Journey to Ngari

The big trip this summer was out to Western Tibet, out to Ali along the northern route and then to Mt Kailash down the southern route back to Lhasa, for a total of 5000km. I've done the route before and and it's perhaps the most beautiful drive in Tibet, if not Asia. Managed to visit a couple of new places for me - Gurugyam Bon monastery and the ruins of the ancient troglodyte city of Shangshung in the Khunglung (Garuda) valley. That was very cool and surprisingly easy to get to.

Big thanks to Andre and Alyson for a great trip.
