D20 Basong Village ~ Jilong Town 405km
I slept very comfortably last night, and today I will go to Jilong Town (Zhangmu Port is not allowed to enter).
Get up in the morning to add a photo of the hotel I stayed in last night
Refueling in Gangga Town, I ran 462km, refueled 66.54L, and the average fuel consumption was 14.4L/100km.
The price of low fuel consumption is that I dare not run fast, and I never exceed 110km/h all the way.
The mountain road is winding, and Mount Everest in the distance is still blocked by clouds (it was even more blocked when I came yesterday)
cloud is still low
Go straight here to Zhangmu, turn left to Geelong
Mount Shishapangma is 8,012 meters above sea level, ranking 14th among the world’s 14 peaks of 8,000 meters. It is also the only 8,000-meter-level mountain completely in China.
It is estimated that the road will be repaired in 2019 when entering and exiting Jilong County.
Road surface subsidence caused by water damage to roadbed
Almost all the trucks in Nepal are Tatas made in India. It is estimated that the exhaust gas is 0 environmental protection, and none of them is not emitting black smoke.
The co-pilot’s door is about to become a hole
Coming to Chongse Village, the last checkpoint, without a passport or pass, was intercepted. The checkpoint is more than ten kilometers away from the border.
The end of the white line on the mountainside is the border

I found an authentic Nepalese restaurant for dinner
D21 Jilong Town – Huoer Township, Pulan County 620km The
original plan was to go to Zhongba County, but it turned out that it was a bit early in Zhongba County, so we continued to walk forward.
In the morning, I refueled in Geelong Town and ran 278.7km. After turning over a mountain of more than 5200 meters, the fuel consumption was 36.3L, and the average fuel consumption was 13.02L/100km.
You can see the snow-capped mountains outside Jilong Town
This waterfall is also considered a scenic spot, but there is no charge. There is also a temple on the opposite mountain, so I didn’t go to see it if I couldn’t park.
This road is noisy, there is a slow car in front of you, and you will not be able to pass it for 40 minutes
The navigation led me to the road that drew a cross, but when I was approaching G219, the road was broken
Saga County is still very lively
It was too early to arrive in Zhongba, and I went around in Zhongba County, and then decided to go on
Zhongba County is smaller than Saga
Zhongba County refueled, ran 338.5km, refueled 50.43L, and the average fuel consumption was 14.9L/100km, and the fuel consumption increased with the speed.
This little white car is driven by one person. It departs from Shigatse in the morning and arrives at Shiquanhe in the evening.
Arrived at Hall Township, which is 40km away from Tarqin. The room rate is more than twice as cheap, and it is more convenient to drive around the lake in Manasarovar from here than from Tarqin.
The boss is a photography enthusiast, and he knows the photography locations near Gang Rinpoche very well. There are often foreign photography groups coming here, and the accommodation conditions are average.
D22 Hall Township~Pulang County~Talqin
got up early today (after 7 o’clock), the purpose is to take pictures of the sunrise of Mt. .
But people are not as good as the sky, there are clouds in the morning and there are quite a lot.
If you come, you will be safe, or drive to the Yunna Temple.
When the clouds cleared and the fog cleared, revealing the holy mountain Kailash, the sun was already high in the sky.
The father and son walked towards the Yunna Temple, and it seemed that they were going to worship
Old people who come to offer incense, wash their hands and face before entering the hospital
I don’t know if the dzi beads hanging around my neck are real or not, they are so beautiful.
Drive to the shore of Manasarovar Lake, the dirt road is not wide, but it is enough for vehicles to pass, but the more you walk, the more rocks there are.
Early in the morning, a few foreigners also came to visit the holy lake
The boulder blocks the road, the mountain is on the right and the lake is on the left
The dirt road is gone, only by the water’s edge
A family of four, I don’t know why the woman should be in front and the man behind
The eyes of the Tibetans turning around the lake contain tenacity, fortitude, desire and exploration
The old lady came to hang the prayer flags around the lake by herself
Drive west along the lake, and finally come here, the Jiwu Temple on the top of the mountain in the distance
Gang Rinpoche in the distance
Turn around and give the holy lake a panoramic view
Standing on the Jiwu Temple to see Gang Rinpoche
The main hall of Jiwu Temple was not opened for some reason
Seeing the holy mountain from Laon, the ghost lake, is more complete than seeing it in front of the holy mountain
ghost lake no ghosts
The water in Ghost Lake is extremely clear. Can I go swimming in summer? And the water is not salty, at least I drank a little while holding it, and I didn’t feel salty.
Most of the roads in Pulan County are under construction, which makes people feel very chaotic.
I went to the Nepal border trade market and found nothing worth buying.
Coming out of Pulan County, there is a downhill road heading west not far away. After entering and crossing the bridge, drive a little further and you will see a miniature temple in the middle of the road.
Nepalese handicrafts in the border trade market
I don’t know if it’s carved in stone or poured in resin.
Brown sugar, one has 2kg
