As of March 31, 2022, 57 Sichuan Tibet service station will form teams, equipment, buy cars and rent cars Accommodation team scanning plus wechat tip: today’s end point is a junction of 317 Sichuan Tibet North line from Changdu to 318 Sichuan Tibet south line.

Most of the pilgrims are on the north line, but after Qamdo, they basically transfer to national highway 318 to Lhasa via Bangda.

It is estimated that the geographical environment of the north line after Qamdo is worse than that of 318.

Starting from Qamdo, it turns to 318.

The South Sichuan Tibet line has good scenery and relatively low altitude.

The key is that the upwind is not as big as that of Naqu.

The reason why Benben thinks so is that when I rode 317, I began to contact the pilgrimage group from dege, but basically disappeared after Qamdo.

When I rode 318, I began to contact the pilgrimage group from Ranwu, especially from Ranwu to Bomi.

You yell at zasidler and a group of people reply to you.

Highland barley is the main food, fuel and livestock feed for Tibetan residents in China.

It is also the raw material for the production of beer, medicine and health products.

Qingke is a crop with strong adaptability and strong adaptability to cold and barren.

Generally, it is sown from March to May and harvested from July to September.

The general production period of highland barley is 100-130 days, and the seedling stage can withstand a low temperature of about – 10 ℃.

The flowering period was not damaged at 9 ℃.

The milk ripening stage can still resist the low temperature of – 1 ℃.

In the alpine region where the average temperature of the warmest month is close to 10 ℃ and the daily average temperature is higher than 5 ℃ for only 120 days, highland barley can still grow and develop normally.

The figure below shows the end of July and the figure below shows Zanba at the end of August, which is actually highland barley fried noodles.

Zanba is the staple food of Tibetans.

Tibetans have Zanba for three meals a day.

Zanba is rich in nutrition.

Its nutritional value is higher than that of rice, corn and general wheat.

It has high calorific value and can satisfy hunger and keep out the cold.

Zanba is easy to carry and suitable for herdsmen’s life.

In alpine regions like Tibet, especially in the severe winter, there is an extreme lack of plants that can be used as fuel.

Cow dung just fills this gap.

They will spread cow dung into cakes and stick it on the wall to dry naturally, and then pile it up.

The air is thin and the climate is dry.

These conditions greatly meet the conditions for the rapid drying of cow dung, and the fuel generated by cow dung has no taste.

Cow dung, as the main fuel, has its own characteristics and advantages.

First of all, the burning point of cow dung is very low.

Even on the plateau with low oxygen content, a newspaper can ignite it.

It’s early to have lunch in tiantuo town 40 kilometers away from Zuogong, because there are still 64 kilometers later, so we’d better have lunch in tiantuo village 62 kilometers away.

When the wind goes down to the Sancha estuary in Meiyu Township, the headwind will become smaller, and there may be hail on this section of the road.
