichuan dishes, my baby and I will be miserable, and our “extra spicy Missi” will not work.

       After crossing the Qinling Tunnel, a large truck overturned in the Conscience Tunnel in Hanzhong. It was blocked for more than five hours, and it rained again. Fortunately, we were stuck in the tunnel. Mr. K and others were stuck outside the tunnel. Open the windows. We arrived in Guangyuan at midnight, put down our luggage and go to have a late night snack. The enthusiastic fat girl at the front desk of Guangyuan Chunqiu International Hotel (168 yuan/night) recommended us to the restaurant called "Let the duck's head fly". The porridge made with preserved eggs and lean meat is unique The characteristics are different from the Cantonese morning tea, but the taste is very good and the ingredients are very rich.

July 11 (Day 4)

        From Guangyuan to Ya'an, Ya'an is more than 600 meters above sea level. From Ya'an to the west, it is necessary to set foot on National Highway 318. Stay at Ya'an Shuxi Homeland Hotel (165 yuan/night). Parking is available at the hotel gate and in the underground garage from the entrance of the community next to the hotel; the hotel's breakfast is on the top floor, with a panoramic view of the city. An unfortunate incident happened: Mr. K sprained his ankle on the way to dinner, and for the next two or three days, I'm afraid we can only see his mother-in-law's driving skills.

        Since I got on 318, I have to pay attention to whether the parking is convenient when booking a hotel, because most of the towns before arriving in Bomi are in narrow valleys, and the parking spaces are generally tight.

walk in 318

July 12 (Day 5)

        The real 318 self-driving began. After passing through Luding [1330 meters above sea level, the altitude is omitted below, referred to as meters], you have to queue up and wear masks to visit the Luding Bridge. As the altitude began to rise gradually, the itinerary was relatively relaxed in the first few days to give the body time to adapt. We stayed at the Holy Land of Love Songs ~ Kangding [2390 meters] that night. I went to look for a girl who wore national costumes to broadcast live on a certain music, but failed, so I went to bed after dinner. I stayed at Kangding Xinyueqingcheng Hotel (214 yuan/night). The inn is in the community. There are many homestays and inns in the community. There are parking spaces, but it is quite tight. However, the hotel owner and his wife are responsible for adjusting and moving the car, and they are very enthusiastic.

July 13 (Day 6)

        Today is the first time to cross a high altitude area ~ Zheduo Mountain [4298 meters], and then because of the traffic jam of the 318 National Highway suggested by the AutoNavi navigation, after diverting and driving, I accidentally crossed the Gaoersi Mountain [4412 meters], but I was a little panting and stressed Ear, there is not much discomfort, but do not go to the toilet in Zheduo Mountain easily-the smell can easily induce high reactions.

▲Zheduo Mountain

        I don’t know if it’s the effect of taking Rhodiola in advance, or because of the relaxed schedule and sufficient sleep these days, all the staff basically have no altitude sickness, and they arrived at Yajiang [2530 meters] smoothly, and stayed at Yajiang Road, which is 24 kilometers away from Yajiang County. Le Holiday Hotel (144 yuan/night), the inn is next to National Highway 318, with its own restaurant and supermarket. There is a large empty lot in front of the hotel, and the parking is very convenient. The hotel is backed by mountains and rivers, and the scenery is good.

 July 14 (Day 7)

        The last stop before heading to Tibet ~ Batang, you have to go through Kazila Mountain [4429 meters] and "Sky City" Litang [4000 meters], because the body has not reacted much in the past two days, during the rest of Litang Mr. K and I have started to smoke wantonly. After that, we arrived at Haizi Mountain [4685 meters] and Sister Sea. The viewing platform was crowded with cars, so we had to go forward to the viewing platform below, but the shooting angle was not ideal.

        In the evening, when I entered Batang [2580 meters], I encountered a traffic jam. Fortunately, I booked the Batang Meiyu Hotel (195 yuan/night) on another street, so I escaped the traffic jam. After dinner, go to the front desk of the hotel to ask what time is the breakfast. Thanks to this question, otherwise the trip will be delayed: the hotel breakfast will end at 7:30, and the store said that you have to get up early, because the Jinsha River Bridge entering Tibet is 8:00 a.m. every day. The road will be closed at 00, and the road will not be released until 12:00 noon for another two hours. So we, who are used to getting up late and leaving late along the way, decided to make an exception to get up at 5:30 tomorrow morning and set off on time at 6:00.

 July 15 (Day 8)

        Overcoming the huge contrast of the biological clock, we set off on time at 6:00 in the morning. Roads were being built along the Jinsha River, and we passed the Jinsha River Bridge before 7:00, and finally entered Tibet! After that, I kept driving in the mountains, and soon arrived at the first public security checkpoint in Tibet, and queued for a long time... Arrived at Mangkang County [3875 meters] at noon, had a quick breakfast, and the supermarket next to it replenished a box of "Hundred Years Mountain" (500mlx24, 75 yuan), then move on. After crossing the Lao Mountain [4338 meters] and waiting for a few mountain passes, we reached the first 5,000-meter mountain pass ~ Dongda Mountain Pass [5008 meters]. After playing for a while, my daughter-in-law finally had a headache. The baby said that there is nothing to rush - I went to the oximeter to measure, one was 70% and the other was 68%. I quickly took out the oxygen tank prepared before the trip and took a couple of breaths, and I went down the mountain - I checked online: blood oxygen Less than 70% is relatively prone to dangerous situations.


       After crossing Dongda Mountain, it is not far from Zuogong [3877 meters], the first stop in Tibet. I chose a hotel opened by Tibetan compatriots: Zuogong Quxiu Niancang Hotel (333 yuan/night), probably located in Zuogong In the new district, the streets are clean, there are enough parking spaces in the backyard, and the surrounding area is also very convenient to eat and drink. I tasted yak hotpot that night.

July 16 (Day 9)

        For breakfast, there are buttered tea and steamed buns, and you can pick them up as needed, and there is only one egg (understandable, it is said that chickens on the plateau do not lay eggs). After the meal, Mr. K’s family took their “little master” out for a walk before they got up, and found that there was a fitness trail on the mountain behind, overlooking the Zuogong New District.

        Today, I have to pass the 72nd turn of the Nujiang River. On the way, I accidentally saw the sign of Tiantuo Temple [4000 meters], so I turned up and took a look. There are no people. This is one of the three major temples in Zuogong. , Golden Buddha is famous.

