"Some people say: a person's life at least two impulses, talk about a desperate love, go to a trip to say go. Some people say: the human heart is always far away, the closer the closer the farther away from their own heart, the soul of the person is always in the sky, the higher the climb to their soul closer. Some people say that the 318 National Highway Sichuan-Tibet Line is the hell of the body of the heaven of the eyes. Well, then go to the Sichuan-Tibet Line and go to Lhasa for a spiritual journey! On June 10th, starting from Chengdu, the scenery on this road is full of eyes, sighing the magic of nature! Looking far at the sea-luogou without the world's largest ice waterfall, boarding the milk sea and the five-color sea of Daocheng Aden, the soul of Shangri-La, challenging the limits of the body, experiencing the rich plateau style picture of the world's highest city Litang, and feeling the magnificent momentum of the Jinsha River. The mysterious quietness of the Ganga Mountain Glacier in the Shenshan Mountain of Charoshan Mountain of Bowa is worshipped, and the heroic and domineering spirit of the east Dashankou of Jueba Mountain Pass is broken. This road is not over the mountains, or between the cliffs and the rushing rivers, the eighteen-turn Nu River 72 turn Nu River Bridge, Tianlu 18, sighing the construction of the motherland generation after generation, not afraid of the difficulties and hardships to go to the next generation, With infinite wisdom and hard sweat and blood to create a clever work of the heavenly road. Along the way, there were countless yaks, antelopes and hideaways, and they were savoring the delicious food on the vast grasslands. There were also large groups of vultures sharing a yak, and trying to lay down for a generation of youths."
Reasons to Recommend: 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.

"Wuhu is particularly beautiful, just at a glance, it is a painting of ink and water. Here I feel that time is still and my mind is washed 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍."

"The Mugecuo is generally good, but the timing is not right. There are no flowers and no snow in May. There is even a rainy fog. From the seven-color seagulls, you can not see the snowy mountains. You can also go up to the top of Mugecuo to see the Gongga Mountain. The wind is a bit cold. It's okay to wear more clothes and a sunglasses hat. By the way, the foot-soaked fish in the boiling spring of the medicine pool is too itchy."
Reasons to Recommend: Mugecuo in Kangding City, also known as Dahaizi, is a mountain lake in northwestern Sichuan. The water is very clear as they come from the melted water of the snow mountains.

"Balaguzong • The secret story isolated the village from the outside world for 1300 years, until a Tibetan uncle named Snadingzhu, spent more than a decade alone in debt of billions to build a 35km mountain road, only to open the connection to the outside world. I have heard this story before, but I really felt the emotion of walking those roads and watching the beautiful scenery. Balagzon Hotel We chose to live in the ice spring hotel on the mountain, less than 1,000 yuan, there are 1v1 butlers and drivers to transfer the full ride. The restaurant is delicious and clean, the hotel staff is very enthusiastic and will introduce you to the past life here. It is recommended that friends with plenty of time stay on the mountain for one night, absolutely good value for money. The whole Baragzon. attractions are not sold and no one is selling it. It feels more warm there. I like the echo wall best because it's exciting. I think the stimulus ranking of the Hollow Bridge Glass Bridge 〉 Sliding Lock. If you choose the rope to remember to choose the track where you can take the video, you will automatically make a video and send three photos. For 49 yuan, I think it is worth it. After all, every time you do these stimulations, there is a regret that can't be recorded. Other attractions are also very good, Bala Village, temple, rafting, stupa, are the best performances of humanities and nature respectively. Have time to suggest all go, because it is really different feeling. It is really beautiful here, I stayed in Shangri-La for four days, I think it is the best. Few tourists [frown] now hope the epidemic will improve, and more friends will come to see it."
Reasons to Recommend: 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.

"To be honest, I feel that the tickets are too expensive. In addition to taking a sightseeing car to see the tiger and lion, the total cost-effectiveness of other animals is not high. There are many animals in Chengdu Zoo. The tickets for Chengdu Zoo are only 20 yuan, hahahaha."

You can see all kinds of wild animals at the park, which is a great place to learn about animals and get close to nature. It's a great place to bring kids for a wildlife adventure.

