I am a person who likes to go around. I am also a person who loves hiking and wading, even though I am in the building. When the vocals are fading, and only the insects are screaming, the heart slowly returns to calm. I put down the shackles in my heart and started to get closer to the world that I am most eager to drive, and I will give it to tomorrow.
“The evening wind blows Songtao, and the wind is ringing like a scorpio, standing in the quiet place of the city, letting everything go far…” Xu Wei’s journey with such a long-song voice can always take people on a journey Closed the eyes, more than once, I seem to hear the wind-like ringing from the quiet place of the city.
Driving to Tibet by car has always been a dream of the horizon, because the sky is blue, the clouds are beautiful, and people are pure. That kind of beauty is purely away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Close your eyes as if you can smell the clouds that floated over Tibet. It is also as if not far away, the snow-capped mountains are full of Gesangmeidu, so serene and holy. Perhaps Tibet is the closest to the sky, so he gave him a mysterious veil. Under his blessing, Tibet seems pure and sincere. I think it is not just a delusion, but more a yearning and pursuit of life.
Life is not only in front of you, but also poetry and distance! We are all children of God. Everyone has an almost crazy love for the natural scenery of the primitive wildness. Then follow the road to the west! I will drive the new Ford Road, who will take 12 days to start from the charm of Xinjiang, through Gansu, Qinghai, and 6,000 kilometers, will enter the backbone of the world, the peak of Mount Everest.
Urumqi-Turpan-Hami-Jiayuguan-Lanzhou-Qinghai-Germu-Tangula Mountain-Naqu-Lhasa. The whole journey was 5,400 kilometers and lasted for 12 days.
Traffic by car:
Driving all the way, the car is the new Ford Road
The overall social security in Tibet is good, but there are still very few bad people in the society who steal, swindle and rob. Don’t easily confess, don’t divulge “confidential” to prevent being deceived and causing losses. There are many attractions and hotel people during the tourist season, so keep your valuables and ensure your personal property and personal safety. Cash and valuables must be carried close to you (especially mobile phones and wallets).

If the secular is too chaotic, perhaps the place where the weeds and flowers, the blue sky, the white clouds and the snow-capped mountains lie together, can give you a past and thoroughness. The people here keep the most tenacable faith in the flood of years. This is Xinjiang, and it is also the place where our dream journey begins.
Walking into Turpan, I walked into a magical resort that the Creator has created for us. The desolate desert and the green oasis of the lush are living together, and they do not invade each other. The blue sky, there is no cloud. Liri is hung high and reflects the snowy mountains of the distant and majestic.
Turpan’s grass and trees, a mountain and a water, a cave, a sandstone, a bay and clear water, a residential house, a loess, seem to have hidden stories, seemingly implied moving legends. No wonder some people would say this: “Walking on the Turpan Basin, you will step on the imprint of history if you don’t pay attention.”
Drive to the famous Flame Mountain. At this time, there was some dust and sand outside the window, and the undulating flame mountain was looming. When I saw the Flame Mountain, I remembered the mythical story of Sun Wukong’s three-door iron fan princess fan fan on the mountain to smash the fire on the mountain. I remembered the ancient poetry written by the flame mountain: “A piece of blue smoke is red, and the flames are burning. Empty, the spring is not half as good as summer, who has the West to have a good time.”
The story of the flaming mountain, the taste of the grape ditch, the original ecological color of the Mazha village, will be full of blood and emotion. Surrounded by exotic animals in the Turpan Basin, rare plants, magnificent desert sand dunes, and clear spring streams. They are the most magnificent poems, the most moving landscape.
Turpan is the economic, political and cultural center of the Turpan region. It is located in the central and eastern part of the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, the Tianshan branch of the Bogda Peak, south of the Turpan Basin. It is adjacent to Shanshan County in the east; Toksun County in the west; Kuruk Mountain in the south to Yuli County; and the Tianshan Watershed in the north, adjacent to Urumqi, Qitai and Jimsar. The city is 50 kilometers away from the railway station and 182 kilometers away from Urumqi. There are Uighur, Han, Hui and other ethnic groups. The main attractions of Turpan City are: Jiaohe Old City, Gaochang Old City, Astana Ancient Tombs, Flame Mountain, Grape Valley, Sugong Tower, Aiding Lake, Kaner Well, Tuzigou Mazha Village, Kumutag Grand The desert, the cypress creek, the Thousand Buddha Cave, and the ruins of the Tang Dynasty.