         On the next 72nd turn of the Nujiang River, the "mother-in-law and aunt" of the two families competed to drive, and the whole process went smoothly. That night, we settled down at the Yaotai Business Hotel (264 yuan/night) in Basu [3280 meters].

July 17 (Day 10)                  

        Wash the car at the hotel at noon (free facilities), and then set off. When I was in Zuogong, I heard that the road from Basu to Ranwu was cut off by a mudslide. Fortunately, it was repaired today.

        On the way, I overlooked Anjula Mountain [4325 meters], and when I arrived at Ranwu Lake [3850 meters], I encountered a traffic jam at the checkpoint, so I went to the south fork to Shangranwu. The road is not very good, but the scenery is better than later. The middle and lower Ranwu are much more beautiful. After four o'clock in the afternoon, I returned to the checkpoint and queued up. Today, I went through two public security checkpoints before finally arriving in Bomi.

        The Jiaheng Glacier Theme Hotel (305 yuan/night) in Bomi [2725 meters] can see the glacier when the weather is good, but the clouds did not clear until we checked out, so we couldn't see the glacier. However, the hotel is close to the river, and the tea room on the second floor has a full view of the river. In addition to parking in the courtyard, there is also a free parking lot next to it, and it is also close to the gas station, which is very convenient.

July 18 (Day 11)

         On the way to Nyingchi, we first pass through Zangwang Cave, and then arrive at the once natural danger and today’s thoroughfare——Tongmaite Bridge [2070 meters], where there is another landscape "two parallel rivers" ~ the intersection of Yigong Zangbo and Palong Zangbo place. But it happened that the poor monk's large intestine had violent peristalsis, so he went to the public toilet by the bridge to "commemorate" for a while. 

▲Bomi's morning

        Continue to Lulang, where there are many man-made landscape buildings, which I personally think are not very interesting; then we will go to Sejila Mountain [4559 meters], the viewing point of Namjagbarwa Peak. Unfortunately, it is raining again. Seeing nothing and it was rather cold, I stopped waiting and rushed down the mountain, throwing myself into the embrace of "Tibet Jiangnan". The plan was to take a rest in Linzhi [3100 meters], so I booked a pretty good homestay inn - Lin Zhiyi's Seclusion Holiday Yangxin Hotel (600 yuan/night, searched online, and directly added the price of the proprietress's WeChat). That night Tasted Motuo stone pot chicken.

July 19 (Day 12)

       On a lazy day, drinking tea, smoking, filling up the fuel tank and a series of eating and drinking in the courtyard of the inn...

       I booked pure tickets for the Potala Palace in advance (no group, no shopping), but failed to do so, and the tickets were basically monopolized by travel agencies.

July 20 (Day 13)

        Head to Lhasa. Before departure, I went to the Niyang River to test-fly the drone, but I didn't expect this to be its last performance, and then I bought a Motuo stone pot by the way.

        Linzhi to Lhasa can take the Linla Highway (in fact, it is an expressway that has not yet been charged), and Mira Mountain also passes through the tunnel, which is much shorter than continuing to take the 318 National Highway. Before arriving in the urban area, we turned a corner and went to Ganden Monastery, the ancestral temple of the "Gelug Sect". Unfortunately, the time was late and ticket sales were stopped. We only watched the exterior, but it was also very good.

        When passing through the Lhasa public security checkpoint, the drone I was carrying was sent home forcibly, just because our country's "big cat" came... I will stay in Lhasa [3650 meters] for three nights, and I chose a place far away from Potala A hotel that is not too far from the palace and the Jokhang Temple: Xi'an Hotel (Potala Palace Jokhang Temple Store, 541 yuan/night) Although parking in the courtyard is relatively tight, there are security guards who are responsible for parking and moving cars. Once the key is handed over, what to tell When using a car, the hotel is responsible for mobilizing the vehicle. There are complete restaurants and supermarkets around.

 July 21 (Day 14)

       I got up very late and walked to Barkhor Street and Jokhang Temple to visit; because I couldn’t book pure tickets for the Potala Palace online, and I didn’t want to participate in the all-day “shopping group” tickets of the travel agency, I went to the Potala Palace. I looked at the front square, Mr. K took pictures of the fashionable "mirror of the sky" for the women, and then went home. He picked a hot pot next to the hotel to eat, and there is actually a sushi restaurant. The Japanese food is from my house. My baby's favorite, so I packed it and went back to the room.

July 22 (Day 15)

        I was planning to go to Drepung Monastery, but when I was almost there, I found that the road was closed—the temple does not accept tourists today, because the "big cat" came, and today the Jokhang Temple, Barkhor Street, etc. are closed to thank visitors. The enthusiastic Tibetan sir told us that the Sera Monastery was still open, so he rushed over and invited a small tour guide to explain it (100 yuan) at the Sera Monastery, and also watched an academic activity of the lamas in the monastery - the debate.

all the way west

July 23 (Day 16)

        The plan is to go to Rituo Temple today, and then go to Gyantse for accommodation. On the way, we will visit Yamdrok Yongcuo [4440 meters]. I came out of the hotel around 11:00, and I found a gas station with a discount because I was greedy for cheap. After detours, I finished filling up just in time for "Big Cat" to leave Lhasa for Linzhi, and the traffic control delayed it for more than half an hour. . When crossing the Jiaruola Pass [4700 meters] on the way, I felt that the scenery was very beautiful and I played for an hour.

        It was already 16:30 when we arrived at Rituo Temple, so we decisively canceled the hotel booked in Gyantse. Rituo Temple is famous for "one monk, one temple, and one isolated island". Although there are now three lamas, it is still "the loneliest temple" in Yamdrok Yongcuo.

        Coming out of Rituo Temple, we took the county road along the lake and walked for 18 kilometers for 2 hours! Of course, you can also detour around the main road, but you can't enjoy the lake view up close. Gaode searched for an inn by the lake: Yanghu Tribe Family Hotel (315 yuan/night). It was nearly nine o'clock in the evening, but fortunately, I could still cook. Most of the dishes I ordered were meat dishes, because vegetables here were not cheaper than meat, and there was also canned highland barley wine.

