Great film: Across the Plateau

This is one I am watching now, dreaming of cycle touring in China in coming years. It is about six retired people, from Guangzhou, who ride more than 3,000 km from north-west China and into Tibet, passing through lhasa and then to Everest base camp. The film is called ‘Across the Plateau‘.

  1. Sounds good Roland. I am a fan of Chinese cinema. I have just got ‘Black Coal, Thin Ice’, so looking forward to watching that next week. One of my favourites is ‘Blind Shaft’, worth a watch, if you haven’t seen it.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Will do. I’ve just finished watching the film. Absolutely wonderful. All experienced the Cultural Revolution, have had tough life experiences and health problems, so in their ‘retirement’ they have devoted themselves to cycling – really tough rides. Apparently, their next ride is 7,000 km in the far north-west of China and then back to Guangzhou in the south east.
