Yege-Lhasa Turn Off

Yege-quma River-Nomad house to the last stretch heading to Lhasa Turning Point is a total of 213km, 2 nights stay and a switch of highways from S308-G109. These past few days we have been riding in a less populated area and it has been the most challenging days for us. During the ride, we are still able to see some nomad tents / settlement and some construction site but most of time you are alone in this vast land.Weather changes rapidly with strong winds. Occasionally, we can see wild animals run on both sides of the roads. Scenery doesn't change much but it is the same most of the time and beautiful as usual. Road conditions are generally good with elevation between 4200 - 4600m with rolling roads. Generally riding on the QingHai and Tibet plateau, the main challenges would be climbing and headwinds.

Antelopes

叶格-曲麻河-牧民平房(留宿113Km)-不冻泉(拉萨转点S308转G109,留宿100km)。 过去这些天在无人区的几百公里,是目前为止对我们来说最具挑战的一段骑行。虽说是无人区,在几百里的范围内偶尔还是能见到牧民的帐篷和牛群。单一的景色多变的天气,野生动物也在路两侧的草原肆意游荡,见的最多的还是藏羚羊了。路面平整,起伏坡度较多,海拔在4200-4600米之间来回走动,风力强劲。青藏高原骑行主要难度还是在于逆风和连绵不断的起伏路面。

Frozen Bamboo

It is a first time we get to stay next to a wolf in the KeKeXiLi wild reserve tonight. A wolf is an animal created with swift movements and eyes that observes everything around. You know she has a plan in her mind.

Good Job Riders!

第一次和草原狼亲密接触是在可可西里保护站内。面对面,你不太饿,而我也不急着跑。


Travel tips

Yege to Lhasa Turning Point, this route has nothing to offer rather than its nature. Don't come unless fully prepared.

小贴士

叶格到拉萨转点这200多公里的路程,如果你没有机动车且没有充分的补给和留宿准备,不要来。