 July 24 (Day 17)

        Continue driving along the lake, but today is a paved road. When I passed the Carola Glacier, I was almost fooled into buying a ticket because the glacier was on the side of the road. When I was approaching the glacier, a roadblock was set up in the middle of the road. Some people in uniform said they wanted to buy a ticket to pass. We said we couldn’t go to the glacier. Want to buy a ticket too? After repeated questioning, he had no choice but to let us go. In fact, they just want to be fooled by one another. The glacier is on the side of the road, and they can watch it without stopping. They want to make money but are helpless, so they come up with this inferior trick.

        I should have arrived in Gyantse yesterday, so I will not stay here today. Go to Baiju Temple, the Bodhi Pagoda (also known as: One Hundred Thousand Buddha Pagoda) has about four floors, which is worth seeing.

        Go to Shigatse [4000 meters] to stay in the evening, Super 8 Hotel (Jilin North Road, 212 yuan/night), located on the northeast edge of the city, it seems that there is a building materials street nearby, the surrounding restaurants and supermarkets are also convenient, and Tashilhunpo Monastery is also close Not too far, as long as the physical strength is not particularly poor, you can go there on foot.

 July 25 (Day 18)

        Wandering around the city, I found a Shaanxi-style restaurant for lunch: leek box with cold skin. Did not enter the Tashilhunpo Monastery, drank sweet tea outside the monastery, bought a Tibetan top hat for the baby...

 July 26 (Day 19)

        Leaving Shigatse, it was raining all the way, passing by the 5,000-kilometer monument on National Highway 318, and hurriedly took pictures, but this is not the real 5,000-kilometer place, so there is no need to stay long.

        Next, go down the road to Sakya County. There is a Sakya Temple in the county seat. As the name suggests, it is the ancestral temple of the Sakya Sect. The scripture wall "Huihai Jingshan" in it is really shocking! In fact, it should be "Sakya South Temple", and there were originally 108 Sakya North Temples, but very few of them exist now.

        Return to National Highway 318, after passing the real milestone of 5,000 kilometers, one after another took off to take "volley" photos to commemorate, and arrived at Tingri in the evening [4350 meters] Baiba Hotel (230 yuan/night) located on the side of the national highway for accommodation, the hotel There is only one floor as a whole, and the circle is a yard, so parking is not a problem. After leaving Shigatse, there is basically no need to consider parking spaces when choosing a hotel, because from then on to the west, the land is sparsely populated. Unfortunately, it happened that the chef of the hotel was on vacation, so I had to eat outside (eating a dumpling), and made an appointment with Eunuch K tomorrow to see the weather to decide whether to go to Mount Everest Base Camp.

July 27 (Day 20)

        Woke up at 9 o’clock in the morning, saw that it was cloudy, and decided to go to Mount Everest. In fact, the weather here can’t determine the weather at Mount Everest Base Camp. It doesn’t matter whether we can see Mount Everest, what matters is us Just being here is enough. There is a gas station on the way to fill up the gas.

        Due to the outbreak of the epidemic at Nanjing Airport, when entering the gate of the reserve, the safety and epidemic prevention inspections were much stricter, and it took more than 20 minutes to enter. After turning 108, arrive at the transfer station for eco-cars. After arriving at the base camp [5000 meters], the weather was cloudy and rainy, and the group hid in a tent, ordered a thermos of sweet tea and waited quietly, but they still couldn’t see the peak of Mount Everest, and the nearby Rongbuk Monastery was too lazy to go Yes—the most indispensable thing in Tibetan areas is temples.

        When I went down the mountain to wait in line for the eco-car, I had a quarrel with a group of middle-aged and elderly tour groups. These people called each other "teachers", one or two people "represented" the whole group of people. How can such a "teacher" teach and educate people who still use cameras and school bags to occupy seats in the back of the car and have no conscience at all? It can only be "destroying" people tirelessly! (Without regional discrimination, just telling the facts: the accents of the "teachers" seem to be people from Jiangsu and Zhejiang around Shanghai) At the same time, it shows that all of us have basically broken away from the high-resistance—places with an altitude of nearly 5,000 meters can still be compared with People quarrel, let alone him? At the same time, it also confirms another point. Some so-called "elderly people" who should be taken care of are limited to buses, subways and hospitals, and must not include scenic spots and supermarkets! Because he (she) can burst out amazing physical strength and potential at any time!

        It was evening after going down the mountain, so I went directly to a Northeast dumpling restaurant next to the hotel. Although the price was more expensive than the one I ate the night before, the quantity was large (17-18 per serving, while last night’s was only 12 per serving. ), the key is that it tastes better.

 July 28 (Day 21)

        The weather is fine today, let’s continue heading west! The travel team (including the self-driving group) who took the Qinghai-Tibet line has since turned back to Lhasa. We took the Ngari and Ngari North Lines. The real journey has just begun: a spiritual transcendence, walking into Tibet, the roof of the roof.

        On the way, we first saw Peikucuo, which was on the north side of National Highway 219, and we could already see it when we were still far away. However, Xishapangma Peak, which was on the south side of the national highway, began to hide in the clouds and could not be seen.

        Before entering Saga County [4600 meters], I also experienced a short queue at the public security checkpoint. Saga County is not big, but it has all kinds of food, drink and entertainment. It may be because most of the people who go to Ngari area stay here, which makes the development here The faction is thriving. We stayed at the Saga Xinji Hotel (265 yuan/night). Parking has to go downhill from the left hand side of the hotel to the backyard parking lot, and then climb up from the basement level at the back door to the second floor. It is still difficult to climb the stairs at high altitudes. Very powerful.

into ali

July 29 (Day 22)

        In the morning, I had breakfast at a bun shop opposite the hotel. The buns were pretty good. My son, who doesn’t usually eat buns, ate a drawer.

        When crossing the Assault La Mountain Pass [4920 meters], I met a young man who was riding alone. He said that he was in the third year of college, and he was afraid that he would run out of time after work. It was very admirable to ride the Ali Ring Road during the holidays.

        After passing through Zhongba County and entering the Ngari area, after several winds and rains on the way, we finally arrived at Taqin [4650 meters] in Pulan County at night. This is the best starting point for Gang Rinpoche. ) There is floor heating, and the two handsome guys at the front desk said: Don’t worry, take a bath in our hotel, you won’t catch a cold. The hotel room is large, there are plenty of parking spaces in the courtyard, and there are two or three restaurants at the door. The weather was fair that night, and the peak of Gang Rinpoche could be seen at the entrance of the hotel.

