:: Xinjiang Day 20 - 烏老木齊--一號冰川 Xinjiang Day 21 - departed 烏老木齊 Urumqi

2007 Aug 10:
Our last trip day for the trip. 
Through the 216 National Highway 国道, we headed to the No.1 Glacier 一號冰川.  It took at least a couple of hours to go through the mountain to reach there.  Then we had to hire some motorbikes to go up some small mountain paths for the 冰川, the world's closest glacier to the city.  The motorbike drive sure was very dangerous. 
After that we intended to come back to the 大巴札 again for shoppings but that was when my accident happened.  My foot was run over by the Mitsubishi Pajero 4WD that Master Guo 郭师傅 drives. 
I was then sent to the local hospital and had X-ray and examined.  My left toe was bleeding but luckily there were no fracture.  So our plan changed and we directly headed back to dinner and lodged at Master Guo 郭师傅's house for the night.

We woke up early in the morning to go to the airport, which was some 10-15 minutes drive from Master Guo 郭师
父's house.  We said goodbye to Urumqi 乌鲁木齐 and headed back to Shenzhen 深圳.  Then we took the intercity bus back to Hong Kong and arrived around 6pm.
This concluded the long, wonderful, adventurous trip.

we saw the snow mountain already.
we were very close already... look at the snow.
do you see a small stream/river kind of thing? that's a glacier already.
so after reaching a base camp, which you will see later, we took some motorbike and the drivers took us up here and let us walk down the glacier.  this is already over 3,800m.
for the motorbike rental, it includes also an overcoat, very warm and not smelly.

to your left, you see the source of the stream/river, formed by the melting of snow, the glacier.
was Kawawa pondering?  or taking a dump?
a small yellow flower grew from the rock.  it sure is strong.
a closer view of the stream/river.
we also saw a pair of lover, walked by and sat over there resting,

郭师傅 knows most of them.  he comes by often I supposed.
we were heading back to 乌鲁木齐 already.
there was a road construction and we waited for quite some time.  Kawawa was bored.  but he looks cool.
one last time, this was the Mitsubishi Pajero we rode on for the past 20 days.
we arrived 乌鲁木齐 already.  this was a public bus and they were always full of people.  乌鲁木齐 was quite a modern city.  up to here, I already had my left toe run over by the car.

 notice I was sitting at the front already because I was injured.
our last dinner in 乌鲁木齐, our last dinner in Xinjiang.
even though this is a bad picture but I still want to show it because it was sort of our last group picture in Xinjiang.
one more, and they were too hungry so they started already.
finally, Day 21 and we arrived the 乌鲁木齐 airport early in the morning.
