Mt Telecabin Tochal (3)

~~~~SNOW STORM~~~~

You might ask how heavy the snowing was. Maybe you can get some ideas from the photo below.

This was taken at 1200m above sea level. The rest of this entry is all about this area of the mountain.

This photo is blur not because my camera lens were fogged. It's because the snow was too thick and the wind was strong.
And it was knee-deep....
What's with this Ali baba pose? Hahaha..

QY: Brrrr... Cold leh....

QY: Maybe tasting the ice will make me feel less cold...

Hahahah.. weird lor.. funny QY.

There is a small shop just beside the cable car station. They serve hot tea and sold snacks. We ordered a total of 12 cups of tea for everyone. Everyone couldn't wait to land their cold palms on some hot surface. QY even suggested me to put my palms onto that metal tub you see in the above picture. That tub was used to contain the tea. Their tea is quite special and the sugar they used was a big brown lump.

Cheers~ Taking photos with the Iranians. We took alot of photos with the Iranians in fact. They were sporting and friendly people. When they saw us taking photos, they all ran over and joined in! We didn't even asked them to join in! So funny....

A series of super funny group photos we took before the Iranians joined in.

In this above photo, nai ba and kanglong were actually carrying me! 'Put me down!!!'

The above few pics were taken with multi burst. hee heee.. cute right?

2 Iranians joined us in photo taking...

Then a few more Iranians started joining us.....

And more....
And more....

And alot more! hahaha.. Seems like they were having fun joining us in the photo taking. Can you see me? I am once again hidden lor.

Behaving like good brothers.
Nai ba! Put me down!! Naiba tried to carry me but I think I was too heavy for him la....

Then Kanglong and Naiba combined powers! I said,"PUT ME DOWN!"

Then they decided to lift QY up too!

Then QY seems to enjoy being lifted up, kicking around like a kid.

I dunno why suddenly Li lao shi decided to mop the floor. Maybe cuz the floor was too slippery he was afraid to fall down? So funny lor..

Some interesting stuff we saw around the mountain.

I wonder if the bike can still work after being forzen like this. Totally covered in snow.

I wonder if this works too. Apparently, no one will want to ride on it and make themself dizzy in a weather like this. Imagine if you puke, your puke will be frozen and preserved there. EEE.... :P

Nice and romantic place~! I think it will be nice to sit here and drink hot tea when it's not snowing....

I like this photo very much! But I didn't see these telephone booths there. Awww.. missed it. I wonder who took this and where he took it...

Nice trees... Looked like some scenery from the korean shows~

I will blog the disasterous coach waiting incident after we left the mountain next time~

ok, from the snow storm fotos i agree that it really very cold.

but the trick is never let water/snow get into your shoes, if that happens, gone case, u'll feel at least 20 percent colder normal. n miserable(becos soggy socks)

second thing is if u play too much, for a while is shiok (becos body feels warmer), after that will get headache.

haiz,..too bad lor. .the water did get into my shoes and my toes were frozen with soggy socks.. very pek cek.. the translator told us that we should wear water proof leather shoes. haiz.. how we know right.. but now i know lor.. next time go to such places i will wear water proof shoes.

I didn't get the headache because i didn't play alot.. most of the time just walking around take photos.. too cold to move liao.
