Today was a wonderful day. Leaving early we had about 40 kms on the motorway and then continued our driving on a 2 lane highway. These roads are probably better than most 2 lane roads in Australia or the USA but it was a winding road as we climbed to 3,960 metres.
What spectacular scenery. Rivers were still partially iced over and the mountains were snow capped. Yaks and sheep were the animals mostly seen and in addition the different modes of transportation and the way they were stacked made good photography.
Lunch of home made noodles at Ebao were delicious and better than our usual picnic lunch because of the cold!
At Ebao there were also two monuments for the Silk road…one in stone and one in metal. Both were very good.
Although I could describe the scenery I will let the photos do it for me…absolutely beautiful!
We arrived in Zhangye and by 4pm were able view the Buddhist temple with its large reclining buddha.