 July 30 (Day 23)

        I didn't intend to go to Gang Rinpoche, so I didn't buy a ticket to enter the scenic spot. According to the instructions at the front desk, I went back to the 219 from the hotel and drove a little in the direction of Zanda, and I arrived at a viewing spot under construction on the side of the road. , there are tents, and after the completion, you can drink sweet tea and watch the mountain view. If you don't want to go around the mountain, there is really no need to buy a ticket to enter the mountain. The scenery and angles of the mountain on the 219 National Highway are perfect. It's just that it was cloudy that day, and the top of Shenshan Mountain has not been fully revealed.

        After waiting for about an hour, I turned back to Manasarovar, the holy lake in Xiangli. There are also ropes around Mapang Yumcuo, and only tickets are allowed to enter the lake. However, in many places, one can step over the rope to enter, and you can also reach places very close to the lake. We just crossed the blockade with a few tourists. of.

        The next step is to go to Laangcuo, a ghost lake. There is no one blocking it. The four-wheel drive off-road can drive all the way to the lake, and even a red Audi sedan drove past. Personally, it seems that the ghost lake has a unique scenery, not worse than the holy lake. There are groups of gulls and birds to feed by the lake. Looking south is the "Goddess" Namunani Peak.

July 31 (Day 24)

        After checking out in the morning, I went for another round in Taqin Town as a farewell. On the way to Zanda, look to the right of the road, and you can see Gang Rinpoche for a long time. On the way, we went to Gurujiang Temple. The road condition is very good. This temple is the only existing Bon religion temple in Ngari area, and part of it is built on the mountain. Afterwards, return to National Highway 219, find a teahouse to drink sweet tea, rest for a while and move on.

        After going through the changes of "ten miles and four seasons", when I crossed the mountain pass, it seemed that it had just snowed and hadn't melted yet. Gradually, soil and forest landforms can be seen one after another. We crossed the Xiangquan River (also known as Langqin Zangbo) and entered Zanda County under the setting sun...

        Stay in Zanda [3700 meters] for three nights, one is to go to the Guge Kingdom, and the other is to adjust and rest. After all, this is the lowest altitude foothold in the Ngari area since leaving Shigatse. The Zanda Guge Hotel (329 yuan/night) booked is the reception hotel of the local government department. It often has to reserve some vacant rooms to receive government officials, so sometimes it does not receive tourists when there are rooms. When we checked in, the front desk politely asked if we had brought a drone, and I replied with infinite sadness: There was a DJI drone in front of us, but we didn't cherish it (the drone didn't enter Lhasa before was forced to post home)... and what echoed in my mind was the poem of the French symbolist poet Paul Verlaine: "The monotonous depression hurts my heart..."

August 1 (Day 25)

        At noon, we arrived at the ruins of the Guge Kingdom, which is only 18 kilometers away from Zanda County. We bought four adult tickets, and our eldest child who was 15 years old was honored to be exempted from the ticket. Unfortunately, the Red Hall and the White Hall are under maintenance and closed, but in the up and down wandering and climbing, it is still not hindered to listen to the distant footsteps of that era, feel the long-lost pulse of the kingdom, and the long-sealed prosperity Glory...

        I wanted to eat dumplings for dinner, and I found a "Northeast Dumpling" on the Internet, but I was very disappointed. Looking back later, everyone agreed that this was the most unpalatable dumpling during this trip. There was no one, and no refutation was accepted.

 August 2 (Day 26)

        In the morning, I went alone to the "Jingling Xiaolongbao", which was well-reviewed on a certain review, and it was easy to eat, so I packed it for Mr. K and my baby, and it was well received.

        Originally, I was going to visit the National Soil Forest Park today. I followed the navigation, but there was no sign of the park. It was just a road. Sometimes I want to take a look at it, because the Dharma body of the great translator Rinchen Sangbu is enshrined here. The monastery does not accept tickets for locals (most temples in Tibetan areas are free for locals), but tourists need to pay in cash to buy tickets. Unfortunately, they didn’t bring that much with them. They sighed: Poor monks have nothing to do with this temple! Moreover, this temple was rebuilt in another place, so it doesn't matter if you don't look at it.

 August 3 (Day 27)

        Leave Zanda and go to Shiquan River. According to the instructions of the police officer at the checkpoint when I came here, I asked the girl at the gas station and took the 701 county road. This is a path that will not appear on the GD navigation. It seems that the road has not been open to traffic for a long time. I just navigated to the national land yesterday. Road in the Forest Geopark. According to the road signs, turn left to leave the county road and go to the Wucai soil forest in Xiayigou. It is indeed worth seeing. After entering the ditch, there are all dirt roads similar to dry rivers, and it is slightly easier to drive an SUV.

        Go back to County Road 701 on the original road, and then turn right after driving a short distance to the north. The road sign guides you to the Donggapiyang site, which is another site of the Guge Kingdom, but there are fewer tourists than the Guge Kingdom. A teahouse at the foot of the mountain bought a ticket for 50 yuan per person, and the baby was exempted from the ticket. Fortunately this time, the uncle who took care of the murals took us into the cave to watch the murals. We didn’t have any suitable gifts, so we had to leave a box of “Nanjing Twelve Hairpins” for the old man to express our affection. After going down the mountain, I drank some sweet tea at the teahouse where I bought the ticket. I met a Tibetan driver who specialized in traveling and chartered cars. During the chat, he introduced us to the Skull Wall and Sap Glacier, so we adjusted the route planning accordingly. Ready to check it out later.

         Leaving Dongga Piyang, we crossed two Daban with an altitude of more than 5,200 meters, and finally returned to National Highway 219, all the way straight to Shiquan River. It was nearly eight o'clock when we entered Shiquan River [4280 meters], and the checkpoint delayed a lot of time. An ambulance took a team of convoys entering Shiquan River to a designated hospital, scanning codes, measuring body temperature, After signing the letter of commitment and a series of procedures, I went to the booked Gar Tianshang Business Hotel (252 yuan/night). The hotel is on the second floor and there is no elevator. When we were in the parking lot at the entrance, the big dog of the hotel greeted us warmly for the first time, and at the same time "coaxed" us to eat some food...

