Search for eight thousand miles (self-driving big ring line) – Sichuan – Tibet – Qinghai 15

Spread the love

    On the 7th day after returning from Tibet, I faced a 1,500 photos to be treated, and I chose to sleep every day. If it wasn’t because the “Summer Saver Plan” ended on the 26th, I would not have sent this article spanning 15 days at 23:45 on the 25th. Due to the rush of time, I had to continue to update the revised picture after the publication. If there is a watchman who finds out why the picture I saw yesterday is different from what I saw today, I have to keep silent. . .
    Until 2015.7.3, I have never been to Tibet, neither reading nor reading, let alone talking about a documentary about Tibet. But on one night last year, I dreamt of Tibet. The dream was so real that I got the reason to sleep a little longer so that I could dream of more scenes. The whole dream is composed of my imagination about Tibet. Now I remember that I have to admire the power of the subconscious. The only dream in the picture that can be remembered now is to fly over the blue lake and fly over the colorful Awkward snowy mountains. As for why it is a flyby, I think it should be the reason why the character will automatically carry the bamboo raft when it is set.
    There are too many roads to Tibet, and Yunnan, Qinghai, Sichuan can enter Tibet. After graduating from last year, I went to Qinghai and Gansu. Although I was only one step away from Tibet, I once thought about diverting Tibet. But after all, I still couldn’t escape from the plan, but after all, there are too many holy places for tourism. The development of things within the end will also be moving.
    From Sichuan to Tibet and then back to Sichuan via Qinghai, the total length is 6,000 kilometers; plus from Nanjing to Chongqing and from Chengdu to Shenzhen, the total length of the 15-day journey has reached 8,000 miles. This is why I named the travelogue “Hidden Eight Miles”.
    15 days is very long, we always sigh that the photos are not as shocking as the eyes, and the sighs are not as intoxicating as the images. The journey is a unique experience that allows us to indulge in the baptism of the beautiful scenery, and also allows us to stay in the distance between the distant roads, the scenery is unchanged, and the mood is far away. . .
    The journey lasted for 15 days. From the third day, it took 2 days to enter Tibet, spent 8 days in Tibet, and returned to Chengdu after passing through Gansu and Qinghai.
    The itinerary is full, and the first few days are only three or four hundred kilometers, and then every day is six to eight hundred kilometers. Ps: Each station in Tibet has a checkpoint, and there will be timing through the site, and it will not time out.

     About high anti
    Drug: Rhodiola
    This time to go to Tibet, the only anti-high anti-drug is Red King’s capsule. I bought 2 boxes online and probably can eat for 30 days. I started eating about 10 days before the departure date.
    From the third day to Xinduqiao, the altitude rose to 4000. The only reaction was to sleep unsteadily at night, always wake up, and the head would hurt when you got up. This feeling lasted only two nights. The next step is to go to Haizishan, Tanggula Mountain and other places with altitudes above 5,000 meters. There will be slight headaches and nausea. According to the driver, our high backcalculation is extremely slight.
     About self-driving
    This self-driving destination is Tibet. It is well known that the Sichuan-Tibet Highway is known for its high altitude. The road conditions are complex, and the roadside is called an empty road. The supporting facilities are almost invisible. These have brought us and our car a big challenge.
    Although the previous paragraph introduced some small methods to prevent high anti-reverse, there are certain differences in each human body, and more or less discomfort along the way is inevitable. Occasionally, it is not impossible to smear. People in the state of hypoxia are easily inattentive and unresponsive, which makes the risk factor of the self-driving Sichuan-Tibet line far greater than that of ordinary roads. Coupled with uncertain weather factors, accidental injuries require urgent treatment, and the route is unfamiliar. Sudden circumstances, etc., these have to be tested before travelingConcerned about the problem.
