Things To Do in Daocheng

Daocheng Yading

Nature Reserve
Grassland
Lake
Snow Mountain
rwwishartAn absolutely phenomenal destination. Budget an entire day and make sure you get an early start as the high-altitude makes the physical exertion more taxing. Transportation is provided to the trailhead but then you’re on your own. There are lots of stairs!

Snow Mountain
E23***93This is another destination within the Yading Nature Reserve. The trail is 1.4km from the entrance. It is a fairly level trail that winds its way across mountain streams until you get to the viewing platform. Compared to the five lakes or the milk sea, this is not a must-see. I hiked this trail first, in retrospect I should have done it last. This trail is a one-way trip, not connected to any other trail. However, for those who are not ready for the 9km hike up to the milk sea, this is good practice with outstanding and unforgettable views.

Lake
rwwishartThis is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow in Yading! After several grueling hours of hiking up stars and ascending maybe a 1000 meters, you finally arrive at Milk Lake. And it’s worth it! The lake is desolate and beautiful. Walk around the edges to get away from other people. It’s a lovely place to visit!
Daocheng White Tower
4.6/5
85 Reviews
Ancient Pagoda
CD云上Daocheng Baita ~ is the largest white tower in Ganzi Prefecture. The turning of mountains and water into white towers is the custom of Tibetans. It turns into three circles of white towers. It is a compulsory course for local Tibetans every morning, mid-day and late. Tibetans believe that every turn of the drum is a blessing [with hands closed].

Nature Reserve
Grassland
National Park
rwwishartWe went in late November so the grasslands had already turned brown for the season and most of the animals were gone. Still, it was a beautiful location and great on the way back from the Milk Sea. Evening light is best here for photos.
