Long Way On The Plateau

Sheeps

Qumarleb (4200m) to Yege (4200m), within this 101km distance, there are four passes that is over 4500m. Elevation changes between 4200m to 4600m, gentle climbs, idea for bikes. A paved road laid in the middle of the grassland, wide views endless mountain range. Besides Yak and sheep herds we have also seen about few dozens of Tibetan antelopes, which are very sensitive and beautiful animals. 

There is an obvious drop of human activities in this area. What we see is a quiet world with beautiful landscapes.

Antelopes

 曲麻莱(4200m)到叶格(4200m),全程101公里途经四座4600米左右的垭口,海拔基于4200-4600之间徘徊,坡度适宜,较理想的骑行路段。广阔的草原中间开出一条平整的路面,视野开阔人烟稀少。正式进入藏羚羊的领地边缘,成群结队的在公路两侧觅食。

「麻莱县被称为“长江源头第一县”。七八十年代,生态环境脆弱的曲麻莱从一片荒草滩建成了一座繁荣城镇,县内饲养牲畜120万头,成为值得宣扬的业绩。然而过度放牧,河水的过度开发,造成江源水流枯竭,曲麻莱县城因此两次迁址,被废弃的旧县城成为一片废墟。图为曲麻莱县城旧址。」

Drop in human activity

 渐近无人区,明显感觉到周边人类活动的减少,世界就这么安静下来了。愿你也能远离城市的喧闹,有一份宁静。

Rest here!
