Daocheng (稻城) is located in southern Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in China’s Sichuan province, in the southeastern portion of the Tibetan Plateau. The Aden (亚丁) Nature Reserve in Daocheng is a top vacation destination famed for its snowy peaks. The Khampa (康巴) Cultural Region, part of Daocheng County, is an important part of Khampa culture. The religion practiced in Daocheng County is Tibetan Buddhist Lamaism. Of the 13 monasteries in the county, the most renowned are the Shugden (雄登) and Gonggaling (贡嘎岭) monasteries.
rwwishartAn absolutely phenomenal destination. Budget an entire day and make sure you get an early start as the high-altitude makes the physical exertion more taxing. Transportation is provided to the trailhead but then you’re on your own. There are lots of stairs!
rwwishartThis is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow in Yading! After several grueling hours of hiking up stars and ascending maybe a 1000 meters, you finally arrive at Milk Lake. And it’s worth it! The lake is desolate and beautiful. Walk around the edges to get away from other people. It’s a lovely place to visit!
E23***93This is another destination within the Yading Nature Reserve. The trail is 1.4km from the entrance. It is a fairly level trail that winds its way across mountain streams until you get to the viewing platform. Compared to the five lakes or the milk sea, this is not a must-see. I hiked this trail first, in retrospect I should have done it last. This trail is a one-way trip, not connected to any other trail. However, for those who are not ready for the 9km hike up to the milk sea, this is good practice with outstanding and unforgettable views.
rwwishartWe went in late November so the grasslands had already turned brown for the season and most of the animals were gone. Still, it was a beautiful location and great on the way back from the Milk Sea. Evening light is best here for photos.
12飘飘cjThis place is definitely worth going. I will not regret it. But if there is a high counter, it should be considered carefully. After all, there are more than 4,000 meters above sea level. In addition to the scenery, it also tested itself. If there is no altitude reaction, it is recommended that you bring a bottle of water and a proper amount of dry food. Don't listen to the commentator, take everything in the supermarket with you. My companions hardly drink water, let alone oxygen, energy, hot food, etc. all take down the mountain. I bought two chocolates to take home to eat.
We went to Yading scenic area around end of Nov. It’s warmer than we expected and it’s the start of low season that entrance to the park was free. Less tourists, good weather and free entrance make such a great timing to visit the magnificent site.
This is one of the first things you see when you finally arrive in the Yading Scenic Area. The bus ride from the park gates to this point takes about an hour, but this is your reward. It’s absolutely stunning. Don’t spend too much time on the front end tho as you have a long way to hike to get to the Milk Lake!
It takes a long long bus ride to reach Yading National Scenic Park, but it’s an amazing place. Haven’t even managed to get into the park proper yet and am already impressed with the scenery. Just be forewarned that’s it’s VERY difficult to secure a hotel as a foreigner during the off-season. #naturalwonders
Yading Nature Reserve is one of my bucket list in asia and she is not standard national park. She is the mystical Shangri-la. Surrounded by the three majestic mountains and the rich Tibetan Buddhism’s influence, the entire environment manifests an indescribable, high spiritual aura.

Yading National Park and some pics from Litang, the city that has just a few tourists but is very lovely. Litang is the best place for me and I need to go back there again. China is becoming a country that I keep visiting every year for 4 years now. Just love it. #wintergetaway #lovechina #china #yading #worldheritage #travelinspiration #instagramworthydestinations #unforgettableexperiences
Hello Yading in first time.
The impressiveness of Yading Nature Reserve, located at the south of Daocheng, situated around magnificent snow mountains, and also encircled by forested valleys, crystal-clear rivers. This place definitely presents you the wonderful stunning landscapes you'll ever see.
I brushed Daocheng Yading again in October. It is really the most beautiful blue planet in October. I dont know how to drive without a car.
When to start, I cant help but brush a few times for the place I like! Going to the same place in different seasons, the feelings are completely different! This time, the second brush chose Daocheng Yading in the most beautiful season at the end of October, and by taking the bus in Chengdu, it is measured to go to Daocheng Aden is also super convenient and save money
- Transportation / Hh / super money-saving bus
Xinnanmen station 270 270 270
From the Chengdu passenger station, you can buy tickets online in advance (a certain course)! There is only one bus per day, it takes 2 days to stay in Kangding for 1 night! Drivers along the way will also stop to take pictures, eat what, the overall experience is not bad!
The secret must be bought online in advance, such a seat can be selected in advance, the first line of sight is really not too good

West Sichuan Line is one of the most beautiful routes for self-driving tours. Although it is hard, it is full of beautiful scenery.
is steep, and this section of the winding road is very close to the sky. Hovering like a ladder, the clouds are sometimes below the road, and sometimes the yak and flock of the mountain are on both sides of the road. I am very fortunate that we have taken a new road that was just opened in July and the road is very good. The navigation has not yet been displayed, and the way to the road reaches the color. The road is picturesque.
From Daocheng to Litang, passing the amazing scenery 'Haizi Mountain', with an average elevation of 4,700 meters. It is the largest ancient ice body relic in the plateau. It is said that there are more than one thousand seas of all sizes.
Sudden foggy rain when driving here, the ridiculous sense of ridiculousness, there is a melancholy beauty, different from the magnificent beauty of Aden.
