Tl:dr If you don't speak Chinese or really want to hike, just go to Tiger Leaping Gorge. Balagezong is not for the weak stomach or for those afraid of heights. However, despite touristy annoyances and...

Balagezong is a relatively new sight in Shangri-La. We were not sure if it’s worth going but turned out it became the highlight of the trip. Gorgeous scenery plus glass bottom viewing platform make the experience unforgettable.
Looking for a great place for a fall hike? I was blown away by Balagezong National Park near Shangri-La in Yunnan Province. It’s simply spectacular and best enjoyed in the late fall after tourist season. The number of guests is far lower and everything much nicer that way. It takes a solid day to visit. #mynovgetaway
Balagezong National Park is a phenomenal place in Northern #yunnan Province. If you’re staying in nearby Shangri-La, it’s totally worth it to take a day and visit Balagezong. You’ll spend a fair bit of time on the bus, but there are several spots where you get out and walk. The scenery is fantastic!
Follow the winding mountain road from the four thousand elevations of the Shambhala Mountain
to the village of Bara, to the Shangri-La Grand Canyon
this section of the mountain road, repaired for ten years
once the Balaguezong nowhere Highways, more than a decade ago, were once the depths of the mountains that took more than five days to walk out.
Today, from the airport to the foot of the mountain, it is only 2 hours.
Sna Dingzhu is the "light" of the entire village of Bara.
Standing in front of Barra Dolma Lakang, looking far away from the village of Bara.
In the hinterland of this mountain, 32 families lived here for generations, and the years of 1300 years passed quietly.
Balagezong Grand Canyon offers breathtaking natural scenery. Here, you can visit the deep canyon, the awe-inspiring snowy mountains. You can choose to kayak in the valley, or visit the primitive, photogenic ancient Tibetan villages. You will also see a thousand-year Bodhi tree, the branch of which resembles human palms. It's quite fantastic. The naturally-formed Buddhist tower is also a special attraction in the park. You have to trek from the end of the Jiala village road in order to visit the Buddhist tower.
