Distance: 98 km
Time: 8'41"
Avg: 11.2 k/h
Max: 24.7 k/h
Total: 9412 km

Riding hours: 0920 - 1850

Down 28 km to the Jinshajiang (upper Yangtze), then the rest of the day upriver, the road cut into the gorge-cliff, sometimes high, high above the river, sometimes coming down almost to meet it.

At Zhu Ba Long there is a wooden hut luguan (accommodation), next to the G318 (Sichuan-Tibet highway, southern branch) bridge across the river to Tibet.

Hard, unsealed riding all day.

Here's the Jinshajiang in action:
