It’s been a year since my trip to Tibet, and my third brother asked me to post. I’m lazy, so I only think of tidying up now .
Tibet has always been a place of fascination. As a car enthusiast, it is a long-cherished wish to drive your beloved car to measure the world. It is said that if you are tired of the life in front of you, take a trip.
In May of this year, I quit my 12-year job, tired of the day-to-day life, and decided to change my life. In this way, on June 2, 2018, I started my self-driving trip to Tibet.
This time we plan to go as far as Mount Kailash in the Ngari region in the far west of Tibet. The one-way journey has exceeded 5,000 kilometers, so preparations before departure are necessary.
Tire hubs, jacks, tow ropes, air pumps, etc. are all carried, and the advantages of the pickup truck are displayed at this time. I have never changed tires on such a big car, so I should practice before leaving, otherwise changing this thing at high altitude is not a joke.
Spare tire, tow rope, air pump, tire repair tool, Master Teng even bought a new large jack for me.
My mother was worried about my son traveling thousands of miles. Before leaving, my mother fried peanuts and fried salted fish to take with me. In fact, she didn’t want me to run so far in her heart. The wife bought pancakes, fruits, and medicine, and set off with full family affection.
My elder brother made a special trip from out of town to accompany me to drive the car to Chengdu
On the morning of June 2, set off with the rising sun, and take a photo of the customary logo before the journey
This long-distance travel car has a displacement of 5,700 in 2011, 10,000 kilometers round trip, and 10,000 fuel costs. The fuel consumption is relatively ideal. The power on the plateau will be much weaker, but it will also save fuel.
I gathered in Chengdu with my friends on the 4th, and departed on the 2nd. I have more time to arrive in Chengdu in three days. I walk and play, and I go down for a walk if I have a good view. The first stop is Songshan Shaolin Temple. Take it with me.
On the first day of entering Tibet, we made an agreement that if we don’t shave, the face will gradually change later.
On the 3rd, set off from Songshan to Xi’an, passing through the Sanmenxia Dam and the Shaanzhou Dikengyuan along the way.
It started in 1957 and took four years to complete, which was a great feat in that era
Dikengyuan, an underground quadrangle courtyard in the north, is warm in winter and cool in summer.

On the 4th, Xi’an-Chengdu, pure rush, across the Qinling Mountains
Settling in, it’s still early, and the big brothers who are traveling with me are still on the plane, let’s go for a stroll in Jinli first
The national scenic spots are the same, which highlights the unique natural scenery of the Tibet trip
After the six people in the same group have assembled, they celebrate their successful reunion and wish them a smooth journey ahead.
Mother’s hoof flower, melts in the mouth
On the 5th, before the official departure, I came to a bowl of Hook Soul Noodles. The noodles are serious noodles, and the name is a bit sloppy.
You don’t feel any difference when you take a look at it now, and you won’t feel any difference after taking a bite.
Passing through Ya’an, there is a small private courtyard when you get off the Ya’an North Expressway, a small restaurant with a historical charm
The boss has a lot of goods

A slippery Toyota, there is no doubt about whether it is easy to use
Erlangshan Tunnel, the high-speed exit from the tunnel is over, and you start to set foot on National Highway 318
Another section of expressway is about to be completed and opened to traffic. Now the elevated road and tunnel of 318 are gradually being completed, and many scenery is slowly disappearing.
Go straight along the Dadu River and you will see the Luding Bridge. The iron lock tells a vivid history.
The highway section with the lowest toll, more than 70 kilometers, costs two yuan
Arrive at the Hailuogou Hot Spring Hotel on the evening of the 5th. Hailuogou is famous for its majestic Wannian Glacier, coupled with the large-scale red rock beach and tumbling hot springs, it constitutes the only glacier forest hot spring park in China. Hailuogou Hot Spring Hotel, you can soak in hot springs and swim, which is very good. After taking a bath, there will be hot spring water that you can drink directly, and it smells like rotten eggs.
Today is my 36th zodiac year birthday, and it is very meaningful to spend it with like-minded friends. I just started working in the last zodiac year, and I have been in this position for exactly twelve years. Longevity noodles given by the restaurant owner.
Thank good friends for their blessings and companionship

