We usually travel by train, by tour bus... but do travels by self driving will be another feeling...
If you've been working for a long time, you must be want to have a totally relaxed travel out of office to breath the fresh air, to see the something which you can not see in the modern cities, want to try something new,and try to find back yourself...
I've joined in an Off-road club,and we had a nice off-road tour in Kham area.
We set off from Chengdu, passing by Ya'an, drove throught Mt. Erlang tunnel.
From left to right: Mr. Liu, Mr & Mrs Xie, Heinrich, Karin, Thomas, Sunny and a couple (we met them on the road). Forget to put myself in... What a pity!
And passed by Luding to visited the famous Luding Iron Bridge. The bridge built with several iron chains, and put wooden boards on them... cool feeling.And that river is called Dadu River. First day, we overnighted in Kangding, which is called the Hometown of Kangding Love Song.
Another day, we go to Jiagenba, it is a remote place, few people living there, everything looks that quiet.
We had a short break here. In the noon time, the weather was very good.
We like driving in these places, like a horse enjoys running on a wide grassland.
It's Longdeng grassland.
Even it was Sept, it snows in the plateau area. Strong flowers in the snow.
After seeing too many skyscrapers in the cities, I felt very relax in these beautiful sceneries.
Travel by ourselves driving will be much more enjoyable than take the tour bus, we could stop time by time to see what we want to see.
The weather changes greatly, the most important thing is to bring enough warm clothes.
We've did full preparetions, haha, making Chinese tea in the open air. Just enjoy!
Have a try of the Chinese cuisine cooked by foreign friends!
Different travel has different scenery, but only one feeling--happiness keeps the same from the beginning till the end!