    We all hope to be safe and peaceful on the way, so this time we will consider buying insurance for the first time, and we will be prepared for the safety of ourselves and our companions. After careful selection by Jing Jing, I finally jumped into my eyes to think about the self-driving guarantee in Allianz. The name is indeed a bit less pleasing, but the reason for choosing it is not only that the driver can provide financial compensation when the driver has an accident. The most important thing is that if our car has a little temper strike, the wilderness in the Sichuan-Tibet Highway Zone, the insurance company will provide free road rescue, repair, trailers to protect our self-driving tour!
    For reference:
     Use the app to make watercolors
    The watercolor that I learned during college was put to a close at the moment of the class. After three years, I left the unfamiliar hands and dry paint trays.
    “Southbound Miscellanies”The watercolor is the time when the university went out to sketch. As a homework painting, today’s watercolors are so bad that they can only be made with an app. It is really not the same.
    Recommend an app that makes watercolors: waterlogue
     The first two days
    Route: Nanjing-Chongqing-Chengdu
    Live: Chunxi Road College West Street
    Eat: 钵钵 chicken (strong push), Jinli snack, hot pot
    Three years ago, for a while, I was obsessed with illustrations. I met a painter called “Broomstick” in a magazine. Since then, I have liked the illustration villain wearing a red hat. The broom has an illustration set called “In Chongqing”, which is my first understanding of Chongqing. Chongqing, I have always been a leisurely and beautiful mountain city in “Chongqing”, but it is a pity.
    For me, in addition to food, it is a friend who attracts me more. Yuan Ma and the wisdom and wisdom of the companion, so that this journey from the beginning is full of enthusiasm.
    First stop: wide and narrow alley
    Address: West of Changshun Street, East of Tongren Road, Qingyang District, Chengdu City, Sichuan Province
    Tickets: None
     The wide and narrow alleys on Saturday are crowded with people. As a small and famous ancient street, the transformation of Kuanzhai Alley is indeed very pleasant.
     Say Chengdu, how can you not say cute pet pandas. Chengdu’s pandas are not just at the giant panda base, from Chunxi Road to Kuanzhai Alley, where the footprints and figures of pandas are everywhere.
    There are also many petty-bourgeois shops in Kuanzhai Alley.
    Second stop: Jinli
    Address: No. 231 Wuhouyu Street, Wuhou District, Chengdu, Sichuan Province
    Tickets: None
    I thought that there were enough people in the wide and narrow alleys, but Jinli was absolutely blue and the heads were surging, especially the snack street, which was crowded and could not turn around. But when it comes to snacks, Jinli has a very concentrated snack street, three cannons of jelly, and a bunch of snacks that can’t be named, can be tasted in Jinli.
     Compared with the wide and narrow alleys, Jinli is more ancient and green.
     After coming out of Jinli and merging with wisdom, I went to the Du Fu Caotang. Because of the heartfelt love of the string, the wisdom sister took us to a Leshan pheasant near the Du Fu Caotang to eat a string.
     Since the Pioneer Bookstore in Nanjing, those picturesque bookstores have become my favorite.
     Or awkward or quiet, all silenced in the ocean of the book.
    The degree of deliciousness can only be described in one word: great!
    Third stop: Fangsuo Bookstore
    Address: Basement, Taikoo Li (elevator near miumiu)
    Tickets: None
     Located on the banks of the Huanhua River, Du Fu Caotang is the former residence of the poet Du Fu when he was in Chengdu. Although the time has passed, the transformation is very suitable.
     Thick moss is like a rich matcha.
     DrowningCat and kosher koi.
     The time spent with friends is always fleeting, walking through the bustling streets and lanes during the day, walking through the bars in the night, wanting to stay all the time, but there are too many beautiful scenery on the road ahead. wait. Chengdu in the night, always so nostalgic.
     Day 3 Kangding – Xinduqiao
    Driving directions: Chengdu-Ya’an-Luding (Luding Bridge)-Kangding-Xinduqiao
    Live: Xinduqiao
    Eat: Xinduqiao Youth Hostel Canteen
    First stop: Luding Bridge
    Tickets: 10 yuan; students half tickets.
