Joined the team for some parts of the tour:
Cycling from Kashgar and across western Chang Tang was in a team of three,
the fourth person joined at Toze Kangri BC.
After successful ascent of Toze Kangri the team split up due to different time schedules. Kjetil returned to Kashgar on the same route as inwards, while AC cycled south towards Gege.
Waltraud and Andy had time for another three weeks to explore Aru Basin by bike and to ascent Tagchagpuri on the way back to Domar.
