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.
_We***21Amazing views and a photgrapher’s paradise. However, you need to be lucky with the weather to see everything. Also be prepared for the crowds. The cable car is incredibly high and long and defintely worth it as it’s the only way to access the top-most viewing platform.
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!
埃文日记Mugecuo is a scenic spot that is easy to overlook when you visit Ganzi in western Sichuan. In fact, the scenery of Mugecuo is also outstanding in western Sichuan. In addition, it is located in Kangding, which is closer to Chengdu. You can consider spending a weekend. , Come to a relaxing and pleasant trip to Western Sichuan. Mugecuo is one of the largest alpine lakes in northwestern Sichuan. It is more than 3,700 meters above sea level, with a water area of nearly four square kilometers and a water depth of more than 70 meters. The entire scenic area is developed and built around this lake, so the core scenery of Mugecuo is the mountain lake, Snow-capped mountains and vast lawns. The sightseeing in the scenic spot is very simple: take the scenic bus directly to the deepest Mugecuohaizi, and then walk backwards in turn, get on and off at each scenic spot, bus-style play. There are many large and small scenic spots in the scenic area, but the core is three major areas: Mugecuo-Yaochi Boiling Spring-Qisehai. Checking in these three locations basically completed the tour of the essence of Mugecuo. Because Mugecuo adopts a sightseeing car to make a fixed tour, the efficiency is very high. It takes 3 hours to walk around the horse and watch, but it takes more than half a day to savor it, plus round-trip transportation, it is recommended to arrange a day. The temperature difference in Mugecuo Scenic Area is very large, especially the deepest Mugecuohaizi, even if you only wear short sleeves in summer, you will feel cold and swish, but once you start to visit it, the temperature becomes warmer. For more information, please see my travel notes.

埃文日记Hailuogou’s hot springs are well-known. See the glacier hot springs, which are perfectly matched. Evan reminds everyone of the following points: 1. Hailuogou Hot Spring is in the scenic area, but you do not need to buy tickets, you can directly navigate and drive to it; 2. The hot spring area is located in Gonghe Village. There are many choices. It is recommended to directly choose the largest hot spring-Gongga Shentang Hot Spring; 3. It is not necessary to stay in a hotel to go to Gongga Shentang Hot Spring. You can consider staying in the village or Moxi Ancient Town and buy a hot spring ticket separately; 4. Find a local person and an inn to book a hot spring ticket, which is more affordable than buying online; , If you want to shoot a large hot spring with few people and beautiful scenery, it is recommended to go during the day.
半坡居士2005Yesterday, I went, mainly to see the snow, which is good value for money. Because it belongs to the New Year's Day, I just started to take the car on the mountain, and the cars are waiting in line. But the scenic spot is coordinated and the car is not waiting for so long. . . It's not difficult to climb the snowy mountain, but it can be lit up before your eyes. . .
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
Sichuan- Kangding & Tagong
wonderful mountains and hiking routes paired with incredible nice people and good food 🌶
Best to get an SUV and go around by yourself to experience and explore the nature
Also do not miss out the chance to go around Mt. Gongga on a horse 🐎
An incredible beautiful area - pure nature, blue skies, yaks all around and fascinating local culture to explore. It’s really worth the time to go there.

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