Every historical imprint that can’t be buried in the wild sand, every trace of mountains and rivers that can’t be sunburned, not only witnessed the prosperity and noise of the past, but also profoundly engraved the vicissitudes and sadness of the development of Turpan. Our short stay can’t understand it in depth, and it is especially precious because of too much disappointment. Slowly put away my thoughts, we drove to the next stop 370 kilometers of Hami, 4 hours journey, full speed.
Today we will drive the new Ford Roadr in Hami and go to Jiayuguan along the Jingxin Expressway for more than 600 kilometers.The toll station in Xinjiang has encountered an armed police inspection of the live ammunition. This scene has been repeated several times every day in Xinjiang, showing that the control is strict.
The terrain along the way is abruptly different. The large black and red low hills are full of eyes. The green vegetation is sparse and dry. There will be a lush greenery along the roadside. Look carefully at the sand trees and crops.
Stars Gorge. It is not only the dividing line between Xinjiang and Gansu, but also the watershed of two different cultural styles. For the Xinjiang people, the Star Gorge is a wall, and even if it passes the courtyard, it will be out of the country. I am very happy to meet the Lhasa master who is driving, the very talkative Tibetan big brother, and explain to me the beautiful scenery and interesting things on the road to Mount Everest.
People in Tibetan areas have a special liking for SUVs. On the road, they talked about the new Ford Road, and the masters are full of praise. Through the interesting explanations of the masters, we can understand more about the hardships of this car. The Ford Roadr uses a full-time four-wheel drive mode and is equipped with a real-time TMS road management system that can conquer all extreme road conditions. Intelligent humanized configurations such as ramp assist and steep slope descent control systems allow drivers to travel on challenging, rugged mountain roads. Equipped with ESP body dynamic electronic stability system and RSC anti-rolling stability system can enhance the stability of the car body and ensure the safety of drivers and passengers.
The 2.0-liter EcoBoost turbocharged petrol engine powered by the Ford Roadr is still very efficient, even at a speed of 70-80 km at the height of the 5,000-meter snow-capped mountains. The space in the trunk after the third row was laid down was quite amazing. It was easy to put down 6 people’s luggage and work equipment without any pressure!
Listening to the master and talking, looking into the distant Qilian Mountains, ups and downs. Huo went to the West to levy the Xiongnu and Zhang Yi to make the history of the Western Regions. The Xiongnu sang: Losing me, Rouge Mountain, is my woman, you have no color, tragic and strong…. When time passes, time is always remembered. What is beyond the memory is how many sorrows and joys are carried here, and how many are separated.
Time always lapses on the road. At 12 o’clock in the afternoon, we came to the Liuyuan service area. There are 10 kinds of dishes for each buffet of 30 yuan.
Many of the gas stations on Hami’s way to Jiayuguan Road are opposite to the high-speed. It is difficult to find out if you look at it carefully. You need to see the next dirt road through the bridge. You should pay attention when you are on the road.
In the afternoon, I arrived at Jiayuguan for about four hours. I chatted with the master about the story of his hometown and gave us a deeper understanding of the Tibetan culture. Tibet has a vast territory. Due to different geographical environments and climates, natural conditions vary widely. In order to adapt to the natural environment and different climatic conditions, each region has distinctive national costumes. Tibetan clothing is most common with Tibetan robes. Urban residents like to make Tibetan robes with high-grade wool, hoes for farming areas, and fur for pastoral areas. The essential thing in Tibetan clothing is the belt. In addition to the belt, the Tibetan women’s state of Tibet alsoVery distinctive. In addition, Tibetans also like to wear hats, mostly felt hats, leather hats and golden flower hats, while the shoes worn by Tibetans are called Tibetan boots.
Tibetan food is one of the genres in the Chinese food and beverage series. It has a long history and a rich variety. Tibetan food is divided into three categories: staple food, dishes, and soup. The taste of Tibetan food is light and peaceful, and many dishes, except salt and onion and garlic, generally do not put spicy spices. In terms of eating meat, Tibetans have more taboos. Generally only eat beef and mutton, do not eat horses, crickets, crickets, and especially eat dog meat. In addition to some urban residents, fish, shrimp, snakes, crickets and other aquatic products are generally not used to eating.
