Due to the continuous replenishment of Xinluhai glacier meltwater, the water level of Yulong Lacuo remains unchanged all year round, with a water area of 5,000 square meters. According to legend, Gesar’s Ai Fei Zhumu once came to Yulong Lacuo and was deeply moved by such beautiful and charming glaciers, azaleas, lakes and mountains, and rare birds and animals...

CD云上Dege Dege County is located in the northwest of Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture in Sichuan Province, adjacent to Ganzi County to the east, Baiyu County to the south, Jiangda County to the west across the Jinsha River, and Shiqu County to the north. It is located on the Jinsha River and Yalong The upper reaches of the river. It is the last county seat in the Sichuan section of Sichuan-Tibet National Highway 317. Dege Sutra Printing House Dege Sutra Printing House is known as "Encyclopedia of Tibetan Culture", "Bright Cultural Pearl of Tibetan Areas", and "Treasure House Under Snow Mountain". It is under the jurisdiction of Dege Gengqing Temple, which is the information center for importing and exporting Tibetan culture. The endless stream of believers in the Printing House attracts an endless stream of worshippers every day, and they turn clockwise around the Printing House. After the transfer, I will sit in the open space in front of the yard to bask in the sun and talk about the housework! The time for printing scriptures in Dege Printing Institute is only half a year, from March 15 to September 20 of the Tibetan calendar. During this period, people can visit and worship in the courtyard, which is called "Balchadon". Dege became the birthplace of Kham's standard Tibetan language, which is not unrelated to the rich cultural accumulation of the Printing Institute. Behind the Gengqing Temple Printing House is Gengqing Temple, which is the main monastery of the Sakya Sect of Tibetan Buddhism in Kham. A grand chanting ceremony is held here every morning! Location: No. 17, Wenhua Street, Gengqing Town, Dege County. Accommodation guide: Living in Dege County can be reached on foot or by taxi from the county seat.

格格巴From Dege to Changdu, it passes through Gangtuo Town, Ganzi County. This is a small town surrounded by mountains and accompanied by the Jinsha River. The terrain is very complicated, and the road to G317 is getting more and more difficult. After Gangtuo Tunnel, the Jinsha River Bridge in Gangtuo Town is in front. This bridge is an arched bridge with a very distinctive appearance. As the boundary between Sichuan and Tibet, a huge blue and white "Tibet Main Gate Welcomes You" painted sign is erected in the direction from Sichuan. The Gang Tuo Bridge was made of concrete, and it has been built more than 50 years ago. It is still the same as it has been. It has undertaken the heavy task of crossing the Jinsha River by people and vehicles in the past. It must be considered a huge project at that time.
