The plan was, take a 5-hour car ride to a lake, walk around for a bit, then another 5 hours back.
There’s not too much to report on, besides being in a car for 10 hours. After the first few snow capped mountains and herds of sheep, it started getting repetitive. Human interaction included, someone trying to charge me 2 RMB because I urinated ‘next’ to the bathroom, which was essentially a large concrete box. And also when we arrived at the lake, swarms of young people and children tried to get the tourists to ride a horse or a yak. I did manage to get on a yak.
It was nice, but not a whole lot I can remember or want to remember, as I had a cold, and when your nose, ears, and sinus is blocked and you add changing pressure as altitude increases a massive head ache results.
