Hello, my name is yuyinping, you can call me nancy , i was born on 1992, a sophomore at the Hefei university, I love travel and photograph when i join the couchsurfer, the Tibet dream has become stronger and stronger .Because i've see many people make it into reality.
I'm thinking of find a travelling companion go to Tibet by hitchhiking on summer months, July and August. Absolutely it will be a long journey. As usual, I’ll find couch during the trip, although I still a newcomer here, but I’m not rookie on the internal couchsurfer in china. So I assure you that our trip will filled with surprise and miracles. I’m seriously post this request and definitely want to find a adventurous travelling companion.
If you are interested in my plan, you can send Email for me to discuss more details. My email address is xiazaiyuzhong@163.com.
I will back to shanghai at winter holiday, we can talk face to face about the trip if you also live or study in shanghai.
Best wishes,
Yours nancy

Is it so ?

Then we should go for k2 Base Camp..



The walk to Concordia, K-2 BC however, is not a task to be
undertaken lightly. It's a hard trek up and down the gorges, across
rushing icy torrents, through broken rocks, over wire-rope bridges and
through crevasse glaciers.

As a foreigner, in U-Zang (chinese TAR) we are not allowed to HH and camp since maybe 2008 and rules are more and more strict lately every day. Check some relative info sources, - in U-Zang foreigners have to get with "organized" group of at least 4 or 5 people SAME NATION and than are accepted - that's why lately many foreigners getting organize on CS too , but still - you must stay in state permitted hotels and cannot leave big cities. Similar (just not SUCH strict) rules are since 2008. If I can recommend trek to Tibet, visit Kham or Amdo, which are also in PRC's Qinghai and Sichuan because restrictions do not cover other parts of Tibet but U-Zang. Nice trip!

I will be in China in the summer and I also thought to hh and camp in Tibet (if I can get in).
So does this only count for Tibet? Is it possible to hitchhike and camp in other rural parts of China?

"Ü-Tsang" in spelling according to english wikipedia. Than I think no more explanation is needed. You can google info about this region by yourself :) Happy Losar to all :)

Maybe K2, It has earned a parlous reputation like no other mountain in the world. It has been called the savage mountain and the world’s most dangerous.
