Daocheng Yading
3,847 Reviews
Daocheng Yading, also known as Yading Nature Reserve, is known by locals as Aden Scenic Area.

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.

Trip Moments

The observation deck of Rabbit Mountain looks like a rabbit's ear standing in the wind at a distance. The mountain is very strange. The whole mountain is covered with stone particles. The grass is not born, and the wind is particularly large. After passing the Rabbit Mountain Observation Deck, it was soon to Haizi Mountain. It is one of the four great mountain mountains in Tibet. It is composed of large and small granite boulder, stone river, stone sea and various forms of ice erosion. Rock basins, these sinuous rocks and more than a thousand large and small seas are distributed on the mountains with an average elevation of 4,500 meters. The scale density is the highest in China. Xia Ruzhen under the Haizi Mountain is located in the depths of Haizi Mountain, covering an area of 15 square meters. Kilometers, 4733 meters above sea level, it is said that Xia Rucuo is the place where the god crows live. It is one of the famous Linghu Lakes in Haizi Mountain. Tibetan Buddhism believes that everything is spiritual, especially the stone. The Tibetans regard the stone as a god, so the stones, slate and pebble of different sizes are formed into an "altar". "Mani heap", these are very common in the intersections, lakes, mountains and temples of Tibetan places. Many people don't know why this kind of stone piles are everywhere, and they can't understand the true meaning of Mani heap. It doesn't matter if you don't understand. But don't arbitrarily offend these Mani heaps, let alone take Mani Stone, otherwise the consequences will be unimaginable. For Haizishan, some people like these ridiculous feelings. Some people are disgusted with it, and for me, they like this scene...
