Yunnan-tibet border - where the mountains meet the sky

We woke up in a wonderland, drank a cup of black tea and looked out over the mountains.

Then we pack my bags and start the day's journey again.

The beauty of Laomudeng is always fascinating.

But the call of the snowy plateau drives fufeng brothers to continue to explore.

We are going north along the Nu river.

The Nu river, flowing from the Tibetan plateau, is turbulent.

We rode our motorcycle, along with the sound of the river, all the way forward.

Tunnels and roads along the nu river have long been built, giving us a good day's cycling experience.

The stretch of mountains and winding roads seemed endless.

After many turns, we finally came to "first bay".

The real challenge is about to begin.

The inn where we rested was located by the nu river highway, with beautiful scenery.

We had a pleasant chat over tea.

It is recognized that the most difficult route to enter Tibet -- the third inspection line, which has 220 kilometers of non-paved road from chawarong to chayu.

The plateau environment is in the snowmelt season, so it is necessary to pay attention to the quicksand and falling rocks on the mountain.

With a large army and no supply points in between, it was a difficult task to get a large team through safely and smoothly.
