Xiangcheng to Yunnan province
After Xiangcheng we followed the river and started to go up. The tarmac finished and we had a 100km section of rough gravel. A very bumpy downhill to where we stayed at the Blue river Bend Hotel.
Grasslands to Hezuo
We cycled on along small Tibetan and Chinese villages. We past a monastery where people were coming together and visited Milarepa palace.
Gubeikou to Jinzhou 2
The road was becoming even more flat but still sometimes we had a small hill. We made it to Jinzhou fast and spent the afternoon looking for a place where we could stay.
Urumqi to Tarkshken
The road from Urumqi to Tarkshken in the winter as mix of cultures and nature. Camels is the big thing here :)
