We also met Tang Guo Chao who was riding from Guanzhou city in the province of Canton. A native Chinese man, he was on a bit of an adventure himself crossing the country on a BMW F650GS with another friend. He didn't speak any english so our trusty interpreter Vincent talked with him about his journey. Great to meet another traveler on the road
We also got our first glimpse of Mt Everest (known as Qomolongma to the Tibetans). What a sight. You really can't describe the grandeur of seeing something so prominent and so legendary for the first time. It was truly a sight to behold. Now we get ready to head to Everest basecamp.
