There are many dangerous roads in Tibet, most of them are in Qamdo. Nagqu is the highest and Qamdo is the most dangerous. Seventy-two turns are really not too dangerous. It is famous because it was at 318. I went to the east of Zuogong County a few days ago. The risk in Ba Township is not worse
The road conditions are good. Although there are many corners, it is still easier to drive. Just pay more attention to the opposite car. It’s still nice to see the panorama at the observation deck
Driving into Tibet by self-driving is far more difficult than imagined. The main reason is that the road conditions and the degree of traffic jams are unpredictable, so the itinerary should not be too in a hurry, otherwise it will be in vain. Passing by Qamdo, you can replenish it and appreciate the local customs.
The ninety-nine abductions at Yelashan, I didn’t understand it, right? In short, it is just turning around, the road is actually easy to walk, it looks steep, and it is taller than the wall hanging of Hefeng, and it is not difficult to drive.
Nujiang 72 is located between Changdu Bangda and Basu on the southern Sichuan-Tibet line. This road is also called "Sichuan-Tibet 99 Bend". From the lowest point of 3100 meters above sea level, it climbs all the way to the highest point, Yela Mountain Pass, which is 4651 meters above sea level, and then descends to Bangda Town at 4100 meters above sea level and is about 12 kilometers long. You can take a panoramic view in the middle of the day when it is fine. As the sun sets in the west, thick cumulus clouds suppress the peaks and peaks. Under the sun's rays, colorful light and colors are reflected, highlighting the great beauty of the pre-Tibet area.
Yela Mountain (Nujiang Mountain)-located in Basu County, Qamdo Prefecture, Tibet Autonomous Region. The pass is at G318, with an elevation of 4658 meters. After crossing the pass from Bangda Town, which is 4120 meters away, there is the famous "72 Nujiang River", also known as "Ninety-Nine Roads". These turns are sharp and steep, but most of them are U-turns. Each crutches were piled up with 20 to 30 centimeters thick mud, and the mud rolled up by the wheels of the car covered the sky. If you are not careful, Nujiang will be waiting for you below. It is daunting and can be called a miracle on Chinese highways! Going further down is the Nujiang Bridge, and it didn't take long to pass through to Baxu County, which is 3260 meters above sea level.
Some people say that there are more than 99 turns. I haven't counted how many turns there are, and I focused on driving. The road conditions are very good now, as long as you concentrate, it shouldn't be difficult to pass this section. There is a viewing platform in the mountain pass, you can see the whole landscape very clearly.
Originally the itinerary was to live in Zuogong, but Lao Ye said that Zuogong’s conditions were too poor and it was better to live in eight places, so he only killed eight places in Zuogong. 19:00 The straight mountain road has stunning beauty, such as pastoral oil painting colors, parking breaks, and a stiff body for activities. I think this place should be near Yazhong Village, Tiantuo Town, Zuogong County, because there happens to be a lama on the road, and Zuogong Temple is in Yazhong Village, near the G318 line. At 20:12, we arrived at the Yela Pass. As we had to rush to the 72nd Road of Tianlu before the sun went down, we didn't get off the bus for a tour, just two clicks and we passed. At 20:22, I finally came to the well-known "Seventy-two Turns of Tianlu", also known as "72 Turns of Nujiang River" and "Nine-nine Turns of Sichuan-Tibet Line". Describe this section of road with many bends and steep. Standing on the viewing platform is looking down at the "Sixty-two Turns of Tianlu", and you can deeply feel its incredible magnificence, steepness, excitement and grandeur! Suddenly remembered a famous saying "Man will conquer the sky", how appropriate and heroic it is to use it here (⊙ o ⊙ )! You can feel how great the motherland is when you cross the Sichuan-Tibet line. Although she still has shortcomings of one kind or another, you will undoubtedly be touched by her. This is the contemporary Great Wall and the guarantee of the territorial integrity of the motherland. In the vast world, the setting sun went down, and the distant mountains were dyed a piece of gold, which looked extremely dazzling. After the tour was good, we began to embark on the "Tian Lu 72 Road" to experience her thrills. Unfortunately, because the twilight was dark, we couldn't really appreciate it, but felt that there were too many sharp turns and the speed of the car was unusually slow. "Tianlu 72daoguai" is the Nujiang Grand Canyon, and then the Nujiang Bridge. There are heavily guarded and no parking is allowed to take pictures, but fortunately it passed smoothly. The only pity is that it is too late to appreciate the Nujiang Grand Canyon. . This is the first mistake on the Sichuan-Tibet line. You should stay in Zuogong for one night and set off the next morning, so that you can enjoy the Nujiang moat.
It's worth seeing. The road is not straight and there are many people who check in