 August 4 (Day 28)

        It’s been a long time since I’ve been out, and I’ve gotten a little angry, and my teeth hurt when I eat. Mr. K’s mother-in-law recommended metronidazole, which is cheap and effective. I’m afraid I won’t be able to buy it when I return to Beijing (because the medicine is very cheap), so I set off Before going to Pangong Lake, I found a pharmacy on the side of the road, 12 yuan a box (100 tablets), bought two boxes at once, and prepared more, so I can use it for self-driving trips in the future.

        It is not too far from Shiquan River to Pangong Lake, but the speed limit along the way is 60 kilometers, which is really TNND. Although Bangong Lake is the border lake between China and India, it is still 180 kilometers away from India. After all, there are very few tourists in the western border of China, and some of them come from Xinjiang. Bangong Lake is the westernmost turning point of our trip, and we will start the return route from then on.

        On the same day, I still return to Shiquanhe, because the next stop is to change the rules. If you live in Ritu County, which is close to Bangong Lake, the next day's itinerary will be more difficult. The altitude of Ali North Line (317 National Highway) is basically 4400 meters. As mentioned above, one of the most important points to prevent high reactions is to have a good rest and avoid driving for too long a distance.

One "measure" and another "measure"

August 5 (Day 29)

        I officially embarked on National Highway 317 on the Ngari North Line. Recalling that when I first entered Tibet on 318, it was a world of difference: I didn’t see any cars along the way, and although the altitude was high, the road was relatively flat. I started to experience the rush of "adding mistakes to mistakes": first, I saw a blue and white lake not far from the roadside, which was not marked on the GD. I checked it on the BD map and found out that it was called "Nie Ercuo". This is the first time I saw the salt lake on this trip. I was very excited and left angrily after playing for a long time.

Afterwards, they passed by Biereyongcuo and Wumacuo successively. Among them, Wumacuo under the setting sun is the most beautiful. The lake is blue in color and looks like a fake.

        Arrive at Gaize [4430 meters] in the evening, check into Gaize Ziruisheng Hotel (214 yuan/night), located on the south side of the town, there is a gas station about one kilometer east of the hotel. Like a logistics company, there is a shared hall like a glass greenhouse, where guests can chat and drink tea, and breakfast can also be served in the hall.

August 6 (Day 30)

        Since we entered Tibet for the first time and entered the remote Ngari region, we did not dare to imagine taking the central line of Ngari, but Zari Nanmucuo is hard to give up, so we still plan to get off 317 halfway and go south to take measures Qin County.

        Today, I passed Dongcuo first, which is also a salt lake. I don’t know if it’s because of the light of the day, but the mountains stretching all the way to Dongcuo look like "A Thousand Miles of Rivers and Mountains", but the mobile phone can’t take pictures. . The women tried several times to approach the wild donkey by the lake, but failed.

▲Salt Lake Caves

        When we just got off 317 and headed south, there were dozens of kilometers of washboard roads, so that we wondered if we were going the wrong way, but the navigation clearly guided it like this. There are almost no other vehicles except us. Perhaps it is because of the quietness that we can see a lot of Tibetan antelopes and Tibetan wild donkeys... After about an hour of bumps, I finally got on the asphalt road, bypassing Xiagangjiang Snow Mountain and a bird What kind of "measures" on the island is at Cuoqin County [4660 meters].

▲The three happy little brothers

        Cuoqin County looks like it has just been renovated. The houses are not high but most of them are quite new. Staying at Cuoqin Plateau Impression Hotel (274 yuan/night) is also on the second floor, and you have to climb upstairs, but everyone seems to have gotten used to it. The boss said that there are only a dozen hotels in the entire county. Due to the outbreak of the epidemic this year, a large number of travel agencies canceled their reservations, so we can still book a hotel on the same day. Blessed.

 August 7 (Day 31)

        According to the hotel owner’s instructions, we didn’t go to the ticket-selling scenic spot in Zarinanmucuo (I heard that it costs 120 yuan a piece), but went south. We occasionally saw groundhogs along the way, and it took about 40 minutes to get there. There is a place called Cuoqin Village. This village is located by Zarinan Mucuo Lake. No tickets are required. You can drive directly to the lake. The free scenery is also not inferior.

        Also according to the hotel owner's instructions, the return trip to Dangreyongcuo did not take the national highway, but took the 205 provincial highway. According to him, there are only about 40 kilometers of dirt roads, but in fact we walked about 100 kilometers of bumpy dirt roads. Time It is estimated that there is not much savings at all, but there are many wild animals along the way. I have seen Tibetan antelopes and marmots countless times. Just when everyone was jolted to the point of collapse, they finally turned onto the paved asphalt road—it was just a county road! The mood at that time was the same as that of the boss lying on the village head waiting for the "big run" in "Party A and Party B".

        Soon after walking on the asphalt road, I saw Tangreyongcuo, the holy lake of Bon religion, and Daguo Snow Mountain (also known as "Darguo"). The scenery is seen near the evening, but you can see the extraordinary beauty...

        I was going to spend the night in Nima County at night, and when I passed the fork in Wenbunan Village, I encountered an epidemic prevention inspection. They told us that they might have to check the nucleic acid certificate before entering Nima County. I came to the outside of Nima County full of anxiety. It happened that there was a jeep convoy with a Beijing license plate in front of me. It seemed that they were holding some kind of list, maybe it was a nucleic acid certificate. Since we had entered Tibet for almost a month, we didn’t ask for it along the way. We do nucleic acid tests, so at this time there is nothing except a green code for a 14-day itinerary in Tibetan areas. However, the police uncle didn’t check us in particular, and just followed the Beijing convoy in front of us into Nima in such a daze. I really want to thank those unknown Beijing brothers!

        After nearly 100 kilometers of "spiritual torture" and "physical torture" on National Highway 205, everyone decided to stop at Nima [4550 meters] for a day and take care of the vehicle. After all, we have driven more than 7600 kilometers from Beijing to this place. Still have to pay attention. Accommodation hotel: Nima County Hotel (410 yuan/night), which seems to be the main hotel received by the government. There are many soldiers in camouflage. Parking is available at the entrance and in the backyard. There are several restaurants and a restaurant downstairs. Big supermarkets, food has also made some supplements.

