Final of Episode 1: Riding towards the Southern Rim, Tibetan Plateau!

iskk budak malaysia sesat ni...

on my way to litang

3 days ride from Kangding to Litang is tough but fun. On the first day i only did 46km. Couldnt take it anymore, i was climbing all the way. Oh and this time… i surrendered. i pushed my bike countless times! i even gave up pushing my bike! the road was so steep and i was at 4400m of altitude! I even had problem breathing at some point, so i stopped pushing and took an hour rest. The second day was better. mostly going up and down, some flat land. i did over 80km this time! but i was dangerously riding along the cloud level, couldnt see a thing, everything was so foggy and all out of a sudden, i saw a bus coming towards me! Visibility was poor while riding the cloud level. i was sooo… afraid! But i got excited, as ive seen more and more tibetan villages along my way. Im getting closer to her!

elemek... mcm mane ni...

The last day of my ride, is the ultimatum. Mostly going downhill, i was riding on average 40 km/hour, and only in around 4 hours, i covered easily 150 km! Passed by so many beautiful views, Im finally… in Tibetan Plateau! Finally today, I made it to Tibet, this place has been lifting up her skirt for me, teasing me for years since i was a kid, now shes in front of me… 1 on 1 :) Even on flat road, i easily cycled at 25-30 km/hour. At some point i calculated, i was only like 20km away from Litang, and it was only 2pm. Litang is getting nearer and nearer every minute, and i think, whats the rush? since its going mostly downhill, i took the advantage of staying off the road. Took a lot of landscape pictures and even those cute Tibetan kids.


2 tibetan boys and 1 melayu sesat

I also met a yak herder. He invited me to his tent, ate some tibetan food and drank some yak milk. mmmm… free lunch.. good energy source. This dude doesnt even speak mandarin, he speaks only tibetan, and I told him im from malaysia but…. im not really sure if he even know that malaysia is a country. Well i hope he knows. The younger brother (the one wearing yellow) was so amazed at me, he just couldnt get his eyes off me. Funny… and he even came and touched my skin. Maybe hed seen a few mat sallehs, but never see a brown boy from the southeast of asia? :) Im the only melayu sesat around here anyway. Hehe. i stopped many times after few hours of mostly downhill riding, i was so “jakun” with the landscape.

my sexy shadow!

1 think i realized being in the highland of tibet, since its summer now, the days are longer. It was already bright at around 5am, and still bright at 8.30pm. Mampus kalau kene puasa kat sini hehe. As i continue riding, i saw Litang from far. Ahhaaa.. finally.. after nearly 2 weeks of tough riding…. today, is victory for me. Looks like a sexy little tibetan town from far, i decided to spend time watching the sunset on the hills. Looked for a nice spot to rest, took photographs and enjoyed the view for hours waiting for sunset. It was a great moment, as i always love this kind of view. I stayed for hours on the hill watching the view while listening to my ipod until at 1 point, i fell asleep lol! The wind was cold and it was so refreshing! Im just short of 1 thing, it was a great moment, but i couldnt share it with anyone. Uhh… im all alone… and at this moment… i felt a little lonely…

    Now i can see your smiling face since your first post. Very sunny and innocent smile. Hehe. Your smiling face is full of self satisfaction.

    The Tibetans’ faces looked like tomato. Very natural red. I believe all Malaysian sexy gals are very jealous with their natural brushing.

  9. Bro, very happy for you, fellow brown man! Keep up the good ride. Trust me you’re not alone enjoying those views – we’re all watching from a distance. It impresses me that you are able to find the time and energy to blog, edit photos and upload them after your harsh, long rides but please keep them coming. I don’t think anyone would disagree that those pics are awesome man. Take it easy..

  10. Salam Zahariz,
    Read your post in PhotoMalaysia.com. I am awed! I congratulate you for taking on this adventure and as someone said, impressed too that you still find time and the energy to edit photos and blog. Indeed those pictures are lovely; and through them, you take us on this journey with you. Thank you!
    I wish you the very best in your journey and may Allah protect you throughout.

  11. nationwide dsara hgths – wei punn! hehe tq man.. no worries.. more coming soon. Tibet is just the beginning.
    azhar – wei serious takde dowh. aku rasa awek2 semua gi city la. Tmpt ni semua cowboy dowh.
    khuzai – hoi khuzai! :) Ahh nice to hear from u old friend. Thx for ur nice words. Maybe one day kalau aku plan nak ride from corner to corner of australia crossing the desert, we meet up ah? i get addicted to cycling now man its the best way to explore the world in my opinion. rather than taking the boring bus ride from city to city, i prefer to ride from village to village with my humble bike mate…
    roziah – thanks for visiting my blog and ur motivating words. yeah blogging is the only way for me to connect myself and home. China is amazing, even in tibet, area2 gunung pun ada internet connection.

    • Bro, Australia might be interesting too, you can easily cover another 10,000km if you go around OZ. I still enjoy my commute on my humble bike to and from work (a mere 20km) some days of the week. But I keep thinking about what you’re doing..dude, you must be an ironman with some guts! For me 20km dah pancit wei..Wah hebat la China and Tibet punya internet connectivity – I think Oz pun tak sehebat. Cheerio.

  12. area2 gunung pun ada internet connection? Malaysia kne work hard then. where wil u go after tibet?

  13. Uhmm.. next will be Shigatse or Shannan? ^^ yes the view is amazing.. you r amazing too.. hahaha.. you are now almost the middle of Pakistan and Chengdu. good.. hehe.. =)
