welcome to this new episode this week our goal is to go to the north of the country to visit the nomadic people who live up there who live at altitude because the higher we go the colder it is and the colder it is the happier we are and there we are pedaling I have just climbed the first code I am waiting for jade we are at an altitude of 1500 meters now and the adventure continues after the usual intro we are Jade and Yanouk we have left everything to set off on the roads of the world our goal is to reach malaysia from france by bike every week we invite you into our daily lives to live our craziest adventures each other welcome to this new episode we meet you where we have left last week in the city of kara-Kul we pack up and leave Film moi pas! What is happening ? I want to eat poutine… I'm exhausted from always eating the same thing. it's the third restaurant we went to to try to find fries it's not poutine but at least it comforts me You succeeded! but this is only the beginning. Yeah, I'm trying to keep the troops motivated . We got water. Oh yeah ? Sweat burns my eyes How much water did we get? yes holds my bike Two bottles of water. One that it's lemon water Ah your favorite water! yeah I'll carry it well done! Since I carry all the rods! we're no exception to the rule after the climb comes the descent and it's magnificent we're on our way we'll take you on a long descent towards Lake Toktogul we'll find a place to rest for the rest of the day in the cool it's magical And now the day's work is over, all that remains is to take advantage of this beautiful day , it was really a really great morning and there we have lunch and we rest on the menu this morning, small oatmeal with cinnamon and a little honey that it's going to be great it's going to be good it's going to be good so small or big problem remains to be seen in fact it's that since turkey the end of the tent the poles come off in fact I'm going to show you it's going to be simpler in big this part there is fixed on the dome just on the other side and the end it comes here and it does not stop coming off in fact because the thread is completely eaten I tried to put some glue it hadn't worked it always ended up coming off and I thought to myself J I'm going to try to melt some plastic in the thread to solder it once and for all in its base but in fact what happened is that it seemed to work but the plastic inside the pin melted too with the plastic that I put in so I aggravated the problem a bit but without aggravating it too much what I'm going to melt some plastic in the middle to actually attach this little black piece that holds the elastic I myself I'm a little shot in the foot it's not going to solve my problem at the start but at least I'm going to fix my fault and in fact it's plastic that makes up for that it's just little cubes that you melt with a lighter like I no longer have a lighter, I do it on the stove and I created a tip in fact I enlarged the tip of the elastic so that it comes to hang in the stirrup I will show you in images it may be easier and I think it works I think I fixed my problem Good morning that's it reached the city of toktogul which was our goal to rest for a few days we are at the foot of our great ascent which will last several days and we found our friends Ash and Shivali they are sick they have decided to trace tajikistan is to do everything by bike so far I know you're watching the videos I give you all my admiration and there we're sitting here too too well I'll show you we're going to have breakfast it's still cool we're at the Kyrgyzstan and it's exotic it's exotic because we're not really used to having lunch in a yurt inside we find not only a hearty meal but also magnificent colors of Kyrgyz culture this morning the breakfast already and we plan the rest of the trip with them in fact we will have to climb a pass up to 3000 meters of altitude so we better prepare well but at least we will be able to share the pain all together it will be anyway kinda cool didn't know what it was and it smells in short we don't know too much I drip it we had the impression that it was like I had the impression that it was like the cream it's a little philadelphia but a little bit stronger. It must be horse milk or I don't know what but in the end it's just butter You ate a spoonful of butter. It wasn't bad. we have a nice omelet this morning oh cool. Today is the big start let's go

I've never had so much water on my bike since the start of the trip I think I'm at 9 liters 10 liters almost it's still not bad I feel it very well on my bike we are buying honey directly from the beekeeper after leaving the city we regularly come across small kiosks offering honey to passers-by seeing the hives of bees directly on the roadside we don't couldn't resist we don't regret our choice at all Wow it's really good! the excitement is at its peak today because we're cold I'm so good here and yes we're going to put our jackets on for the first time And it's been great fun finally we have incredible conditions right now we're a super handsome spot we only did 20 kilometers today it's perfect for us we have a private beach with good the sky is still relatively overcast so it accentuates the pleasure of being cold a little What you hear in this moment it's the sound of the river but the torrent of cold water We can put all our water supply in the fridge we prepare the morning coffee we relax we appreciate life we ​​appreciate life and particularly here where it there is no network we distance ourselves from the internet and it is frankly good the little fire for this evening what more could you ask for with the risk of rain we install our houses under a shelter we are really quiet in this beautiful nature the rain doesn't even bother us usual breakfast and the e precious morning coffee we are ready for another day on the road here we go again for this second day of ascent and scheduled time 20 kilometers once again of a short day we have 500 m of altitude difference it's perfect for us it's already almost noon and we're starting the day