Riding the beautiful prairie sky road

Author: A few years ago, when Blue Sky rode through Zhangbei County, Zhangjiakou City, it was lucky to ride the Grassland Sky Road, one of the ten most beautiful highways in China.

Her beauty is still unforgettable.

This road, like a dragon, sits on the top of mountains, winding and undulating, stretching for more than 100 kilometers.

The blue sky connects with it and the white clouds echo with it.

Riding on the sky road is like walking on the clouds.

Therefore, I am deeply impressed that the Grassland Sky Road is about 320 kilometers long and will be completed in August 2019 (starting from Zhangchengjie, passing Chicheng County, Zhangbei County, Chongli District, Guyuan County, Wanquan District and Shangyi County, and ending at the border between Hebei and Inner Mongolia).

This is the final line extending from the original Zhangbei Grassland Sky Road to the east and west.

However, the classical section of Grassland Sky Road is located at Huapi Mountain in Chongli County in the east and Yehu Mountain in Zhangbei County in the west, with a total length of about 100 kilometers.

Generally speaking, the prairie sky road actually refers to this section.

The original name is Zhangbei Grassland Tianlu.

A friend may ask why this section of road is called Grassland Sky Road? This is because this section of road covers Zhangbei Grassland at the edge of Xilingol Grassland.

It is a grassland, so it is called Grassland Sky Road.

Why is it called Tianlu? This is because this region is also the Yanshan Mountains, with a relatively high altitude, averaging 1500 meters above sea level.

Many roads are up to 2000 meters above sea level, and the blue sky and white clouds are within reach.

Although this altitude is insignificant compared with the Qinghai Tibet Plateau, it is not low in the north.

The whole road is at this altitude, connecting with the blue sky and echoing with the white clouds, as if in the sky.

Therefore, this road has been given a beautiful name – Grassland Sky Road! The scenery along the Grassland Skyway is very beautiful.

One of the most impressive is the sea of flowers along the way.

Wild poppies, alfalfa, potato flowers, sunflowers and rape flowers, all kinds of colors of flowers are dotted on the grassland, colorful, all over the mountains, swaying in the wind, as if you were in a fairy tale.

The other is wind power tower wind turbine, commonly known as windmill, which spreads along the sky road one by one, taking up the whole line of sight.

White windmills, blue sky and white clouds, as well as green grasslands complement each other, forming one of the most classic landscapes of Tianlu.

Another is the terraced fields in the northern part of China.

Terraced fields are one of the rare sceneries in the north.

If it is not the prairie sky road, you may get to the south to see the terraced fields.

I don’t know how far you have to go to see such a beautiful scenery.

In autumn, the terraces in Northern China are the most interesting.

In addition to the colorful colors and crisscross lines, there are also various crops that are stacked in stacks, piles and rows after harvest.

This is also a place with stories.

The scenery here is real and not repaired.

The terraced fields lie quietly in the embrace of nature, breathing the purest air; Bathed in the most brilliant sunshine; Enjoy the atmosphere of peace with the world.

Of course, there are many beautiful sceneries that can’t be counted, so I won’t introduce them here.

For riding, the prairie sky road is difficult.

Many sections are steep, and you can only push a bike.

Sometimes, downhill is like a free fall, which is not easy.

I only rode the classic road section, about 100 kilometers from Yehu Mountain to Huapi Mountain.

As for whether to ride the whole journey depends on personal preferences and interests.

I finished cycling in early September, 19 (heavy).

I started from Zhangbei County at 6:00 in the morning, arrived at Yehu Ridge first, and then arrived at Huapi Ridge at about 8:00 in the evening along the Grassland Sky Road.

At this time, it was completely dark.

The whole journey is 117km, the climbing is 60km, and the cumulative climbing is 2460m.

It takes 10 hours for cycling and nearly 14 hours for the whole journey.

According to data analysis, it is easier to ride from Huapi Mountain to Yehu Mountain.

Passed by riders, when passing by the Grassland Sky Road, you may want to experience the Grassland Sky Road specially.

She will surely leave you an indelible memory! The twists and turns, rivers and mountains, deep ravines, meadows, cattle and sheep, and spectacular landscapes show a landscape of Bailibatou, which will surely accompany you throughout your life! WeChat dlzjj123 Blue Sky, 2023.01.06..