 August 8 (Day 32)

        I rested all day and woke up at noon. I used the GD map to check a nearby auto repair shop. It was very close to the hotel. The auto repair here is a small yard without too much equipment, and the basic maintenance is enough. I changed the oil and checked the brakes. (The eHi company that rented the car has a prescribed reimbursement amount), and then I found a shop to wash the car. I have to say that the washing was really careful.

        The rest of the time was spent on eating and simply wandering around, while the women of various families changed into Tibetan-style aprons from nowhere... I originally wanted to go to Bangor next stop, and then to the Holy Elephant Tianmen. But the situation is very similar to that of the Potala Palace. Pure tickets cannot be booked at all. They are all package tickets with board and lodging. According to netizens, the accommodation is extremely bad, the meals are not good, and the one-way trip takes nearly 3 hours. The "Washboard Road" in the city has just experienced the ruthless destruction of the 100-kilometer provincial highway 205, and has become a little numb to "measures", so I decided to give up-tomorrow I will make a long-distance raid to Nagqu.

 August 9 (Day 33)

        Today, we have passed through many "wrongs" such as Dazecuo, Qiaguicuo, Selincuo, Cuo'e, Bamcuo, and Pongcuo. Among them, Selincuo is the largest lake in Tibet. is constantly expanding. I didn't look for the entrance of the "scenic spot" on purpose. I walked all the way, as if I didn't buy tickets for all the "measures" I've seen—it's true that I don't need to go to the so-called scenic spot, because as long as you can pass it, the scenery is just like the "main". Will come to you at any time (New Testament · Mark 13:35).

        It was nearly nine o'clock in the evening before arriving at the Tibetan Tianxiang Hotel (322 yuan/night) in Naqu [4600 meters]. There are restaurants on the first and second floors of the hotel, and the hot pot was eaten on the first floor for dinner that night.

August 10 (Day 34)

        Rest at the same place, a Sichuan restaurant near lunch solved it, and next to the restaurant is a yogurt shop called "Gongsangtajie". I bought a large bucket of yogurt and returned to the hotel. The liquid has been useless, just mixed with yogurt to eat.

Dream back to Ding Qing

August 11 (Day 35)

        After leaving Nagqu, according to the instructions of the Tibetan elder brother I met in Donggapiyang, leave National Highway 317 and take National Highway 558 to Ru County. Before arriving at the county seat, I went to the famous Dam Temple Skull Wall. Although it was damaged during the Cultural Revolution, it seems that it has been restored and repaired to some extent. When I entered the main hall of Damu Monastery, I saw the epidemic registration book in Tibetan for the first time.

        Across the river is Redan Temple, which also has a skull wall. It is a bit late, and I have not crossed the river to see it.

        The next stop is the first turn of the Nujiang River - Chaqu Nujiang Great Bend, which is much more primitive than the Nujiang Great Bend in Yunnan. A viewing platform is being built, but it is not yet completed. Go up and watch for a while before driving away.

        For example, the county [3910 meters] is building roads everywhere, and as soon as we parked on the side of the hotel road, the police car came to drive us away: parking on the roadside is prohibited. Fortunately, for example, there are special reserved parking spaces in the backyard of Naxiu Hotel (250 yuan/night), and there are people to direct and guide. For example, there is no hotel with a good price/performance ratio, so this hotel can only be regarded as a good place to live. We have been in the Tibetan area, so we have not done nucleic acid testing. For this reason, the front desk also called the public security department to apply, and we only checked in after we were approved.

August 12 (Day 36)

        To go to Sapu Mountain (glacier), you have to go out of Ruru County to the south, and you have to cross the Shala Pass at an altitude of 5072 meters. The first 7 or 80 kilometers are still paved roads.

After passing the ticket gate of the scenic spot, the road is almost full of "shell craters", and you have to wade through the water several times. The few smooth roads are on a few small iron bridges. After arriving at the outer lake, you have to drive on a narrow road halfway up the mountain to reach the inner lake at the foot of Sapu Mountain. This section of the road is very narrow, and it is difficult to meet cars in several places.

        After entering the scenic spot, I walked for nearly 2 hours on the 18-kilometer road, and it was already 4 o'clock in the afternoon when I arrived at the foot of Shenshan Mountain, so I decided to stay overnight in the lakeside inn, and it might be impossible to return to Suo County as originally planned. Sacuo Tourist Hotel (100/person·night) [4700 meters], children do not need to occupy the bed and do not charge money, but for the sake of comfort, they paid 100 more for the baby and asked for a bunk. The ticket for the scenic spot is 150 for adults, and the baby will confiscate the money.

        A picnic table is set up in front of the inn, and you can drink sweet tea while looking at the holy mountain. Go up a small hill 100 meters ahead of the inn, and you can see the inner lake and the unmelted ice floes in the lake. The gophers and hares that can be seen everywhere can be photographed at close range, as well as the yaks that file down from the mountains and return late. I heard from the owner of the store that there were bears coming down the mountain to look for food the night before, because a girl was frightened and screamed in the car, which stimulated the bear, the big bear, and the two, who smashed the car windows and tore up the tent. So when I bought a ticket to enter the mountain today, the staff told me not to set up a tent or stay in the car.

 August 13 (Day 37)

        The evening before was a bit gloomy, but the weather turned better early this morning, and the beauty of Sapu was fully displayed. It is worthwhile to come to Sapu after all the hardships, as the saying goes: the mountain is better when the feet are exhausted. Crackling and clapping, we left in a hurry near noon—I was afraid that the car to Sap would arrive later, and meeting the car on the narrow mountainside was probably something neither of us wanted to see.

▲Sapp's family

▲Sapu Mountain

        Turning back to Ruo County on the same road, I found Jiazang Teahouse to take a rest, ordered sweet tea, oil cakes and other food, and set off for Suo County after eating. GD navigation will return the road from 558 back to National Highway 317. The locals pointed out that there is a dirt road that can be directly copied back to 317. This route can only be displayed by using cycling navigation. On the way, we crossed Kangqingla Mountain (also known as "Kangchenla") at an altitude of 5,300 meters. It is so easy to pass this altitude now!

