What people are saying:

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.

    Walking down throughout this area is the best

    Too bad they don't have an English spoken guide and area map. Go up with the bus and go down walking is the best choice for us, since the scenic area quite big. We spent 3.5 hours inside.

    Lovely lake even on a snowy day

    Lovely small lake, surrounded by snow when I visited. The walk down through the forest and following a small river is lovely. The drive up the winding road from the main entrance was great too.
