At the only listed hostel in Lanshou (hard to find in that big city)I again bumped into Canadian Marc, who took the plateau route and beat me by 2 days.
Leaving Lanshou I was still determined to head up the silk route and then through Western China. Even although I had been informed that I would not be able to extend my visa for another month, I thought I'd still give it a go. Daily distances were:- Road works camp 62 km; Yellow River valley 81 km; Railway village 79 km; Weiwu district 67 km; Canyon campsite 159 km; and Lanshou (X2) 128 km. Total distance is 123 910 km.
