Memories of Tibet (16) : Heavy Snow In Saga County
At about seven in the morning, the sky was still as black as ink. Everyone moved from the bed to the car. Except for the driver, everyone began to sleep unconscious again.
In the dream, there was another left rush and right rush in the dark, and then we got on the roller coaster with left shaking and right shaking. Everyone's head would turn left and right for a while, as if it had been said. When the sound of the wind was heard, people began to wake up one after another. The parked cars were still shaking and shaking as they were yesterday
It's more than eight o'clock in the morning, and it's still dark. The sun seems to want to sleep in the mountains and refuse to come out Everyone is afraid of the cold. They hide in the car and catch up for a while. The driver found a steep slope near the viewing platform. After driving up, he found a larger viewing platform.
The driver said it was the first time he came here, and we were all excited. The sun slowly peeped out, but it was frustrating that the snow mountains in the distance were covered by thick black clouds, which was really disappointing
People against the cold wind took a few photos, had to leave angrily.
When I passed baiba village, I didn't see the children I met when I came here. They may still be sleeping in
Outside baiba village, the team led by Longge didn't go to Ali, but our destination was saga County, so we parted ways.
We go back to G318 and head for saga. Near xiamude, we turn to County Road 214, which is not flat and bumpy. But there is a beautiful lake - pekuco in front of us. On the way to County Road 214, we can also overlook the Xisha Bangma peak with an altitude of 8027 meters. Xisha Bangma peak is the lowest of the 14 8000 meter peaks in the world, and the only 8000 meter peak completely located in China.
The farther you go, the more clouds there are on the top of the mountain. It's really not beautiful. It seems that the fog in the mountain is boundless and you can't see anything. After driving for a period of time, you look carefully. It's snowing
Looking at the hot sun above us, we can't believe our eyes. We can see the sun in the sky and the mountain opposite us. After repeated confirmation and exclamation, we find that the road tends to snow! In the next hour, we experienced the alternation of cloudy and sunny days several times. When we arrived at pekuco, the black cloud that rolled over our head just now didn't know when it was drifting
Pekuco is the largest lake in Xigaze area. Its water is mainly supplied by precipitation and runoff of ice and snow melting water. The clear water reflects the blue sky in the sun, reflecting the refreshing blue. Standing in the middle of the road, looking at the snowing mountains on the left and the sunny lake on the right, I can't help but marvel at the uncanny work of nature.
Leaving pekuco, we found that we had to cross the snow mountain to reach saga. The snow is just falling. There is no rutting on the road. The narrower the road is, the driver is holding a sweat in his hand, carefully slowing down and moving forward a little bit.
All the old drivers know how dangerous it is. If they don't pay attention to it, they will slide into the valley. I dare not sleep any more. I will help the driver to keep a close eye on the road conditions. Finally, we cross the mountain and see that there is a larger white snow in front of us. The whole saga county has only left a few threads in the snow, which is inconspicuous.
Xiao Li and Xiao Wang in the car, who have never seen heavy snow since they came from Shenzhen, excitedly shout to get out of the car and go to have a snowball fight. It took them half an hour to enjoy themselves.
When entering saga County, it was only 4:00 p.m., and the snow on the road had been cleared by snowplows. Everyone was frozen to hide in the hotel quickly, the unprofitable cover up the quilt and go to sleep, even lazy to have dinner.
Saga county is located at the gate of Ali district. The driver's master is worried that the road behind is full of snow. He didn't expect the snow today. There are still many mountains to climb behind. The worst result is that all of them have become snow mountains, so he keeps brushing the weather forecast. And we heard that he said, even more worried about snow than he did, which means that we should stop at Ali's door? Not depressed!