I was sitting in the passenger seat, my vision was very wide, and I turned over one hill after another. The scenery along the road was constantly changing. The vast expanse of the road opened the hearts of the people. Chatting and chatting, he began to talk about his own story. The master has been driving in Tibet for many years. He used to go to the Qinghai-Tibet line. At that time, the road to Tibet was not so well repaired now, and there were many messy paths. Every year, many people in the Qinghai-Tibet Highway are in danger. The good brothers around them also have a rollover and distress. While holding the steering wheel with his hand and staring at the distant mountains, the master slowly fell into the memory of the dust for a long time.
Big Brother saw a lot of car accidents on the road. Once he rescued an injured Sichuan girl. At that time, the girl was trapped in her own car. The thigh was caught by the broken car accessories. The blood was flowing, and the white bone pierced the delicate skin and exposed. The girl turned pale and almost passed out. Big Brother took her out of the car and sent her to the hospital for rescue. The girl received timely treatment. Since then, the girl’s parents have called several times from Sichuan, thanking her brother for saving her daughter’s life. Big Brother not only saved the lives of others, but also saved the thoughts of others.
Attracted by the story of the master, I have come to the Jiayuguan exit without knowing it.
Jiayuguan City is the starting point of the west end of the Great Wall of the Ming Dynasty. It is a new regional center city of modern industrial tourism, which was founded in 1958 by the construction of Jiuquan Iron and Steel Company, a key project of the National “Five-Year Plan”. Known as “the world’s first Xiongguan”, “Bianyu lock key”. Jiayuguan City is one of the four prefecture-level cities in China that do not have a municipal district. Jiayuguan is the transportation hub of the ancient “Silk Road” and the starting point of the western end of the Great Wall of the Qin Dynasty.
When you come to Jiayuguan, how can you not go to the Jiayuguan Scenic Area? The scenic spot is located in the middle of the narrowest valley in the west of Jiayuguan City, Gansu Province. The walls on both sides of the city gate cross the desert Gobi, the north is connected to the Great Wall of Heishan, and the south is the first pier in the world. It is the westernmost gateway of the Great Wall of the Ming Dynasty. It was once known as the Hexi Throat in history. Because of the terrain and the majestic architecture, it has the world’s first glory and the key to the lock. Jiayuguan is the first major gateway to the western end of the Great Wall in the Ming Dynasty. It is also the traffic fortress of the ancient “Silk Road”. It is known as one of the three great wonders of the Great Wall of China (the East has Shanhaiguan, Zhongyou Town Beitai, and the West has Jiayuguan).
At 7 o’clock in the afternoon, I missed the scenic spot, but the friends still used the new Ford Roadr as a prop and played a selfie. With a domineering appearance and an oversized body, it is the most important thing we want to do now.
Jiayuguan City’s accommodation environment is very good, many hotels in the city center are affordable, and it is also a good choice for self-driving riders to stay in Jiayuguan. Our team stays in the Plaza Hotel, a good comfort environment can have a better mood to start tomorrow’s good.
Jiayuguan’s night market food is highly recommended, and the address is Datang Food Street.
Everyone has a Tibetan dream in their hearts. Many people regard Lhasa as their final destination, but they do not know that the most beautiful scenery in Tibet is on the road. There are many ways to enter Tibet. In different people’s minds, it has different meanings. There are endless snow-capped mountains, vast grasslands, and Tibetans who have long to go to Lhasa. It is not a simple beauty, but also a shock to the soul. It is a story worthy of a lifetime. Everyone needs to travel once in a lifetime. Today, the fourth day of the road with the new Ford Roadrs entering Tibet, Jiayuguan to Lanzhou.
There are thousands of roads in the world. Today, 730 kilometers of self-driving roads, Jiayuguan arrived in Lanzhou. This is a heart-rending, bloody arrogance. Although the roads are all at high speed, they carry too much scenery and beauty, too many accidents and surprises, too many stories and touches, too many feelings and shocks. I have not walked through this line. How do you know that there are many snow-capped mountains along the way, and there are many historical sites.
I left the hotel early and drove to Lanzhou. In the car, the driver’s master opened the voice and told us that “Opening the map of China, there are two lifelines that span things in history. With its unparalleled importance, it is deeply embedded in the body of the Chinese nation: a self West to the east, direct to the sea, is the Great Wall that protects the ancient people; one from east to west, deep into the desert, is the Silk Road to expand the Chinese civilization. These two are closely linked to the lifeline of the survival and development of the Chinese nation, in the long history In the middle of the drift, extension, finally 600 years ago, in the Qilian Mountains, the Hexi Corridor’s throat, the intersection of the throat, a solid knot.