    Luding Bridge, a place of revolution in books and memories. The surrounding area of ​​the cable bridge has developed into a modern town, passing through the square, and the plaque hanging above an antique wooden house reads the words “泸定桥”. If it is not the surging river, I am afraid it is hard to remember the past of passion. Although it is already on the chain, but the rushing river, the unstable bridge, people are still afraid of going up. Although the bridge itself is only 50 meters in length, it is still very dangerous once and for all.
     The world outside the bridge.
     In the distance, the snow-capped mountains are slightly exposed.
     Third stop: Xinduqiao
     The roadside is full of sporadic flowers, scattered on the grass, that is the garden of the dwarf.
     I have already seen the beauty of the photography paradise Xinduqiao. I thought that this green and lush summer has neither yellow leaves nor smoke, and I am afraid it is just an ordinary place. I just didn’t expect to see the scenery as picturesque as I saw it, which is like a paradise.
     Deep in the grass, the horses are grazing.
     This tender look is like a lamb.
     I am only loyal to this white horse.
     As night falls, the stars are shot in the small yard behind the hotel. Although the altitude is already 4,000, it is still sparse.
     Day 4 Litang-Batang-Mangkang
    Driving directions: Xinduqiao-Yajiang-Litang-Batang-Mangkang
    Live: Mangkang County
    Eat: Sichuan cuisine
     First stop: the mountain sea of ​​clouds
     From Xinduqiao, it began to turn over the mountains. In the morning, the mountains and the mists linger, and the clouds of gas rush between the mountains, like the clouds in the Niubei Mountain.
     Under the sea of ​​clouds, it cannot be measured.
     In the vicinity of the mountain, it is faintly able to distinguish the Panshan Highway and several monotonous people.
    Second stop: Buttercup Prairie
    After the “world high city” – Litang, it went to the prairie grassland.
     This is the first prairie seen on this road. Unlike Inner Mongolia and the previous Qilian prairie, the pasture is open, the yak is everywhere, the flowers and grass are shaded, and the distance is like the nine-curve and eighteen bends, making the whole grassland a paradise of nature.
    The mountain in the distance is like the lonely mountain in the “Lord of the Rings” – Lonely Mountain.
    Third stop: Haizishan
    Turning over one mountain after another, I came to Haizi Mountain, the “ice hat” of Daocheng Yading.
    Haizi Mountain is the largest ancient ice body relic on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, namely the “Dacheng Ancient Ice Cap”.嶙峋 石 及 及 及 及 及 及 及 及 及 及 及 及 及 , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , –Baidu Encyclopedia
     The first time I came to an altitude of 5000 or more, although I did not have any exercise, I still felt dizzy and nausea. This is probably the most serious and serious location in the entire itinerary.
    Fourth stop: Mangkang Night
     Seeing the star map like a grid, I suddenly understood the people who chased the stars. The tranquility of the night is only with the stars, it will be so memorable.
     Only after the second day of driving, has already exceeded the time expectations. We were exhausted when we encountered military vehicles transporting goods on the road and blocking the stoppage. However, the beauty came to me in such a casual way. When we complained about the long roads, we saw such a beautiful river at the top of the mountain. Everything is karma, and enjoying everything here is perhaps the best journey.
     Day 5 Zuogong-Basu
    Driving directions: Mangkang – Zuogong – Basu
    Live: Baju Hot Spring Hotel
    Eat: Sichuan cuisine
     From Mangkang, I saw a lot of people riding bicycles in Tibet and taking pictures, stopped and saw that so many cute lambs stopped on the hillside.
     I really want to take one.
     The view from the window is endless.
     Last year’s west tour of Qinghai, Gansu, catching up with the rainy season, there is a dark cloud on the top of every day. This time, the dark clouds are all far away, and the sky is always sunny.
