Crossing a frozen river

Crossing a frozen river

On the way to the Qangringngoinza Massif. Crossing a semi-frozen river in the middle of the Chang Tang in 2003. This time it was ok to cycle on the thin ice. At other times the ice broke.

Re: hey Corax...

Sometimes I saw real mirages. Once it was really weired. I saw a truck very far away and it was there for a long time. All of a sudden it was gone.

Re: Wonderful scene!!

Thanks Kenzo!
I have not seen the article myself yet as I have been travelling for a long time. I'm glad you liked it.
The Chang Tang is for sure my favorite area on earth. So different, so untouched and so beautiful!

Re: Hm, where are ypu now?

At the moment I'm in Lhasa, Tibet resting after about 70 days in the wilderness in the north. Have summited 9 peaks so far and cycled quite a bit (3300km), so now I need some time for rest. May stay here for more climbing or I may go to Argentina.
And, yes, I'm having a lot of fun :-)

Re: Hm, where are ypu now?

I will add some mountain and route pages soon, but I just have to find a place where they have a photo-editing program so I can make the images smaller.

Some places seem to be in direct connection with one's soul. I've never been there, but this picture means so much to me : remoteness, immensity, freedom and beauty. Thanks.
