D18 Lhasa～Yanghu Lake～Gyantse～Shigatse
Lhasa has a magical power that makes people reluctant to leave once they come. I have lived for five days, and it is time to go to look up at Mount Everest, otherwise I really have to stay and not leave.
Generally go to Yanghu Lake is to take the G318, I choose to take the country road. Although it is difficult to walk, you can walk into the simple and primitive Tibetan village.
Refueling 760 yuan, 90.26L
This way of walking has another advantage, that is, if you really enter the villages in the Tibetan area, you can also have a closer and closer contact with Yanghu Lake for a longer period of time.

After passing the Yarlung Zangbo River Bridge, turn left when you see the road sign of Gangduo Village and enter the township road, and you will arrive at Gongga Qude Temple not far away. It’s not too early to come, but I don’t know why the door hasn’t opened yet, so I don’t bother the host, just take pictures outside and leave.

Big goose, go slowly, I brought a cauldron
The Tashilhunpo Monastery came late, saying that it was closed and not allowed to enter, and said that he wanted to enter and come back tomorrow morning.
D19 Shigatse～Everest Base Camp～Basong Village
The purpose of going today is to go to the base camp to see Mount Everest and take pictures of the sunset of Jinshan in the sunshine. The original plan was to live in a tent hotel, but seeing the poor conditions (7-8 people per tent, in case someone snores, don’t sleep this night), I decided to drive dozens of kilometers to live in Basong Village.
Going to Mount Everest may be everyone’s long-cherished wish, but only professional mountaineers can really get in touch with it. We ordinary people look up at Mount Everest up close.
Yesterday 354km up and down the mountain, the average fuel consumption was 13.42L/100km, not bad
The road from Shigatse to Everest Base Camp is now very well repaired
The income of Tibetans here should be ok
Harvesting of highland barley has begun
Basong Village is 4,300 meters above sea level and 37km away from the base camp. The village is very large with dozens of families and several hotels
This place is big, easy to park
Rongbuk Monastery Checkpoint
This is an error in the year setting of the driving recorder, it should be September 16, 2018. I won’t explain it one by one in the future
When going up the mountain, it was still raining intermittently. When we reached Mount Everest at 3 pm, the light rain had stopped, but Mount Everest was still covered by clouds and fog. Ask the owner of the tent hotel in the base camp, the owner said that you can see the Rizhao Jinshan at 8:00.
Just to take a picture with it
At three o’clock in the afternoon, Mount Everest is still shyly hiding in the clouds
Lu Yu met a group of New Zealand motorcyclists who drove from Yunnan. The motorcycles were all Yunnan license plates. They rented them all the way.
Borrowing: There are strange peaks in the mountains, locked in the clouds. Ordinarily invisible, occasionally exposed.
After waiting for more than 5 hours, I finally paid for it in vain, and the sun shines on Jinshan!
After shooting the sunset, it was almost 9 o’clock. The conditions of the tent hotel in the base camp were really poor. Considering that I had to drive and play alone, the rest conditions should not be sloppy. Decided to go down the mountain in the dark to live. 80 yuan/night, the price is the same as on the mountain, but the level of comfort is not the same level.
Unexpectedly, in such a remote small village, there is a fully licensed hotel
In fact, on the way to Mount Everest, I saw the concentration of hotels in Basong Village, so I planned to stay here.
The mattress is very good, moderately soft and firm, it is very comfortable for me to live alone
Can it be convenient together?
