Twelfth stage : Zhangye

After two weeks of journey, Xavier and Geraldine already gone through 2500km (1553miles), or that is more than half of China.

Between Wuwei and Zhangye, rise of the 2700m (8858 foot) mountain pass under the snow. The external temperature then felt to only 0°C (32°F).

In spite of difficulties caused by the state of roads, our two experimented drivers keep going their route. The vehicle shows a big resistance: mountain stages, temperatures drops as well as bad weather did not alter its capacities.
