After the first village, there is no trace of people anymore, only wild yaks, Tibetan wild donkeys, Tibetan antelopes, wild foxes, and various birds.
It seems that the water is quite large during the rainy season, and the bridge has been washed away.
The car is hot, stop and check.
The boot cover dissipates heat, and it is found that the protective cover of the wiring harness is aged at high temperature.
Glue it with black tape and re-fix it with the cable tie.
The sloping ice surface is a test of courage. If it slips down, it will be very difficult to get up.
This line with only slight ruts is actually known as the Huolong Highway, which is the road from Huoerba Township to Longgar Township.
There are no obvious signs on the road, only road markers scattered every other section of the road. If you don’t look at the track, it’s easy to go wrong.
The road along the road is beautiful, with few traces of human activities, only traces of a few nomadic herdsmen. The distant mountains are towering and covered with snow. The road is sometimes full of rocks and walk carefully. Occasionally, I can meet a river, which is crystal clear and there are no traces of fish.
Monument No. 65, that is, it has only traveled 65 kilometers from the road down the road today, which shows how difficult the road is.

Today, Suzi cloth is on the wrong side.
The Jimny stopped on the only flat spot among the rubble.
231 kilometers driven today
It was the first time to camp at an altitude of 5242.
The two wild yaks by the lake are looking at you from a distance. They are huge. It is said that if they feel threatened, they will attack. My little Jimny will be overwhelmed.
On the frozen lake, the temperature difference between day and night is huge, and there is a crackling sound from time to time. If you are not brave enough, you will be frightened.
The sun didn’t shine on the lake in the early morning.
Chicks in the lake looking at the shore.
The ice surface seems to be frozen in the undulating state, and the focus of the selfie is out of focus.
I woke up before the morning sun shone into the car. The temperature last night was really low, maybe more than ten degrees below zero, so cold that I didn’t want to look at the thermometer. The body is not cold, but the cold air is very dry, the nose, throat and lips seem to be dry and cracked, struggling to drink some hot water, and so on.
Gradually, I have adapted to such road conditions. I changed the BFGoodrich KO2 before departure, and walked in the field full of sharp rocks, without worrying about cutting or anything.
The Tibetan wild donkeys run as soon as they see people, and have not encountered the situation of Tibetan wild donkeys and off-road vehicles raced in many posts in no-man’s land.
Free-running Tibetan gazelle and Tibetan antelope
Groups of Tibetan wild donkeys running are also quite spectacular.
This is the second time I saw a wolf beside Mapang Yumco. The running speed was quite fast, and after a while, I was far away and disappeared.
Seeing such a familiar scene of car trapping, I can’t help feeling that it is not easy for the seniors who left their footprints. Before the permafrost is frozen, it must be super difficult.
Unfortunately, I encountered fried chicken. When I was controlling the aircraft to fly back, a large circle of Tibetan antelopes ran past my eyes. The beautiful scene made me forget that I was still operating the drone, and the aircraft directly hit the ground. The chicken and the experience of successfully recovering it, quickly recovered the poor machine with broken blades hundreds of meters away.
Walking on such an ice surface, the bumps are much smaller.
If the temperature is high, you can only stop the car and use the water on the car to pour the cooling water tank. Modifying 1.8 is harmful, and the stability is worrying.