For the first time in my life, I faced this desert in my own car. For the first time, I really experienced this scenery. When we stepped on the morning light and left Jiayuguan, a feeling of no one before, no one who came after, the world is long, and the feeling of squatting is born. Jiayu Guantou, the inner wall of the inner city is connected and connected, and the corner of the building is facing each other. The Han Great Wall in the Wanli Yellow Sands is like a dragon floating in the dragon. The ruins of the ruins and the ruins of the broken walls are like a historical picture of the vicissitudes of the frontier.
On the way to Jiayuguan, the teachers in the team said that there are ancient tomb buildings not far away, you can take us to understand the prosperity and vicissitudes of the past.
The ancient tomb group is 15 minutes away from the urban area. It opens the new Ford Road Car navigation and can accurately locate the navigation. This is very convenient for many outdoor owners. After all, many unmanned locations are difficult to locate.
The Orchard-Xincheng Tomb Group is located in the Orchard Township 20 kilometers west of the Suzhou District of Jiuquan City and the gravel beach and some farmland cultivated in the connecting area of the new town 18 kilometers east of Jiayuguan City. It is the fifth batch of nationally announced by the State Council in 2001. Key cultural relics protection units, the era is Wei (three countries) to Tang (220-907 AD). It is 20 kilometers long from north to south, 3 kilometers wide from east to west, with an area of about 60 square kilometers and more than 1,400 tombs. The tomb group is divided into two areas: the Eastern Orchard Tomb Group and the Western District New City Tomb Group.
The Orchard-Xincheng Tomb Group is located on the Gobi Beach in the southwest of Xincheng Township, Jiayuguan City, Gansu Province, and in the north of Orchard Township in Jiuquan City, covering an area of 130,000 square meters. The tombs contain gravel and gravestones, and large tombs or family tombs are found in the gravel surrounded by gravel. The excavation is seen as a brick tomb. The gates of carved bricks are built above the tombs of the tombs of the Wei and Jin Dynasties and the tombs of the Sixteen Kingdoms. The carved bricks have the side beasts, the Lux, the Leigong, the chicken heads or the heads of the ox. The tomb has two or three rooms. Front, middle room _ top, plane near side; back room voucher top, the plane is rectangular.
The carved bricks are made into eaves and urns. The tombs are next to the ink books “doors”, “inside”, “inside the stove”, “cow and horse circle”, etc. These may be the imitation of the family of the family. There are also some mural tombs, most of which are painted by bricks and inks, and then painted with ink lines. The contents include agricultural mulberry, animal husbandry, forestry, brewing, hunting, squadrons, camps, travel, banquet, kitchen, rumors, six blogs. Dock walls and architectural decorative patterns should be a portrayal of social life at that time. The tomb of the Tang Dynasty is made of die-printed bricks. The wall is inlaid with twelve zodiac signs, technical music, knights carved bricks, and the floor is paved with lotus-shaped tiles. The Orchard-Xincheng Tomb Group is a representative tomb of the Hexi Corridor in the Wei and Jin Dynasties and the Tang Dynasty. It is an “underground gallery” that studies social life, culture and art at that time. For reasons of protection, it is forbidden to shoot, and it is regrettable that the murals inside can not be presented to everyone.
The new city tombs are also called Weijin tombs. The tour time is about 30 minutes, and the ticket is 31 yuan. It is recommended that the self-driving riders who pass by may wish to go in and have a look. After the tour, we drove to the Jiayuguan Expressway and went to Lanzhou.
Drive along Jiayu South Bridge for 720 meters and go straight to Lianhuo Expressway. The total length from Jiayuguan to Lanzhou is 738.3 kilometers. The driving time takes 7 hours and 51 minutes. The fuel cost is about 468 yuan. The toll is about 190 yuan. The power of the new Ford Roadr on the high speed is very good. The power level of the 2.0T on the road is very sufficient. When the speed is 120km/h, there is still a certain amount of power when cruising, at 150km/ Overclocking speed is still relatively easy, the new Ford Roadr is better than the previously opened Prado 2700 in terms of power, after all, the car home 0-100km / h measured results are worse than 3 seconds .
The new Ford Roadr’s more resilient suspension setting and the rear integral bridge design with Watt connecting rods allow us to be more confident in passing back and forth in the traffic, if it is a comparison, Prado, Bald and Pajero In the mountains or high-speed self-driving travel, in the shape of a multi-bend mountain road, the suspension support of the Kushiro will be more obvious, which is also safer and more driving in Tibet.desire.
