English Narrative

06-Aug-2007 -- 这个点是今年暑假骑车去珠峰路上探访的。头天晚上住在热萨,也就是大约在318国道4998公里处,早晨雨后从旅店出来,在318国道5000公里处留影。

从那继续前行11公里,沿路查看GPS,到了318国道5011公里里程碑th ,恰好也是开始盘山道的一个拐弯处,GPS指示此点离CP还有约7.3公里。

  拍照后继续骑行,当天我们的目标是到拉孜。

English Narrative

06-Aug-2007 -- This visit occurred when we were riding our bicycles along the road to Mt Everest during this year's summer vacation. We stayed in Resha the night before, near the 4,998 km marker of national route 318. Following some early morning rain, we set out from the guesthouse, stopping to take a photo at the 5,000 km marker.

We continued riding along the road for another 11 km, watching the GPS, until we reached the 5,011 km marker, just at the turnoff to Pan Mountain. The GPS indicated the CP was still 7.3 km away.

After taking some photos, we continued riding. That day, our goal was to reach Lazi.