it's time to work today we're doing 16 km 700 meters of altitude difference it might not be easy I think it's the hardest day of the four days of the ascent today is day 3 the hardest. Tomorrow it won't be easy We have 400m of elevation for 7km. I think that's going to be the most difficult. Two very painful days. and here we are on the road for this third day of climbing we had a nice rain last night fortunately the sky remains overcast but we are dry it will be perfect to climb this big big climb that we are going to have today. Come on, let this third day of climbing begin , that's it, 11 kilometers covered out of 16, we 're making pretty good progress, that's still good news and that's always the problem, the cars passing by when I try to explain to you. something finally We are in the middle of the mountains it's magnificent we are there we go along valleys well it's still steep but there are yurts everywhere people are pretty nice because I didn't talk about it still on the channel at least I don't think so but we think it's a bit of a shame no I think we had perhaps too many expectations on the kindness of people but people are a bit dry cold they try to take money from you sometimes good there it is a great generality not all Kyrgyz are like that but we have met several of them these last two days it has been rather difficult on the meetings so but here here people just a hello A hello a smile is rather rare s to have and there we have a lot of them it's very nice because we really come here for the landscape we approach the 2200 meters of altitude and it is not easy on a bike and we do not have the breath a little a little shorter than usual it's really our cycling record to have climbed so high it's here in Kyrgyzstan that it's happening we are currently at an altitude of 2600 meters we are still very close we are a few kilometers from the summit it will go until tomorrow there we are waiting for our companions and there we are waiting for our companions we are warming up a little Jade is freezing. As you can see it's really not nice hot! It's super cold! We are really at a really beautiful spot directly on the side of the road we decided to stop here and frankly we do not regret at all we have access to the beautiful river behind us it is a noise that allows us to sleep very well is really very cool and now Ash is trying his water filter so we have unlimited water we too have our water filter system so there is no problem we don't won't run out of water tonight since we got out of the big city, went deep into the mountains and decided to lower the kilometers a day a little, we find a really normal life, a semblance of normal life really I think that's the thing that burned me the most was having to pedal at night very early in the morning and spending the rest of the day sweating doing nothing all day for twelve thirteen and even sometimes 2 p.m. sometimes whereas

now we can get up around 8 a.m. we start at 9 a.m. and we finish at noon we it's not hot the rest of the day really the mind is at its best sometimes it's hard to believe it but it's really the middle of July and we're bivouacking right next to a big snow bank so a jacket It's definitely not hot, but we won't complain we're really very happy This morning it's time to attack the last segment to reach the summit at more than 3100 meters of altitude we're really very excited to start this day it's right it 's 10 o'clock it's too much either to start a very penard day at this time barely a week ago we were dying of heat and we had to stop even an hour ago whereas there we start the day now at 10 am with a sweater we're so good let's go reach the top! How's Yanuk? yeah it's the altitude in fact yeah in the middle we have the wind at our back and it's cold but I look for my air as soon as we start pedaling It's ok there's only 5km left For real Jade beats everyone I don't know what you ate but it's far ahead of us. I didn't eat anything, that's the thing. We have just reached 3175 meters of altitude the summit is ours we are very very very happy to have reached the top it was still very difficult the last 5 km the wind is cold it burns the throat it is difficult there we tell ourselves that we are happy to be on the bike to accomplish this kind of thing we are very proud of ourselves now we just have to find a place to eat and celebrate all that I am very proud of you mi amor because it must be said you arrived 10 minutes before me at the top a real war machine are you proud of yourself? Yeah quite proud what is wonderful is that as we have reached the top and well it will go down and depending on whether komoot we will go down for 100 km it will be mainly downhill we will sometimes have to pedal unfortunately but it is still 100 km of pleasure that awaits us One of the most beautiful descents to date. we stopped in a restaurant and there I hit a wall of fatigue I'm completely exhausted we just have to find a place to camp we're going to look behind the building to see if it works Why everything takes me more of time? now our second day of descent begins so we go down again and we take advantage of it, it is still relatively warm before suffering a second time to go to Lake Son Koul which is likely to be really very nice lately we find the energy we had when we left we meet great people on the road and we are more determined than ever to pedal this magnificent country before concluding this video it was important for us to highlight the generosity of two donors France Paquette and Celestino Esteves thank you both for believing in our project and this is what concludes this video thank you very much once again for encouraging us every week it makes us extremely happy as you have seen in this video we are extremely happy to be here at kyrgyzstan because we have rediscovered the pleasure of traveling by bicycle we have rediscovered the why we travel by bicycle, that's frankly And if you want to have more content until the next YouTube video well it's on Patreon that it's happening and for the others we say see you soon for a next video ciao