At lunch, we simply ordered some dishes in the service area of Gaotai County. The average price is 30 yuan per person. We recommend 68 yuan a pound of fried lamb, which tastes very good.
In the afternoon, the sky began to clear, and the snow-capped mountains appeared in front of us. The little friends in the car excitedly picked up the camera to record this beautiful moment.
At 7 o’clock in the evening, our Kushiro team arrived in Lanzhou City to catch up with the late peak of congestion. It is recommended that the owner of the self-driving car enter Lanzhou to plan a good time.
The hotel is located in the Asia-Europe Hotel next to the city night market. The overall service environment is good. Although it is an old-fashioned hotel, the sanitation is very good.
When I came to Lanzhou, I couldn’t help but mention the night market here. In many first-tier and second-tier cities, the night market has been replaced. Lanzhou has kept this lively scene. At 8 o’clock in the evening, it was already full of people, and it was very lively. Looking at the tempting variety of food, people forgot the fatigue of the journey, just want to taste it.
When it comes to Lanzhou, the word that comes out of your mind is “Lanzhou Ramen.” Although Lanzhou is only a transit point for our journey, as a foodie, I will never let go of any chance to eat. The most famous snack street in Lanzhou is called Zhengning Road. There are all kinds of delicious food in it. It is not expensive, and the consumption is not expensive. We have 400 tickets for six people.
This is the characteristic milk egg glutinous rice here. (Popular time: “醪” reads “lao.” There are also grapes, sesame seeds, etc., which are very delicious and must be tried!
I have a special attachment to Tibet. When I started to know Tibet, I read a lot of books about Tibet. I realized the mystery and beauty of Tibet in the pictures and found spiritual comfort in the lines. Fortunate to participate in the new Ford Roadr 0-8848 leap peak tour, we will form two teams, starting from Shanghai and Xinjiang, driving the new Ford Roadrs to participate in the PK challenge, and finally in Lhasa, to walk together mysterious Lhasa, let you, my heart and heaven become one.
Life is not only in front of you, but also poetry and distance! We are all children of God, and each person has an almost crazy love for the natural scenery of the primitive wildness.
After four days of more than 2,000 kilometers, we arrived in Lanzhou. Thick and unique northwest style, let meWe realized the charm of Lanzhou. I have the privilege of meeting strong teachers and other Lanzhou friends.
A Beijing car owner also left Lanzhou with us and traveled to Tibet. On the way, we talked about his views on the new Ford Roadrs driving to Tibet. I call the owner the Xixi brother, he said, “The price of this car is the price of the general suv, but the configuration of many aspects of the car is very good. First, let’s say the four driving force of this car, even if it is single Buying a four-wheel drive car will cost a lot of money. On the basis of the four-wheel drive, the car has a very spacious space and a pretty appearance, so the overall price is really worth the price. Most satisfied, no matter where you go, what kind of road you take, the power will bring surprises, feel that you have a sense of dependence in your heart, and you are very relieved on the road. I usually drive the provinces to run, have not been There are few mountainous areas. On all kinds of uphill and downhill roads, the car is rude, saying that it is as flat as it is, it is not difficult at all. And don’t look at this car looks like it is particularly bulky, but the car’s starting ability Very good, this also depends on the power of the car!”
Out of the territory of Gansu, the sky began to change blue, and our partners were happy, and they took out the camera to shoot the long-lost blue sky and white clouds.
Follow us all the way to see this beautiful road to Tibet.
Lanzhou is 600 kilometers away from Wulan, driving for about 7 hours, all the way is the Beijing-Tibet Expressway, and there is no traffic jam. There are many gas stations and service areas along the way. The lunch and dinner in each service area are 30 yuan buffet. There are meat and vegetables, and the taste will be much better than Tibet.
For car owners who love to drive, going to Tibet is an eternal topic. Xixi’s elder brother said that going to Tibet is a matter of feelings. Life needs to say the courage to go, and walking is the best feeling. At this time, the sky is a dazzling blue, and it is difficult to breathe even in the thin air. And we, as we are enjoying the sun with unbridledness, with a big stream of clouds flying over our heads, everything goes to the ethereal.
Arrive at Ulan Gold Sea Hotel at 8pm, the hotel is one of the best hotels in Wulan County. The service facilities are all Samsung standard and it is recommended to drive by car owner.