        On the way down the mountain, Mr. K’s car suddenly turned off and couldn’t start. A Tibetan elder brother who drove by enthusiastically stopped to help us for a long time, but it still didn’t work. He told us that the nearest auto repair shop is more than 30 Kilometers, so I had to go down the mountain to find an auto mechanic first to see if I could go up the mountain to repair the car. ~ What I want to say is that Tibetans are really simple and enthusiastic. This is not an isolated case, but a common phenomenon. Fortunately, we had just arrived at the public security checkpoint at the foot of the mountain. Mr. K on the mountain called and said that he had fiddled with the car under the guidance of a friend and was slowly driving down. Om Mani Padme Hum, Buddha bless you!

        It was already dark, and after waiting for Mr. K, he didn’t even dare to let him stop the car. He turned on the double flashing lights and marched to Suo County [4000 meters] in a team... After many twists and turns, he finally arrived at Suoxiu, which he had just booked on the road. Xueyu Hotel (221 yuan/night), when you drive into the courtyard, there are only two parking spaces left. Turn off the engine, check in, eat, and sleep. Decided to stay here for a day tomorrow and let Mr. K repair the car.

 August 14 (Day 38)

        I got up at 9 o'clock, drove Mr. K to the auto repair shop, and asked the master to drive the car away.

        I found a Sichuan restaurant for lunch, and cut my hair after dinner (35 yuan). The famous Zandan Monastery in Suo County is a bit like shrinking the Potala Palace. I was tired because of the car last night, so I looked at it from a distance. After a while, I didn't even take a picture. Searching through the USB flash drive, there is only one Suo County People's Court taken on the street...

        I am about to leave the Tibetan area. I went to a small shop at night and bought some Tibetan incense. I finally found a food stall in Jiaguangwei. I'm sick of it.

 August 15 (Day 39)

        Leaving Suo County, the next stop is Dingqing, and Dingqing Zizhu Temple is actually the most original destination of this trip. As early as when my baby was in the womb, the baby’s mother happened to meet the abbot of Zizhu Temple, Ding Zhenerse Living Buddha, in Beijing’s Sansheng Nunnery. the point.

         The scenery on the road is very different from the 317 of the Ali North Line. There are yellow and green fields scattered on the hillside, and the air is much more humid. The road is also much better than what previous travelers described. It seems that it has been repaired in recent years. The road is smooth and goes straight to the Dingqing Cordyceps Hotel (275 yuan/night). There is a parking lot in front of the door, and it is right next to the hotel. A hot pot city in the hotel will handle the dinner, and the County Public Security Bureau is on the left side of the hotel. Another: There is a bun shop across the road from the hotel, and the buns are also delicious. Dingqing County [3850 meters] should have stopped for one more night, but due to vehicle maintenance in Suo County, it was decided not to stay longer, and went directly to Zizhu Temple tomorrow.

August 16 (Day 40)

        Not too far from Dingqing, you will reach the intersection to Zizhu Temple, turn right and walk for a while, then turn left, and you will start the famous forty "elbow bends". It takes more than an hour from Dingqing to the top of Zizhu Mountain That's it. Zizhu Temple [4800 meters] is a Yongzhong Bon religion temple with a history of 3,000 years. It is backed by the six peaks of Zizhu Mountain, which symbolizes the salvation of all sentient beings, and the scenery is also unique. The main hall is being repaired. A monk accompanied us into the interior and offered butter lamps to Dunba Xinrao Buddha (you can scan the QR code on WeChat). When asked if Ding Zhen Living Buddha is there, the monk said that he is not in the temple at the moment. He thinks he is still compiling " The Tripitaka of Bon Religion.

▲Zizhu Temple

        The original plan was to return to Beijing via Qamdo, Dege, Ganzi, Qamdo Monastery, Malkang, and Chengdu. However, the epidemic has already occurred in Sichuan. According to various sources, anyone who passes through a province with an epidemic and whose itinerary code contains * will not be allowed. into Beijing. So I decided to change my way to go to Leiwuqi to go out of Tibet and enter Qinghai. On the way to Leiwuqi, I accidentally saw the Quyama Temple and the 800-year-old Kamado Tallinn. A junior high school student who just entered Nyingchi Middle School The freshman enthusiastically gave us a voluntary explanation, which made us feel the enthusiasm and simplicity of the Tibetans again. 

        When we arrived at the hotel booked in Leiwuqi [3800 meters] that night, because we did not have a nucleic acid certificate, the store called the police station to ask for instructions, but no one answered the police station, so they dared not let us check in rashly. When I was planning my itinerary, I was looking for 2-3 hotels for each place to stay. I went to the optional Joy Hotel (260 yuan/night) 300 meters away and asked if there was no problem. I checked in immediately. There is Sichuan cuisine across the road downstairs. The restaurant handles dinner.


August 17 (Day 41)

        The morning in Leiwuqi was still very quiet. I ate breakfast alone at the dining place last night. The rest of the people did not get up and packed dumplings (quick-frozen) for my baby.

        I'm going out of Tibet today, and somehow I have a weird feeling in my heart. I feel that something is wrong anyway. Could it be that I was really poisoned? Because everyone who has been to Tibet will say - Tibet is poisonous! Indeed, there is a kind of deep rush, from the depths of the body, twists and turns, and surges up along the gastrointestinal esophagus ~ "uh" - a sigh that seems to be a hiccup but not a hiccup...

        After leaving Tibet, I entered the [3700m] area of ​​Yushu, Qinghai from the Dizha checkpoint. You can often see murals on the mountain walls along the way, but judging from the colorfulness, they should be relatively new.

       Stay in Yushu Qinggan Hotel (364 yuan/night), there is a parking lot in the backyard, you need to log in to "Healthy Qinghai" and scan the code to register.

August 18 (Day 42)

        Visit the famous Ganamani stone pile, vehicles are not allowed to drive in, and there is a parking lot on the side of the road. This is the largest Mani stone pile in the world. It is estimated that there are about 2.5 billion pieces, and many believers are turning the stone pile. There are also individual women who secretly instigate children to invite tourists to ask for change, which has never been encountered in Tibet. It seems that the people here are not as simple and innocent as the people deep in Tibet.

        When I came back, I passed by Jiegu Temple and took a look again. It was not open because of the epidemic. Jiegu Temple was formerly the Nangqiong Temple of the Bon religion temple, and later built the Dajie Temple of the Nyingma Sect on its basis. Finally, it was changed into a Sakya Sect monastery by the 20th Dharma King of the Sakya Sect.

        After leaving Jiegu Temple, we went to King Gesar Square to drink coffee and chat. We didn’t return to the hotel until it was dark and raining.