     The drifting dark clouds not only did not wet our journey, but left a rainbow for us later.
     The mountain road that spreads in the distance is the legendary 72 turns.
     It is also unique in the way between the mountains and the mountains.
     Day 6 Ran-Bomi
    Driving directions: Basu-Ranwu (Ranwu Lake)-Qilong La Glacier-Bomi
    Live: Bomi
    Eat: Lulang Stone Chicken
     After passing through the watershed of the Nujiang River and the Yarlung Zangbo River, all the way to the small village. The terraces are full of green.
    First stop: Ranwu Lake
    The first stop of this trip is Ranwu Lake. I have seen photos of Ranwu Lake, and the snow-capped mountains are intertwined with blue lakes, so I am looking forward to Ranwu Lake. But the sky is not pleasing, because of the rain for a few days, the water surface of Wuhu becomes yellow, and the gloomy weather is slightly disappointing.
     If it is a blue lake, it must be more beautiful.
     The people here are short, but they are covered with thorny plants.
     The rape blossoms are the season.
    Leaving Ranwu Lake, I am going to go to the Mihei Glacier, but due to the road closure, the hard-boiled ones will not be completed. Finally, I reached an agreement and went to the Melong La Glacier near Medog.
    Second stop: Qianlong La Glacier
     Huge snow-capped mountains can be seen everywhere on the road.
     Because there is no fame, the five people on the mountain are shaking, and the huge space is unusually deserted.
    I walked around the mountain for a long time, and I slept several times in the middle. . . When you reach the top of the mountain, you can see the whole picture of the glacier. And the ink on the road in the distance, it seems that this is a way to enter the ink.
     We are really frustrated when we missed the Mito Glacier, but we can only comfort ourselves. The scenery is roughly similar. However, if you leave a little regret, you will have a way to keep coming.
     Day 7 Linzhi
    Driving directions: Bomi-Tongmai Tiansheng-Lulang-Niyanghe-Nyingzhi
    Live: Tangzhi Hotel, Nyingchi City
    Eat: Lulang Stone Chicken
     Once out of the Bomi, you can see a lot of snow-capped mountains on the road, with a blue sky, a little Swiss feeling.
     First stop: Lulang
     This place in Lulang knows that it is because of its stone pot chicken. This chicken stewed with Medeo, with mushroom and palm ginseng, has a taste.
     Although the town is not big, the snow mountain grassland is not lacking. In recent years, development has also developed into a “Davos” town in China. I don’t know what it will be like in a few years.
     There is an unknown small purple flower on the side of the road.
     There is a viewing platform between the car and the mountain, which can overlook the lake and mountains of the Niyang River.
     The reason why the Niyang River is known is because Zhao Yang is a tourist service center in the Niyang River. But when we saw the visitor service center, the small buildings of several colors with high saturation were completely painted white… In order to protect the small heart, we did not put a picture.
     Day 8 Mozhugong Card – Lhasa
    Itinerary: Linzhi-Mila Mountain-Mozhugongka-Lhasa
    Live: Lhasa Sun Island Hotel
    Eat: Local Nepalese meal
     Niutou beef noodles, black and white impermanence.
     Animals without white eyes are really cute.
     First stop: Tibetan home visit
     There are all kinds of flowers in front of the Tibetan people’s house, daisies, Tibetan roses… If I also have a courtyard, I must let it bloom in all seasons.
     The interior of the house is densely covered but still looks neat and clean.
     Drink a little milk tea, the taste is not strong. I remember reading books before, always saying that Tibetans don’t bathe and smell bad, but the house is stinky… But in fact, today’s Tibetans are still advancing with the times.
     The bustling ornamentation is very popular.
     Second stop: Mira Pass
     Second stop: Mira Pass
     At the Mira Pass, many people are selling the scriptures and writing a wish, the person will help you hang up the prayer flags.
     The prayer flags swaying in the wind, with too many people pinned on expectations.