Time flies so fast, it has been five days since the start of Xinjiang, and it has been so busy and busy every day. This trip has yielded a lot of rewards, lots of memories and lots of memories. With a tired body, accompanied by music, beat the emotion of this road, it is a beautiful aftertaste. Appreciate the beauty of this road, experience the sentiment from the depths of the soul, and experience the delicate,That agility, that charm, that bleak, and the feelings from the depths of the heart.
Introduce the food of these days, starting from Urumqi to Qinghai Golmud all the way to Urumqi, Xinjiang, with the new Ford Road Caravan team came to the realm of Turpan, “the hottest, lowest, the most drought, the sweetest”, Accurately summarize the characteristics of Turpan. The MacGregor Food City is not to be missed. This place should be a place rich in Xinjiang cuisine in the urban area of Turpan. The environment is relatively clean and there is a good room upstairs. The service is rough but the speed… The food is very good in taste. It is a good local restaurant, good quality and low price, especially the noodles are quite delicious, the environment is very good, recommend large chicken.
I want to eat something different in the local area but I can’t find a place. This is the most headache. Although there are various kinds of group buying software, I can’t find any delicious food. Especially recommended is the National Restaurant Nerufa Restaurant, which has a distinctive ethnic restaurant. The decoration style is especially romantic. The taste of the food is also good. It is a local speciality. Friends who like meat will like it very much. Turkish black tea is brought to you. You are not the same taste.
Jiayuguan Manchu Street is a barbecue shop. The best way to choose is naturally to find more people. It is not wrong to make a fun. What we recommend here is what we have tasted after, and it is also the old restaurant of Jiayuguan. It is not wrong to see many local customers. Datang Food Street Lee Beard Grill is highly recommended. This is the best taste of the barbecue we have on this road. It is also recommended on the Internet to find the recommended reputation. It really tastes good, especially the roasted tendon. For the first time, I had a sour barbecue grill with a lot of vinegar. I still remember it, and the roast leg of lamb and kebab are good.
Lanzhou’s cuisine is also quite a lot, such as Lanzhou beef noodles, stuffed skin, pulp surface, layered beef cake, etc., all of which are authentic, but the most famous is the Lanzhou beef noodles. I have to say that it is not a little bit better than the Lanzhou beef noodles in other places. The meat is separated from the noodles, the meat is soft and rotten, the gluten is good, and the soup is good. Recommend Ma Zilu beef noodles.
Wulan Chaka Sheep is a semi-fine wool sheep in the Qinghai Plateau. The mutton is rich in minerals and vitamins. It tastes fresh and tender, tastes mellow, has no astringency and is not greasy. It has been known as the “Gongyang” since ancient times. Recommend the mutton of Camel Springs Food City.
The Golmud Hotel is mainly composed of hot pot, halal Yangzhuang and Sichuan cuisine. Golmud’s lamb is very famous, has no astringency, and is very tender and very attractive. In addition, barley wine and yoghurt are also very authentic drinks. In the evening, the Kunlun Cultural Square on Bayi Road is opposite to the barbecue stalls, and the dry mix and roast lamb are more attractive. Recommend Ma Yi black and white roast lamb.
With melodious melody and singing on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, our new Ford Roadrs team went straight to Tibet and the Everest Base Camp. If you are not immersed in the situation, it is difficult for you to think about the Qinghai-Tibet Road at an altitude of more than 5,000 meters. The car ran on the plateau mountain road in Miyazaki, and then ran up the mountain, and then turned to the low valley, one after another, thousands of times. It seems that you are surfing, you are gliding, you are spinning.
Today’s team will arrive in Nagqu in the Tibetan area from Golmud in Qinghai, with an altitude of over 5,000. The sky here is pure blue, and the sky like a flock of sheep flies through the white peaks, constructing a drunken picture. The climate of the plateau is most volatile, and it will be clear in the air for a while, and it will be cool for a while, and the rain will drift. Travelers scrambled to discreet light and shadow, and tried every means to put this most beautiful impression in the memory space.
This is a barren land that has been dried and burnt, and it is so open, and there is no nakedness in the nakedness. The pebbles and gravel all over the place could not survive even a drop of water. He said that there was no human fireworks, and even an eagle or a yellow sheep could not see it. The road is straight and straight, there is no bend in more than ten kilometers, and the road is almost parallel to the Kunlun Mountains stretching thousands of miles across the south of the basin.
