A Texan in Tibet - Riding Day 7 Plan

"If you've got a plan, it's not just like a pipe dream. You have a step-by-step list of things to do to get to your goal."
-Nipsey Hussle

Lhasa to Sakya

Currently, my plan is to backtrack towards Shigatse, but skip the Simi La and Karo La passes and traverse a northern route.  This route from Lhasa to Shigatse City is roughly 280km/174 miles, but I plan to bypass the city premises and continue on the outskirts, heading another 110km/68 miles southwest towards Sakya, which sits at 4,025 meters/13,200 feet elevation.  The entire day will only be about 255 miles.  I'll find my lodging and see how much time I have left to see the local sights.  The interactive map can be found here.
