Daocheng Yading
5,956 Reviews
Nature Reserve
Daocheng Yading, also known as Yading Nature Reserve, is known by locals as Aden Scenic Area. Located in the southern part of Daocheng County in Ganzi Prefecture, it is mainly composed of three mountains, Xiannairi, Yangmaiyong, and Xianuoduoji, as well as surrounding rivers, lakes, and alpine meadows. There are not only magnificent and sacred snow-capped mountains in the scenic area, but also vast meadows, colorful forests, and blue crystal clear lakes. Hiking on foot like the local Tibetans is a better way to experience the scenery in Yading. However, due to the high altitude of the Aden Protected Area, the entire walk still requires considerable physical fitness.

Milk sea, also known as Luorong Cuo, is located in a hollow at the foot of Yang Maiyong Mountain, a sacred mountain in Yading, Baocheng county. It is an ancient glacial lake shaped like a water drop, and is named Milk Lake because there is a circle of milky white calcium sediment by the lakeside. The only ways to get from Luorong Pasture to Milk Lake are by walking or renting a horse from a horse caravan on the pasture. Because of its position relatively high above sea level and rugged mountain paths, the route requires good physical condition and you should pay attention to your safety when proceeding.
