Unusual Places in Gyantse
Kharola Glacier
The landscape of Tibet did not stop amazing us over and over, after being absorbed in the contemplation of the beauty of Lake Yamzhog Yumcog thought that nothing could surprise me in the short distance that separated us from the village of Gyantse. Just a few miles from that lake, at the foot of the mountain pass named Kharo The (Kharola), stood a big silhouette of a glacier. We are approximately 5500 meters high and there is a magical landscape surrounding us, ocher and green colors of the huge peaks that surround us in contrast with the whiteness and bluish slopes of the peak on which the ice slides. The glacier peak whose magnitude is too great for the lens of my old Pentax, rises to 7191 meters of altitude. The cattle graze alien to our enthusiasm and pastoralists slip brazen as anonymous characters expensively take pictures at the foot of the glacier and seek to immortalize the greatness. It is impossible to accurately portray paradise, at least for mere mortals ...... The beauty of the Himalayas holds literally short of breath, the sunlight falling on the ice of the glacier blind our vision and tanned the skins of inhabitants of these latitudes. We left the glacier and made our way to Gyangtse.
Unusual Places in Hainan
Pole of Inaccessibility
This experience is really from a friend of mine that went on this trip. It all started in the village of Bulin, the closest human settlement to Elisen Dzoosoton Desert, Xinjiang Province, China, where according to recent studies, the Pole of Inaccessibility of Eurasia is located. The nearest coast in a straight line is 2,648 miles from the sea, according to some studies. We decided to head to Hainan, one of the most beautiful coasts in China. The small village of Bulin is also near the border with Mongolia and as such, many of their customs and rituals are of Mongolian origin. 7 of our peers took the journey with us. It turned out to be a major route of 11 days and more than 7.5000 km across China to reach the beaches of Hainan where finally, the people traveling with us got to see the sea for the first time in their lives. Quite the treat for the inexperienced traveler. You can take a look here at the website below: http://bit.ly/pvFmvk
