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