Travel in Ngari From Tsochen to Renduo
The route from Tsochen to Renduo, is seldom decribled no matter marked in the map ot searched in Google; we are traveling according to the GPS track of a rider who has gone through this route last year; but we have no idea if we will miss our way or not. It can be seen from the map that we will go through several Tso-es (lakes) in this day, such as Davatso, Tarotso, Zabuye-tso, Renqingxiubu-tso and Anglaren-tso.      

The tradtional Grand-North Route is from Tsochen to Gaize and Geji via Dongtso, without Renduo,Yare and Xiongba; so there are less people round these lakes than other lakes on this way. 

Zabuye-tso, also known as Zabuye Salt Lake, is located in Zhongba County, between Pajiang and Tsochen, with a total area of 235 square kilometers and an altitude of 4400 meters. As one of the top three lithium salt lakes in the world, Zabuye-tso is abundant of various mineral substances such as mirabilite, trona, lithium, potassium, boron and so on.