     Day 9 Lhasa
    Itinerary: Potala Palace – Jokhang Temple
    Tickets: Tickets for the Potala Palace need to be booked 2 days in advance, if you don’t have an appointment, or if you are lazy like us, you can get a ticket through the travel agency. The number of tickets reserved online was 2,000, but a large part of it was stolen by the cattle, so the tickets went up all the way. A 200-piece Potala Palace ticket can be purchased for 500-1000 yuan. We passed the project of a Potala Palace + Jokhang Temple ticket plus tour guide, the cost is around 450. (With student ID card, Potala Palace ticket: 100 yuan.)
    Eat (strong push): Tibetan food – 1. Aro Cang Restaurant (Bajia Street); 2. Gangji Restaurant (near Jokhang Temple)
    Nepalese cuisine – the name of the **** is too long (beside the Lhasa cinema, it looks famous)
     At about 10:30, I visited the Potala Palace. At 9 o’clock, we went to the classic viewing platform of the Potala Palace, Yaowang Mountain. Charge 2 yuan / person. There is no one in Yaowang Mountain in the morning.The framing is very free.
     The Potala Palace is divided into the Red Palace and the White House. It is not allowed to take pictures. As for the value of 200 yuan, it is not worth returning to the fare. It varies from person to person.
     In fact, I think it is necessary to have a tour guide, especially for those of us who are completely unfamiliar with the Dalai Lama except Tsangyang Gyatso.
     Looking up to the palace, it is very majestic
     The Potala Palace is the highest palace in the world. When climbing the Potala Palace, be sure to stop and pay attention to rest, otherwise it is easy to be high.
    Due to the team ticket, the visit time is strictly limited to one hour. However, because I am not familiar with the incense and high, I am really enough for an hour.
    Second stop: Jokhang Temple
    The Jokhang Temple is famous for its 12-year-old golden body of Sakyamuni and has become the center of the Tibetan people’s heart.
     Like the Potala Palace, there are a large number of believers in the Jokhang Temple who are turning and worshipping.
    The golden dome is brighter than gold because it is copper-flowing gold.
     The Jokhang Temple has three floors, and this is the second floor, overlooking the courtyard. The third floor overlooks the Potala Palace.
     After visiting the Potala Palace and the Jokhang Temple, the rest is to go shopping, buy gifts and buy postcards to complete the task.
     The famous restaurant, Maggie Ami, symbolizes the little girl. The legend is that Cangyang Gyatso writes poetry. However, because there are too many people, the service is very bad. What dinner must be 68 yuan per person and no invoice, and, is also drunk. Decisively replaced by Gangji Restaurant next to Jokhang Temple.
     This is a mysterious realm of faith.
     The tenth day
    Itinerary: Lhasa – Yamdrok – Lhasa
    Live: Lhasa Sun Island Hotel
    Eat: Yam Zhuo’s wrong lakeside Tibetan food; Nepalese cuisine
     Today’s itinerary should be the easiest one. It takes only 2 hours to drive from Lhasa to Yamdrok. It starts at 10:00 in the morning and can go to Yamdrok at noon.
     Yam Zhuo, the Tibetan language meaning “lake of the swan”, is one of the three holy lakes in Tibet. The other two are Namco and Malang.
     Far from the sheep, the slender curved lake is covered with blue lake light.
     Because it is a holy lake, there are fewer people fishing, and a rare peace.
     Continue driving and go down to the lake, but the closer to the lake, the blue color will disappear.
    Third stop: Potala Palace in Yaowang Mountain
    Returning from Yanghu, I went to the Potala Palace at the night of Yaowang Mountain, but it is really sad that the Yaowang Mountain has already been crowded with people, and the tripod is blooming everywhere. . . It’s hard to squeeze into a position and wait for the night to come.
    On the last day of Lhasa, from dusk to complete darkness, the magnificent building of the Potala Palace stands silently until the end of time.