If the Loess Plateau is regarded as the first step, the Qinghai Plateau will be counted as the second step. Then, after passing through the Kunlun Mountains, it can be called the third step. The average elevation is above 4500 meters. It is the plateau on the plateau. It is the tester. The physique will and the performance of off-road vehicles.
In this bitter cold area, quietly flowing a very inconspicuous river – the Weihe River. If there is no map book, if there is no sign warning, it is hard to believe that the river in front of you is the source of the Yangtze River and you can see the real river. She is weather-beaten, always so ordinary, like a loving mother who does not ask for a return. Standing on the banks of the Weihe River, facing the connotation of five thousand years of civilization, there is sound, but I am speechless. I have always been not good at expressing emotions in exaggerated ways, but at the moment, not to mention anything, I think that expression is pale and powerless.
The car continues south, and the Tanggula Mountains across the East are in sight. It is the remains of the majestic mountain-building movement, like a wrinkle on the face of the old man on earth. As a person who loves photography, he should touch it anyway. I don’t know when, I stood on the backbone of the tall Tanggula.
At the mouth of the mountain, the wind whistle, and the hunters hunted. This is a primitive and desolate state in which ghosts and gods are deterred. A space that seems to have nothing to do with human beings. Even if it is sunrise and sunset, it will turn to the stars, and the eternal ice and stone will stubbornly guard the long time, rejecting the times. Go forward together.
Starting from the Tanggula Pass, it will enter the no-man’s land and be inserted directly into the Anduo County of the Tibet Autonomous Region. The Datang Gula Pass is 5231 meters above sea level. It is the natural boundary between Qing and Tibetan provinces and the highest point of the 109 National Highway on the Qinghai-Tibet Line. The peak of Tanggula’s mountain is not snowing all the year round, and dozens of ancient glaciers rushing across the river. It can be said that “the mountain is near, and the river is far from the river”. Here you can also see the mysterious four scenes of the day.
It is not far from Tanggula Mountain Town to see Tibet welcome you. This section of the road already belongs to the Tibet Pipeline, but it has not yet reached the real boundary between Qinghai and Tibet. The geographical boundary is the Tanggula Pass. The Qiangtang prairie in northern Tibet shows great vitality, cattle and sheep in groups, and clouds on the blue sky, which only knows what is called the mountains. After more than 500 kilometers of crossing the plateau, our team arrived in Nagqu and finally talked about our new Ford Road.
If it is not it, I believe that it will not go so high, go so far, and will not achieve the long-awaited wish, so the next time you have a self-driving tour, you can choose the new Ford Road, hope to help you like to travel by car. friend.
Let’s talk about power first. The model used this time is the four districts of Kushiro. Even at the speed of 70-80 km at the 5,000-meter snow-capped mountain pass, there is no lack of motivation. Although it has a 3 ton kerb mass, it is easy to challenge the 45-degree meadow hillside on a plateau of 4,000 meters. With a 2.48-fold powerful low-speed torque amplification function, the entire climbing process is very easy and leaves A lot of spare power. Ford’s 2.0T engine is fully capable of power on the road stalker. At high speed 120km/h, there is still a certain amount of power when cruising, and it is easier to overspeed at 150km/h. .
The chassis is soft and soft: the more flexible suspension setting of the road and the rear integral bridge design with Watt connecting rods make people more confident in passing back and forth in the traffic. Suspension support is good at high speed cornering. You don’t have to worry about the craters and seesaws on the bad roads. The front double wishbone and rear integral bridge suspension can effectively absorb the vibration on the road surface, but the overall adjustment is not completely comfortable, retaining a certain degree of toughness as a symbol of hard-core models. This design also allows it to maintain sufficient body stability when passing through the road.
The feeling of the road stalker gives me the feeling that it will not throw me on the plateau, driving a steady road, and the stability control is very satisfied with this entry. Finally, give some advice to friends who are entering the city by car or preparing to enter Tibet. Pay attention to safety. This time we have witnessed many car accidents. There are off-road trucks that rush out of the road under good road conditions. There are overturned cars, crashes, and rushing out of the guardrail… remind everyone not to drive the fatigue car, don’t drive the car, don’t drive the car. Open the big car, the frozen soil section looks at the car less, in fact, the road surface is uneven, it is easy to fly out of control.
