in every donkey’s heart
Everyone has a turbulent self-driving dream
crazy and cool
On the boundless green grassland
or in the lonely desert
Gallop all the way, harvest all the way, be free all the way
Grasslands, deserts, lakes, snow mountains, forests, canyons
The charming scenery spreads out without reservation
Undoubtedly the best way to experience the world
full of luggage
The gain is experience
Less crowded attractions
Just to see the scenery that others can’t see along the way
In July and August, China is so beautiful
go without thinking
Whether you want to see flowers or the sea
Whether you love the wildness of the prairie
I still like Chanjuan from Jiangnan
These 8 magnificent, beautiful and leisure self-driving routes
There is always one that makes your heart beat
1. Tibet Ngari Ring Road – Road to Paradise
If there is a heaven on earth, it must be Ali!

Here, there are many mountains and snow-capped mountains, and the Himalayas and Gangdise Mountains gather here. It is called the ancestor of thousands of mountains.
There are many rivers and lakes here.
It is the birthplace of the Yarlung Zangbo River, the Indus River and the Ganges River, also known as “the source of all rivers”.
