Easy Going to Sakya

After the very long riding day yesterday and the rough roads we decided to get up late and take our time going to Sakya since it was only a 3 hour ride on good roads.

On the way we looked back at Mt. Everest and took a picture before going through a pass 5250 m (17480 ft) above sea level. Although Ali and Husain wanted to stop to take a picture, I decided not to since I was already having trouble breathing and didn’t want to put myself in a worse condition.

We then descended until we stopped at a gas station to fill up. Once we were done a group of bikers some on BMWs noticed us and rode in to the gas station to say hello. It turned out to be an edelweiss tour through Tibet so we started our biker chat.

We then went on to Sakya, parked the bikes at the hotel, and then visited Sakya Monestary.

Unfortunately internet access to our blog has become difficult here, and so has access to youtube which is the reason for uploading the videos on the blog only.