Wolf totem, can you see it, the green part, eyes, mouth, ears, come alive

After descending from Gongga Snow Mountain, head straight to Xindu Bridge, which is a fascinating “photography paradise” and a picturesque paradise. Magical light, boundless grasslands, winding streams, golden cypress trees, rolling hills, Tibetan villages scattered among them, cattle and sheep grazing peacefully…the plain scenery in western Sichuan is blooming beautifully. The outside world calls it a fascinating “world of light and shadow” and “a photographer’s paradise”.
It was the first time in Xinduqiao that I felt high-reverse. When walking in a hurry, or climbing the stairs, I felt out of breath. I woke up almost every hour throughout the night. When I fell asleep, I always felt that I was suffocated. Just wake up, hold back when you sleep.
scenery on the road
There are many mountains, as the name suggests, there are many turns. In fact, the road ahead is basically not straight. The most common action in the car is to turn the direction.
After coming out of Xindu Bridge, go straight to Daocheng Yading, settle lunch in Litang at noon, and arrive at Shangri-La Town in Yading at night
Are you a Tibetan Mastiff?
Daocheng Yading is known as “the last Shangri-La” and “the last piece of pure land on the blue planet”. If you are interested in Baidu, the scenic spot has not yet been fully developed, and it is strongly recommended to visit. This place is also the most challenging scenic spot in the whole process.
Drive here, take the bus for an hour to enter the mountain, transfer to the scenic spot for 20 minutes to Luorong Ranch, and there is still an 11-kilometer walk back and forth waiting for you. Those who weigh less than 170 can choose to take a mule and horse to Sheshenya, like me Don’t even think about such a fat man, let’s go.
The sixth child was robbed of the spotlight
do a new one
As soon as I entered the scenic spot, I was attracted by the scenery. The whole process was taken with a Huawei mobile phone. After uploading, the photos were compressed
The four beauties were probably taking pictures on Douyin, but after going down the mountain, I met them shouting, I will never come to Daocheng Yading again, I am really tired after a day, climbing the mountain in a state of hypoxia, the combat effectiveness is greatly reduced
Daocheng Yading has the famous Sanshen Mountains (Xian Nairi, Yang Maiyong, Xia Nuoduoji), and many glacial lakes (Pearl Sea, Milk Sea, Five-color Sea, Liuli Sea). The first person who discovered Daocheng Yading was the explorer Locke. Joseph. “In the whole world, where else is there such a scenery, waiting for photographers and explorers!” Joseph once described Daocheng Yading with such words.
Luorong Ranch, Yangmai Yongshen Peak is in the distance, and the whole road is also walking along her feet
The next beautiful scenery cannot be described in words, just feel it quietly
It is not easy to walk on an ordinary path, because the highest altitude here is 4700 meters, and every step will feel strenuous
Yang Maiyong from different angles
The next 1.8 kilometers really broke me down. I basically wanted to give up when I got here, because you have to go back the same way after you go up, and every tourist who comes back from the opposite side is saying come on, and you will never regret it after going up.
Basically, only faith is left to support. After walking more than ten meters, I have to stop and pant until my breathing is smooth, and then start to climb.
I finally saw you, luckily I didn’t give up
Whenever there are clouds, the color of the lake will change. Thanks to that walking stick?
Milk Sea, the lake on the top of the mountain, colorful lake water, photographed from different angles, with different colors
The joy of going up the mountain
Embarrassment when going down the mountain
There is a five-color sea one hundred meters above the milk sea. The scenery is under the milk sea. If you are not physically strong, don’t go up. This is the best reason for me not to go up.
The best season to come to Daocheng Yading is mid-October. I heard that it is basically this color. I searched for a picture from the Internet and introduced it to everyone.
In a state of embarrassment, my elder brother looked at the photo and said it looked like a group of blind people
Replenish energy at noon
This stone was brought back by me
After coming out of Aden, go straight to Batang
The brake pads checked before leaving have been worn out like this. I have been feeling that the brakes are not working these days. When I went down the mountain, the brake stroke became longer. I was so scared that I broke out in a cold sweat. When I arrived in Batang, I replaced the brakes. One piece, 1700 maomao, stare if you don’t change it, tomorrow’s mountain road is the most, and there are 72 turns.
People are highly reactive, and cars are also highly reactive, and the power of the 8-cylinder is attenuated a lot
looking back at the road
Tibet is the birthplace of great rivers
I was driving this part of the way, didn’t dare to take a picture, glanced at it, and then held on to the steering wheel
all day in the mountains
Tibet Road will experience four seasons and various landforms in one day
I’m going to save the dirt and go back and wash the car
The only speed limit card I received, many previous speed limit cards were replaced by camera interval speed measurement
Turn 72, try to choose a lower gear when going downhill, use the engine traction brake to protect the brake
