Tagong Prairie, "Tagong", is a Tibetan language meaning "the place that Bodhisattva likes". It is located at an altitude of 3730 meters above sea level. When you get off the bus, you feel that the sky is so close to the horizon. You can touch it when you reach out. Under the shelter of the Snow Mountain, it is so sacred. There is a fee for entering the so-called Tagong Prairie. It is similar to the ordinary grassland. There is not much need. The local Tibetans live for a long time. It is not recommended to talk to them. The Ganzi Pagoda is the most famous grassland in Ganzi Prefecture. The terrain is undulating and gentle, the water and grass are abundant, and the cattle and sheep are in groups. The rivers, grasslands, forests, mountaines, temples, Tibetan houses and rich Tibetan customs along the grasslands make you feel like you are in a beautiful world without worry, and the most beautiful scenery of Ganzi is presented to the tourists. . Yala Snow Mountain is also known as the Yala Mountain. It is one of the four great mountain areas in the Tibetan area recorded in the famous Tibetan epic The King Gesar.

The top of the mountain is snowy all year round and the clouds are haunting. From different angles, the snow-capped mountains are different in shape, like the lotus throne surrounded by petals, and the Maitreya Buddha sitting on the side, full of aura.

Not long after Tagong Town, you can clearly see the distant Yala Snow Mountain, the weather is too powerful, the endless blue sky and the clouds at your fingertips.
Further to the Tagong grassland, the wind blows the grass and sees the cattle and sheep, so the good ones have no appearance in the world. It is said that the most beautiful scenery in western Sichuan is on the road, probably like this.
Tagong Prairie recommends the best self-driving, you can take a photo at any time
All the way to the direction of the Tagong grassland, the mountain has become more gentle, there are large grasslands, there is a hint of cow dung in the air.
See the long prayer wheel and the white pagoda on the top of the prairie. I know that the nearby is the Tagong Temple.
Tibetans devour the scriptures devoutly and shuttle through the promenade. The Tagong Grassland is a pure pastoral grassland closest to Kangding. It is the most beautiful and lively season in the Tagong Grassland from late June to early August. If you are lucky, you can catch up with the grand traditional horse racing club.
Some people think that this is a grass dam, meaning little, but in the eyes of the photographer, this is a surprising location. The wildflowers along the Tagong River are full of flowers. On the green grass, occasionally there are tents with white patterns on the blue background. There may be leisurely grazing figures such as yaks, horses or sheep. It will become clear and free.
Tagong Temple is an important part of the Tagong Prairie. There are three mountain ranges behind the temple. There are many triangles or squares of flags on the mountain. It is in the wind and is densely packed, although the colors are The past glory has been lost in the storm, but it does not affect the piety of the Tibetans. It is said that the scriptures are read by the wind through the ears of Buddha. It is the three gods of Sancha Mountain in the Tibetan Buddhism Department.
The climate in western Sichuan is really changeable. Even in the early summer, the clouds are covered, and the hail is accompanied by snow and ice. It instantly becomes a frozen world. In this day, we have really experienced four weathers: eye, rain, snow, and hail! After arriving at Bamei Town, the road gradually widened. It was no longer the Panshan High Road. The road became an asphalt road. It was surrounded by two rows of neat trees, and there were no marginal grasslands on both sides. Walking and walking, suddenly a golden stunned face came to the forefront, suspected to break into the dreamland, the ground is full of fallen leaves, and can not see the infinite yellow in front. Arriving at the Tagong Prairie, you can see that the high hillsides are filled with prayer flags of various colors, and a golden square tower echoes them. The distant cloud is a rolling snow mountain, magnificent.
