China/Tibet 2013-073-Along Tibetan roads



Sept. 2013

Enjoying Tibetan landscapes along the road, until our car's engine gets out of order. You can see our hopeless driver looking for a way to repair it. We'll finally spend 5 hours at 4800m altitude, looking for some oxygen to breathe from the air. That was quite difficult to find a way to go back to the nearest village, find a very local tibetan restaurant where we had some yak soup and very smelly tibetan butter tea. Walking up to the nearest police station was something very difficult to do at such altitude when you don't spend your life time in mountains like that.
Appréciant les paysages Tibétains jusqu'à ce que notre véhicule tombe en panne. Vous pouvez voir notre conducteur désespéré songeant à un moyen de réparation. Nous passerons finalement 5 heures à 4800m d'altitude, essayant d'obtenir un peu d'oxygène à respirer de l'air environnant. Il fut particulièrement difficile de trouver un moyen de redescendre jusqu'au village le plus proche ou nous avons mangé dans un restaurant très local (soupe de yak et un thé tibétain très odorant. Remonter ensuite vers le poste de police le plus proche fut très difficile à une telle altitude pour qui ne passe aps sa vie dans de telles montagnes.
