CHN Part 2: over the roof of the World
this kind of fruits i found along Taklamakan and they accompanied me for a long time...
one of my Foods on the Road
this Time it´s something with mushrooms
the chinese invented an evaluation system for restaurants... i always eat in the C-Class
Somewhere around here i got lost... Tunnel leading into the Mountains
brandnew Highway into the Nowhere
with the altitude the buddhism got more and more visible
and on top of the Pass the Prayerflags were flying
from there the road led straight down to...
...the Donggeicuona Lake
in the Afternoon it started snowing
when i arrived in the evening it was winter
the next mornig everything was white
there is more traffic on the snowy piste
alone in the white and cold nature
i reached until here and not further
my servants, the buddhist monks picked up me and my bike
in the Back of the car it was narrow and cozy
Roadcleaning in Darlag
a religious Shop in the City
A Monk with a picture of the Dalai Lama
on the Basar of Darlag
the newer Part of the Town, colorful but uniform
The workshop where i got the innertubes, the whole neighborhood came together
A proud Tibetian next to the Road
also here: the Kommunist reaches his hand to the Tibetians
bringing the Yaks home
until this moment i thought my bike is overloaded... chinese biker on hs way to Lhasa
a tibetian Woman
another Pass on my way
with a nice view to the next ascent on my way down...
Mens circle on the way up to the next Pass
and a nice but rough ride down again
Prayerwheels in the Monastery
the Village and it´s Monastery
the way led me out of the Valley
the gigantic Stupa Construction-Site...
...and an old Temple next to it
The view down on my way to the next Pass included some Yaks
on the Top again!
Nice view in the surrounding Mountain Ridge
and back into the Valley...

...and the following descent
spontanously i got some help from this guys

A Stupa in a Monastery in Aba City
Scenes from the Roads...
...lively little City Aba
Sunrise over the River the next morning
Enjoying the view short before the daily pass
from there i got the view to the next barrier infront of me
This ridge shed the yangtze from the yellow river
always snowy peaks infront of me
a village next to the road
an old socialistic workers camp
typical tibetian House in the Valley before Wenchuan

Bye Bye to an old friend. My front Tyre left me after 24500km...
a touristical tibetian village...
in the roads of wenchuan
next day the weather got dizzy and the road follows the river
a typical chinese toilet... you squat transversly over the ditch...
this point i could circumvent
here it got tricky
and here it was the end of cycling
infront of Dujijangyan the River was stowed
the Nature was intense green now
first view to Dujijangyan
my first chinese Pagoda
Disneylandlike but a little bit fucked up... on my way to Cheng Du
the Roads of Cheng Du illuminated in the Night
