Xi Ning airport, taken a flight from Xi'an to Xi Ning to begin our road trip to Tibet.

从西安飞去西宁,开始我们去西藏的遥远路程。

This youth hostel have a large space from leisure activity, with washing machine and drying area. They do organize day trip to nearby attractions like 青海湖.

The dorm room for 6 person is a bit too packed with little space.

这家青旅环境不错,很大的活动空间,也有洗衣设备。六人间空间非常狭窄。

XiNing city.

晚间的西宁市。

The boiled mutton and naan is pretty good.

手抓羊和烤馕味道不错。羊肉串便宜小串,但还是大串的比较好吃。迟来了,手抓饭没了。

日月山, with two small temple on top of the hill, and a new temple and statue for Princess Wen Cheng.

本来只是山顶上的两座庙亭,后来扩建了文成公主庙和雕像。

Food is reasonably good, the main complaint is the big pot chicken with too little chicken (we are fairly certain we got cheated).

这家餐馆本来菜色还蛮不错,就是大盆鸡被他坑了(原本的一只鸡只有四分一)。

A small town stop for lunch.

吃午饭的小镇。

青海湖, it was not spectacular as the weather isn't great either.

很大的湖,很可惜天气暗淡,没有很朝气的感觉。一望无际像大海。

This hotel near the lake is pretty nice. The hostel bed is pretty big with spacious room, while some private room have full glass view of the lake.

蛮舒适和漂亮的客栈。装潢优雅,大厅有网络电视,落地玻璃望着大湖,有水机。六人间也很宽敞,床位也很宽。标间也有落地玻璃望着大湖。

Another satisfying Sichuan lunch.

不错的川菜。

Small village of HeiMaHe.

黑马河,靠近湖。

This place should be spectacular if the weather is good, but sadly the it rains and freaking cold.

Should bought the shoes cover near the entrance and only wear then when you enter the salt lake water near the end of the path.

天色不太好,积雪没什么阳光。一条长长的步道沿着火车路,走到尽头应该可以走入浅浅的湖水拍张天空之镜的照片。

很可惜天气太冷,景区内没厕所,多位队友尿急都转头了。有点小惋惜。

小贴士: 在门口买个包鞋袋,方便下湖拍照。

Dulan, interesting name for a small town.

很有趣的名字,都兰。

The city of Golmud

格尔木市区。

This hotel pretty good value for money.

汉庭酒店不错,划算。

Decent meal.

不错,终于摆脱川菜了。

Decent lunch.

午饭时间。

From KeKeXiLi to AnDuo, it's a long journey of over 600km (about 18h) by car. This journey is way too long to be done in a single day.

从可可西里去安多的路途上。全程600多公里(超过18小时的路程),实在太辛苦了,理应分开两天的路程。

从可可西里过来,途径唐古拉山口(5000公尺以上),高山症开始发作了。我开始头疼没胃口,我老婆呕吐也没胃口。
