Daocheng Yading, also known as Yading Nature Reserve, is known by locals as Aden Scenic Area. Located in the southern part of Daocheng County in Ganzi Prefecture, it is mainly composed of three mountains, Xiannairi, Yangmaiyong, and Xianuoduoji, as well as surrounding rivers, lakes, and alpine meadows. There are not only magnificent and sacred snow-capped mountains in the scenic area, but also vast meadows, colorful forests, and blue crystal clear lakes. Hiking on foot like the local Tibetans is a better way to experience the scenery in Yading. However, due to the high altitude of the Aden Protected Area, the entire walk still requires considerable physical fitness.

Lake
Milk sea, also known as Luorong Cuo, is located in a hollow at the foot of Yang Maiyong Mountain, a sacred mountain in Yading, Baocheng county. It is an ancient glacial lake shaped like a water drop, and is named Milk Lake because there is a circle of milky white calcium sediment by the lakeside. The only ways to get from Luorong Pasture to Milk Lake are by walking or renting a horse from a horse caravan on the pasture. Because of its position relatively high above sea level and rugged mountain paths, the route requires good physical condition and you should pay attention to your safety when proceeding.

Hiking in the city of Yading, passing through your world from the world through the city of Aden, where there are sacred snow mountains, vast alpine meadows, colorful autumn forests, colorful prayers, and The blue sea, the beauty of the snowy plateau seems to be concentrated here. Like the local devout Tibetans, walking to the mountains is the best way to experience the scenery of Aden. [Dacheng Aden Walking Route]: Aden Scenic Area is very large. It is recommended to arrange a two-day tour in Aden. Usually, the day before is staying in Yading Village or Riwa Town. It is recommended to play on the first day. Long line, play short-term the next day, and then return to Daocheng. [challenge self-walking long line]: day watt - tie-filled collapse - Chonggu Temple - Luorong cattle farm - milk sea - five-color sea long line recommended early morning Departure, Riwa takes a sightseeing bus for about 1 hour to fill the collapse, and then walks to Chonggu Temple for 15 minutes. This route is suitable for friends with better physical strength, which is a little more difficult. "The Passing Through Your World" is a hit, the end of the Chen and the pheasant in the harvest field, the sound of the wind blowing through the fields, Mao 18 in the endless green grass The fragment of Litchis marriage proposal is truly memorable. Here is the Luorong cattle farm. I hope that you will be as refreshing as the wind, as warm as light.
