About Kangding

The tune "Kangding Love Song" is sung about Kangding in both the north and south of China. Kangding is located in the eastern part of the Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture. This historic, high-plateau ancient city is the capital of the Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture. Built across both banks of the river, this ancient city is full of ethnic style. The ethnic minorities from here are known for their song and dance. This area is also very rich in high-plateau ethnic customs. The coexistence of majestic glaciers and forests is one of Kangding's unique landscapes. This attracts many tourists—both Chinese and foreign—to stay here.

Trip Moments

weiyishan   
Over the folds of the mountains along the way, Chongshan stood upright and the clouds haunted. Folding Mountain is known as the Kimba First Pass. Since the Erlang Mountain Tunnel has been connected, it has become the first challenging mountain on the Sichuan-Tibet line. After passing through the 4,298-meter pass, the National Highway 318 enters the photographer's paradise, Xinduqiao, and it is a Tibetan area in the true sense. Danshan Mountain Panshan Highway is a veritable Nine Curves and Eighteen Bends. The most experience is the riding or the journey of the hikers. It is beautiful in the hardship of climbing. In the case of downhill sections, you must pay attention to slow down and avoid accidents. The largest viewing point is to look at the Gongga Peaks at the top of the fold. In the distant places, the mountains are stacked, the snow is white, and the "king of the mountains" - the Gongga Mountain at an altitude of 7556 meters, is close at hand. The area is north to the size of Jinchuan in Aba Prefecture, Sichuan Province. The east of the mountain is the mountainous area, while the west of the mountain is the eastern part of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. It is a true Tibetan area, so the mountain is natural. It has become an important attraction for tourism on the Sichuan-Tibet line. How dangerous is the road, how good the scenery is, parking to see the scenery, the mountain is big, but it just has the distant atmosphere of travel. I finally got to the mountainous gate, I like it very much. Six years ago, there were many beautiful scenery in the mountains and mountains. Unfortunately, this time I was repairing and I couldnt shoot anything. In the afternoon, the blue sky and white clouds are beautiful. When there is no special scenery, use the car as a prop.