August 19 (Day 43)

        Today is the birthday of the poor monk. It took more than 11 hours to drive to Xining [2260 meters]. After leaving the Tibetan area, there were not many scenery enough to attract me. I was afraid of encountering an epidemic on the road, so I accelerated the process. The expressway between Yushu and Xining was damaged by the earthquake in Maduo County last year. The Yematan Bridge has not yet been repaired. However, the 214 National Highway is also smooth, and you can get on the expressway after passing through Maduo County. But in hindsight, you should continue to take National Highway 214, which is not slower than the high speed. Not only do you have to pay high-speed tolls, but you also have to stop and rest to waste time because there are always interval speed measurements.

        After passing the Gonghe toll booth, I didn’t encounter inspections all the way, and went straight to the hotel: Xining Haiyue Hotel (172 yuan/night), the parking space is relatively tight, because the hotel has clubs and other entertainment venues, especially in the first half of the night. The halal Ga Musa food next to the hotel is not bad. It only opened in the evening, but it opened until four or five in the morning. It is estimated that it is specially for nightlife guests.

 August 20 (Day 44)

        rest. I have been to Xining before, so the two went shopping in the commercial street. For the beef noodles we ate, we bought a type-c charging cable to replace the one in the car that was already in poor contact. Mr. K specially bought a bunch of cakes and went back to the hotel to make up for my birthday yesterday. Tomorrow we will divide our troops into two groups: Mr. K will go to Shapotou, Zhongwei, Ningxia; we have been there twice, so we will go to Qingyang, Gansu.

August 21 (Day 45)

        The distance from Xining to Qingyang is nearly 700 kilometers, and it takes about 8 or 9 hours to drive, so I broke the convention and set off at 9:30.

        I kept going in and out of the tunnel all day, and finally arrived in Qingyang. The heavy rainfall mentioned in the weather forecast came as scheduled, and the road was heavily flooded. rubbing against the fence...

        In Qingyang [1400 meters], I chose a hotel on the commercial street: Qingyang Meilun Landis Hotel (184 yuan/night), parking in the courtyard, belonging to the parking space of the commercial building, not ample but basically there are parking spaces, pay attention The point is: the hotel only gives one parking coupon per day, but the surrounding restaurants and businesses are complete and can be reached on foot.

August 22 (Day 46)

        I will stay in Qingyang for three nights, waiting for Mr. K to rush back from Zhongwei. In addition to wandering around, I ate the buffet lunch "Noodle Belly", and went to the North Grotto Temple not far from the city. Its history can be traced back to the Northern Wei Dynasty. It is under renovation and only a few caves can be seen. Among them, Cave 165 is the most representative. It was excavated during the Northern Wei Dynasty. It was not allowed to take pictures. I was reluctant to miss it and took a few photos secretly.

August 23 (Day 47)

        Buying Qingyang specialty ~ sachets, I bought several "donkeys", and I have to bring something as a souvenir when I go out.

August 24 (Day 48)

        In view of the restrictions of the epidemic prevention and control policies in Shaanxi and Shanxi, today we will cross the two provinces and enter Hebei to join the good Xingtai of the K Convention. It was another 11-hour journey, and the two of them drove alternately. It was not too tiring. I stayed at the Yabin Business Hotel in Xingtai (Kaiyuan Temple Park Store 143 yuan/night). Parking is available in front of the building and in the basement. It's a food stall. After eating a "breakup meal", they will go to Beijing tomorrow and go home separately.

August 25 (Day 49)

        After a late sleep, the distance to Beijing is only 400 kilometers. There should be no place to delay time except for the checkpoint in Beijing. Besides, it doesn’t matter how late you go home. The last leg of the trip started at 11 o’clock. The Baoding service area ate donkey fire. It was originally planned to eat in Baoding and pack some "Bai Yunzhang" beef and mutton stuffing, but the epidemic restrictions did not allow it... It did take some time to go to Beijing for inspection, but the inspection content was surprisingly simple , I only looked at the ID card, and didn't even check the itinerary code. It is reasonable to think about it carefully. There are layers of checkpoints along the way, no matter what problems there are, you can't get here.

        Arrive at the basement at home at 17:00, unload the car, wash the car, refuel, return the car...



The self-driving trip lasted a total of 49 days and nearly 12,500 kilometers. So far, the mileage has been safe and complete!

I kneel here to thank the Buddha and Bodhisattvas of all parties for their holiness, the high spirits have fallen, and the blessings of heaven have blessed me, and I am safe! Swastika Om Maji Moyesaled Swastika

       After several months back, I just started to record this self-driving trip. Every time I think of the details and scenes, my heart will be full of turmoil, which lasts for a long time. I often had a feast with Mr. K, who was in the same company, and talked about the feelings and shortcomings of this trip. I also paid more attention to the content about Tibet in a certain voice and a certain hand. In the future, I will be able to re-enter the holy land and reshape my new life - Tibet, I will probably go again...

                                                                                       —— 2021-12-15 At home in Beijing



Deepest experience:

1. High reflexes can be prevented: avoid long-distance raids, get enough sleep, and avoid rush-style itineraries (I don’t want to belittle group tours, but even if it’s a self-driving group tour, the schedule of rush-style work and rest is certain and cannot be guaranteed. Adequate sleep and rest); the initial itinerary should be slow, and gradually increase the altitude of the accommodation to give the body time to adapt. In addition, you should prepare some "Rhodiola" and "Glucose" with mixed reviews. Everyone's reaction is different, but it is certain that at least there is no harm. The effect of psychological placebo must be there, even if it is a psychological suggestion. Its role is also quite effective.

2. Tickets for scenic spots do not have to be purchased. Many scenic spots are precisely what you can see from a distance but not when you see them close up. Moreover, no one can build a wall to enclose them. In addition, online ticket bookings are often package tickets with shopping, board and lodging, which are bundled sales, but pure tickets are often not available online, so think carefully before booking to avoid regret and cursing.

3. If time and financial resources do not allow it, it is strongly recommended to go to the Ngari area and the Ngari North Line, and only take 318 to Lhasa or Shigatse, the base camp of Mount Everest, far from experiencing the real Tibet, Ngari and its northern line Without the heavy traffic and traffic jams on the 318, there will not be a few grandparents popping up out of nowhere in the scenery you are happily shooting.
