Much of Tibet's scenery isn't actually that scenic.
Pit Stop, this is not the ideal place to have engine troubles.
Chinese-made, Tibetan-decorated trucks comprise the bulk of the traffic on the route.

Tsampas (roasted barley meal), dried mutton, and yak butter tea - the daily fare for most Tibetans, including our driver and guide.