     The eleventh day Namco-Naqu
    Driving directions: Lhasa-Yangbajing-Dangxiong-Namuqin-Dangxiong-Naqu
    Live: Nagqu
    Eat: Sichuan cuisine
     Early departure from Lhasa, through the Yangbajing, far away from the Qingtang Gula Mountain, the elevation of this road has been high, and the weather has gradually turned from sunny to cloudy.
     Early departure from Lhasa, through the Yangbajing, far away from the Qingtang Gula Mountain, the elevation of this road has been high, and the weather has gradually turned from sunny to cloudy.
     On the Nam Co Observation Deck, overlooking the blue lake of Nam Co Lake.
     Down to the Nam Co Lake, it seems that the lake is close at hand, but it took a 30-minute walk along the lakeside road to reach the area where the couple stone is located.
     Once entered into Nam Co, it was attracted by a group of seabirds. Before I came, I only knew the classic yak photo of Nam Co, but I didn’t want to have so many awesome creatures here.
     Namco is very big, following the bird’s footsteps, and still coming to the spot where you can’t see the head. The birds here are always in groups, and they are captured in groups.
     Namco itself is like the sea in the south. If there are no yaks and no seabirds, the holy lake will also lose a lot.
     Day 12 Kunlun Mountain – Golmud
    Itinerary: Nagqu – Tanggula Mountain – Hoh Xil – Golmud
    Live: Golmud
    Eat: Golmud’s Roast Lamb
     Today or a day without words, one day in the car, the road ups and downs, soaring, so that I went to sleep all day long. . . The final map is bleak – 9 sheets. . . .
     Passing through the Tanggula Pass, it was blocked for 2 hours because of a car accident ahead. . . I woke up and it was a picture here. Wake up again, still picture here…
     Ok, very sad sunset in Hoh Xil. . . Say good Tibetan antelope…
     Day 13 Hoh Xil – Qinghai Lake
    Itinerary: Golmud – Qaidam Basin – Dulan – Qinghai Lake
    Live: Qinghai Lake
    Eat: Except for Qinghai Lake, I don’t want to say anything.
     After the baptism of the roast lamb the night before, we were able to start a new day with energy.
     The scenery of the Qaidam Basin is different from the previous experience, and the desert landscape is very recognizable.
     After entering Qinghai, I saw a cute short-legged sheep.
     In the distance is the Erlangjian Scenic Spot of Qinghai Lake. The scenic spot should be to collect the money, but there is a small hole next to the place where we live to enter the scenic spot. Although it only costs 10 yuan, it still feels very pit.
     After 30s exposure, the lake is as quiet as a painting.
     Day 14 Bohai
    Itinerary: Qinghai Lake – Bohai – Ruoergai
    Live: Zoige West Prairie Hotel
    Eat: hot pot skewers
    First stop: Qinghai Lake in the morning
    Early in the morning, the clouds on the lake broke the sunrise, but the grasslands were raging. Taking advantage of the dark clouds, I haven’t drifted over, so I’ll take a few shots. . .
     Escape, how to escape to get a telephoto. . .
     Bohai Lake, blame you too beautiful.
     The fifteenth day, Gail-Chengdu
    Itinerary: Zoige-Songpan Ancient City-Wenchuan-Chengdu
    Live: Chengdu Chunxi Road College Street
    Eat: cold pot skewers
    After writing the travel notes, it seems that the intersection of a task is also like the storage of a journey. The man in the mountain that water, the recorded pictures have become a fixed picture, can not record, become the knot in my heart that wants to swear but does not know how to open. I always want to take advantage of the young and spend a lot of time in exchange for a new journey, thinking that it is difficult to go, often go back and forth in a dramatic way. But no matter what, the first memory is always precious, because those beautiful eyes that capture the beauty will be the most beautiful moment. The distance will eventually be crossed, and only the journey will never stop. One day, Tibet, we will meet again.