"Shuhe Ancient Town is Qingya. The night car arrived in Lijiang in the morning, took the tour line to Shuhe Ancient Town, cool in the morning, the ancient town is quiet, the host is not up, the guests are not coming, but the pupils are rushing to school. I found the inn to stay, the boss is kind, the store brother is thoughtful. After the break, visit the ancient town, the tourists are in twos and threes, much worse than before. Walk on the Qingshiban Road, feel the long distance of the tea-horse ancient road, next to the small shop, the special store is full of the store's intentions; the hotel inn is also pavilion courtyard, flowing tea table, landscape garden wind. Shuttle through the ancient lanes, hit the square street, Qinglong Bridge, there are carriages passing, horseback ringing crisp, bells sounding pleasant, as if through the old time. The best street and lane side of the stream under the slate, clear to see the bottom, visible moss, water grass was flowed with silky, the water flow is not slow, is flowing, cool, quiet down. The store has a tambourine shop, cotton and linen clothing store, silver jewelry store, handicraft ceramic leather store, the store is hospitable, operating a specialty store, I hope that tourists will enjoy. See more new people take pictures, and see young people sitting on the steps to rest. In the years of the town, travel can slow down, relax and rest the good place."

"The sea view of Lashi is good. It is not recommended to take a quiet photo of the tea horse ancient road. There are many downhills on the cement road. The horses' hooves have been skidding. The roadside found the horse shop cost reference 260+ an hour. The lakeside photo base is about 100. It is recommended to book online in advance. I was not very convenient to have a bargain on the spot. It is recommended to go by carpool/hung-wind car or taxi. The ancient city taxi is about 50 or so."
Reasons to Recommend: Lashi Sea is located 10 kilometers west of Lijiang City. It is a marvelous grassland with beautiful scenery. The water is very clear, and it is a wonderful place to visit in the spring and summer around Lijiang. This is also a habitat for many migratory birds in the winter.

"💟 In fact, the tea and horse ancient road and Lashihai are not the same place, but it is relatively close, the best route for a day trip. You can play separately. 1⃣️ The tea-horse ancient road feels very interesting. I let the horse club that the inn finds. It takes 90 minutes to ride a horse. The scenery of the horse road is good. In addition to a very few sections of cement road, most of them are mountain roads. The scenery is great. It is very ancient to take the merchant. And the horse is very stable. The horseman offers not the kind of big, fast-running horse, but a shorter, stamina horse, not fast running but very able to squat things. It is safer, not too worried about the horse. After the red punching point on the journey, the horse will be off and let the horse rest, people will take pictures. The epidemic is really small, the entire horse lane and punching point is only my two tourists 🐮 Mashe can store luggage, riding as light as possible. 2⃣️ Lunch is not expected, and there is no expectation for a day trip package. If you really don't like it, you can buy a better self-heated rice. We go to the cooperative restaurant, the turkey hot pot pipe is full, and the vegetables are added casually. 3⃣️ After riding and eating lunch, you will be invited to go to Lashihai for sightseeing. It takes about 15 minutes by car. Lashihai is a wetland park to relax. We went in early November to see many migratory birds strolling around the lake. The scenery is simple and comfortable. But if you expect a spacious and vast bay-like view, the Nala Sea is not suitable for you. But if not to rush the trip, it is recommended to go for a walk, but to arrange in the lake before, otherwise a comparison to feel that the city sea is too small."
Reasons to Recommend: Lashihai Ancient Tea-Horse Route refers to the private international trade channel existing in the southwestern part of China with the caravan as the main means of transportation. It is the corridor for the economic and cultural exchanges between the southwestern Chinese people. The Ancient Tea-Horse Route is a very special geographical title and a natural place. Spectacular scenery, a mysterious cultural tour, it contains a cultural heritage that is not developed.

"Quiet lakes, wide meadows, cattle and horses leisurely eating grass 🌿, watching the smoke rising from the village between the green grass and green land, the cattle playing by the water, the horses running freely and freely on the green grass... This is a small attraction in Lijiang ‖ Wenhai tourists do not exceed ten people... of course if It's perfect without the horse chasing it."
Reasons to Recommend: Wenhai is located in the north of Lijiang. It is a pure place that has not been extensively developed. A lake sits quietly on a broad meadow. The lake water changes colors with the blue sky. Cows and horses graze leisurely, and there are also wild ducks from time to time. Come and feel relaxed. To play Wenhai, you can charter a car from the ancient city of Lijiang. There is not much development around Wenhai. Only some herdsmen provide horseback riding services, and you can walk along the lake on horseback. The best season to visit Wenhai is around July, when the wildflowers on the meadows by the lake are in full bloom, colorful and very beautiful.
