About Ganzizhou

Garzê is located in western Sichuan Province on the southeast of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. It is populated primarily by Tibetan people. The prefectural seat of Dartsedo (or Kangding) has been an important location for the tea and horse trade between the Han and Tibetan peoples since the Song dynasty (960-1279). The prefecture's Dêgê County is known as one of the three major centers of ancient culture, along with Lhasa, Tibet and Xiahe, Gannan. It is one of the important cradles of Tibetan culture. Garzê has many tourist attractions, including the Hailuogou Glacier Forest Park in Luding County, and Paoma (“Running Horse”) Mountain and Mugecuo Lake in Dartsedo. There is also the famous Luding Chain Bridge, which was designated as an important cultural site for preservation after the Liberation and had a revolutionary relic exhibition hall built to display historical materials related to the fight of the Red Army.

Grassland
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.

Trip Moments

I like to live in a place where I can see snow mountains or the sea. There are snow mountains, forests, lakes, lama temples and many cute little animals in the town, there are Tibetan horses, wild goats and the most lovely "ear fertilization circle" and the image of people is called "moving leather hat" ". Although I have not been to Jiuzhaigou and Hailuogou, the mountains and lakes of the Tupugou have made me intoxicated! Due to the undeveloped state of the town, the road to the mountain is covered with potholes and gravel of varying sizes, and there is almost no cell phone signal. However, along the way, you can see the largest lama temple in Chaluo Township and the Tibetan toast building that has experienced hundreds of years of vicissitudes. There are natural hot springs on the hillside that can be used to cook eggs, and break the rumors that the Tibetans only wash three times in their lifetime, because there are pools of Tibetans on both sides of the mountain road, they are soaking in Bathing and singing in the hot spring pool. At noon, we sat at the lake of Toubu and enjoyed the lake and the mountains for a simple lunch. The drivers brother told me that if you stand at the lake of Tuopu in June and July, you will make a squeaky sound. The fish in Pu Lake will hear you intimately. The time is fast, and the moment is approaching the afternoon. Due to the difficult road, we must embark on the road out of the mountain early, so we are reluctant to leave the beautiful and quiet Tuogougou.

There are always a few moments in a person's life that are worth collecting for a lifetime. There are always a few moments to hit the heart of the heart, and this is the case when you see the Gongga Snow Mountain, where the snow-capped peaks of the clouds stand under the blue sky and white clouds. Shocking, the feeling of touching the sea of clouds on the top of the cloud... said that the desire and reality are only one step away, and we have finally reached this goal by stepping over this step. It is your persistence and touched this mountain. From Hailuogou to Fantasia to Xinduqiao, we finally gave us this surprise at Zimeikou. That cold windy afternoon, I stood in front of the king of Lushan. I have seen a lot of snow-capped mountains. I thought I would face it calmly, but I was wrong. When I saw the magnificent snow-capped mountains and people When I was suffocating, I was deeply impressed! 4550 meters of Zimeikou, the continuous snow peaks lined up in front of the word, the highest main peak is like the king's general arrogant peaks, it is far from heaven, standing in the clouds, but overlooking the world, calm and warm, blue sky Under the white clouds, the king of Mount Lushan showed its beautiful outline very much. I came from afar, just for the appointment on your side. In front of the magnificent mountain, we are so small, make the most sincere wish, the camera shutter can be heard hundreds of meters away in the quiet valley. Sound, don't turn around, you know that you have been...