Tanggula Town, Qinghai, to Lhasa, the journey is about 780 kilometers, from 6:30 in the morning to 1 in the morning, it takes 18 hours and 30 minutes. Although the Qinghai-Tibet Highway uses the Tanggula Pass as the boundary between Qinghai and Tibet, the Qinghai-Tibet Highway has belonged to the Tibetan conservation section from Golmud. The road conditions in the maintenance section of the Tibet Autonomous Region have become very poor. From time to time, the road surface has been damaged and collapsed. This gives the seat belt. There are great hidden dangers. The irony is that there is no way to speed on the road. The Tibet Autonomous Region police has set a lot of speed limit checkpoints, when you pass each speed limit checkpoint.Will give you a speed limit bar, which records the speed limit standard of the road section and the time you passed, but you don’t have to worry about speeding. You can’t speed the road. It’s just that every checkpoint artificially creates a traffic jam.
A few scenery along the way
After 7 hours of driving, I finally came to this dream place – Lhasa
Because of the afternoon time, I went to the museum first, just as the back garden of Norbulingka was there. After I came back, I could go to the Potala Palace to step on it. Well, the temporary arrangement is quite good, haha. In fact, several attractions are not too far away, hiking + adapting to the environment is just right, but the road idiot please bring a navigation person…
Coming to Norbulingka is the place where the Dalai Lama has ruled out the summer affairs. The so-called “summer palace” is a Tibetan-style garden. Starting with the 7th Dalai Lai’s construction of the Wusong Pagoda, the 14th Dalai Lama built the Dadan Mi Wenpo chapter, which lasted for more than 200 years.
At present, like the People’s Park, if you go in the winter, you should only look at the buildings and palaces, and the vegetation, there is nothing…
Ps, there is also a zoo, which is charged separately, 10 yuan / person
From Norbulingka, go straight to the Potala Palace, the place that was only seen on 50 quick money!
The palace walls of the Potala Palace are made of stone, wood and forage, so they are flammable and have limited load. The tour guide said that the Potala Palace will not be open to the public in the next few years because the current Buda The weight carried by the La Palace is already very large.
The palace of the Potala Palace has just been refurbished in September this year, so the wall we saw was very new.
The white walls are smeared with a mixture of milk; the red and yellow are applied from a mixture of saffron; all materials are chemically free and are edible and medicinal.
In addition, the wall sill we saw on the picture below is a kind of grass that is piled up after compaction and has the function of preventing insects.

Jokhang Temple (ticket 85, tour guide fee 25/bit)
According to the introduction, the Jokhang Temple is a very central temple in Tibetan Buddhism. It houses Princess Wencheng and the 12-year-old statue of Sakyamuni brought from the Tang Dynasty. It is believed that seeing Buddha statues and seeing 2500 years There is no difference between the former Buddhas.
In addition, there are only three Buddha statues in Sakyamuni in the world. The founder of Buddhism, Shakyamuni, opposed the idolatry when he was alive, and did not set up a temple for the image. At the end of his life, Sakyamuni only agreed to use his own three different ages to form a statue and personally draw for the statue. Among the three Buddha statues, the bronze statue of Sakyamuni as the prince at the age of 12 is the most exquisite and distinguished. After the Buddha image flowed from ancient India to China, it was brought to Tibet by Princess Wencheng of the Tang Dynasty. The 12-year-old figure of Sakyamuni was enshrined in the Jokhang Temple. This is one of the reasons why many people worship Buddha outside the gate of the Jokhang Temple.
This dazzling ultraviolet light, Tibetans and tourists from the Jokhang Temple come and go, all of them are exposed to the sun, shopping, eating, drinking, and devout. Before I came to Tibet, I always thought that Tibet was a city with no order and no sense of security. When I really came here, I discovered that Tibet’s law and order can be said to be in front of it. Every other street has security inspections, police stations, and public places. Toilets, these are all ubiquitous environments and are managed very cleanly, making people very comfortable.
Tibet, a place where you think about it day and night; a sacred and beautiful place; a place where you can heal your mood; a place you don’t want to go when you come. This self-driving trip is full of the warmth of the sun, the harmony of people, the greatness of faith, and the companionship of small partners. Because of you, the journey is happy and not alone. And I am constantly accumulating my own experience. I think I will continue to go further and further and will not be able to extricate myself.
I am a person who likes to go around. I am also a person who loves hiking and wading, even though I am in the building. When the vocals are fading, and only the insects are screaming, the heart slowly returns to calm. I put down the shackles in my heart and started to get closer to the world that I am most eager to drive, and I will give it to tomorrow.
