Last Few Days

We are reaching soon!

Amdo (4800m) to Naqu (4500m), a total distance of 138km. Finally the sun is out and we are very lucky to just have a gentle winds blowing upon us. Road conditions are good and generally smooth with some bumpy sections. Trucks flying as usual but much lesser than what we came across on our first turn to G109. 8km from Amdo lies is a big pass, after that there are about 4 small gentle climbs and quite a bit of descends . Good day!

Naqu (4500m) to Gulu (4687m), a total distance of 94km. Early departure helped us made some good distance, in the afternoon we embraced headwinds and hail.

Gulu (4687m) to DangXiong (4281m), a total distance of 74km. I would consider today also a good day since we only had a bit of rain and hail upon us. Roads are good with long hours of descending.

DangXiong (4281m) to YangBaJi (4284m), a total distance of 75km. We climbed over a pass (4506m) which is long and gentle. It doesn't really feel like you are going up a pass. After that, it is about 20km of descending. Smooth ride!

安多(4800米)-那曲(4500米),全程136公里,风和日丽。与前几天的暴雪天气形成鲜明对比,幸福来的太突然。路况较好,没有较极端的攀爬,出安多有一座较大的山口,其余坡度平缓,大部分时间属于下坡路段。

那曲(4500米)-古露(4687米),全程94公里,乘着早上的好天气尽快赶了些里程,果不然下午便是逆风和冰雹天气。

古露(4687米)- 当雄(4281米)74公里,天气不错部分路段偶遇冰雹,但持续时间都比较短。打在身上还是有些疼痛感。

当雄(4281米 - 羊八井(4284米)75公里,途经念青唐古拉山口海拔4606米,24公里余处逐渐开始上行缓坡抵达垭口基本属于下坡路段.

Travel Tips

G109 is known for head winds, wind in afternoon is usually much stronger. Early departure in the morning is a good decision.

小贴士

青藏线骑行逆风天气大部分时间都存在,这些天的骑行总结出来了,逆风天气一般都在下午时候较为生猛,建议清晨早些时候出发。
