What people are saying:

Farewell, Sedar got up early, climbed the mountain behind the altar city, ready to pat the shocking panorama of Sedar, luck is a little, I don't know whether smoke or morning fog, smoke surrounds the Buddhist Academy Valley, waiting on the hillside for nearly three hours, the shocking scene has not been, I guess there will be no clouds and fog, had to call gold to withdraw. Check out the mountain, continue in "Larong Ruyi Restaurant" buffet vegetarian meal (20 yuan a person), again recommended. A bus for one person in three yuan goes to the parking lot below the mountain (it is recommended to take the bus in the middle bus, don't take the bus, the two park more than one kilometer up the mountain). After arriving at Seda County for six yuan, go straight to the passenger station and buy the ticket back to Chengdu tomorrow (good insurance, buy the last four tickets), 211 yuan including insurance 4 yuan. Seda reaches Chengdu about 700 kilometers, it takes 12 hours to drive, in order to take a convenient morning train, choose to stay at the station side "Seda Transportation Hotel", 100 yuan standard room, there is hot water wifi, although at the station side, but Seda station only 4 shuttles a day, so it is still very quiet, if you take the shuttle bus, Recommended to stay. Settled, rested a little, went out to hang out. The county town, that is, the cultural and performing arts center was built to a large extent, and more people were sitting in Jinma Square. But Seda's construction is good, it is estimated that the inland city is helping? Figure 1: In October 2012, I took the same photo at the same place. The past is like smoke. Today Seda, I can find memories, maybe only the back hills of the meridians.

Additional Information


Seda Larong Wuming Buddhist Academy is a large Buddhist institute. It has thousands of wooden cabins scattered on the hillside. There are many paths in the Buddhist Academy. You can take a stroll on any of them. On the slope of the southwestern corner of the prayer tower, you can overlook the entire academy. You can also take photos of the entire academy there. If you are curious about the celestial burial ceremony, you can take a ride at the academy to watch it. The scene is quite shocking. However, please make sure you respect the local ethnic customs and take no photos.
